If you are an engineer but didn't see the above vid yesterday, I strongly recommend it, the whole thing. We're clearly in the inflection point of this tech right now, and if you aren't experimenting with integrating some variant of it in some way into your work workflow, I think it is time. I just started using it for some scripting jobs I had been putting off this week and it honestly really helped out. There's problems aplenty in the whole space, but I'm pretty AI-pilled right now.

I had a good week. There's a mix of bug fixes and improvements to quality of life, mostly in the tag autocomplete interface.

Full changelog: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/changelog.html


So autocomplete has a couple new things. First off, there's a new 'all files ever imported/deleted' entry under the file domain button. This searches everything your client has ever seen, runs super fast, and works with 'all known tags'. Also, when editing tags, I've tightened up the selection rules and reduced the sibling spam--now, you should get the 'ideal' of what you typed at the top, then what you actually typed (if that differs), and then normal results. Also, the various paste buttons tucked into edit autocompletes now only ever add items--if any of what you paste is already in the accompanying list, it won't be removed now.

do you plan on adding yt-dlp support? i tried to import a video along with its metadata and description using the "--write-description --write-info-json" commands, but hydrus doesn't know what to do with the json files
had to do everything manually

I had a good week. I cleaned some code and fixed a bunch of small issues in tag parsing, tag display, file import options, file delete reasons, and file viewing statistics.

The release should be as normal tomorrow.

I would like to have some support. I plan to have an 'executable manager', which will let us define certain exe paths and arguments that we can send certain URLs to, e.g. 'this is a twitter video, send it to yt-dlp'.

Having nice note support in that would be a potentially significant extension, though--it would probably start off just as single files, no extra sidecars.

I do have a fairly clever manual sidecar system now, which should be able to deal with simple JSON files, but it doesn't support notes yet (just tags and URLs). You might like to have a play with it nonetheless, in prep for when I add notes, which I would like to do fairly soon. Try importing your video from your hard drive and play around with the 'sidecar' tab after hitting 'add tags/urls with the import'. If you can rename the json files to be very similar to the video file, that would help.

I had a good couple of weeks prototyping a new rating service.

Full changelog: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/changelog.html

inc/dec ratings

So, under services->manage services, there's a new 'inc/dec rating' (for increment/decrement). It works pretty much like all the other ratings, and goes in the same places, but it is a simple number counter--left-click to add, right to subtract. Middle-click lets you edit directly. I've wired it up for system:rating, too, with only one oddness--since every file starts at count 0, there's no concept of 'not rated' for this service.

I managed to get a first version of an increment/decrement integer rating service working, and I'm happy with it, but it needs more polish and my day tomorrow is crazy, so I'm putting off the release a week to finish it up and get more things done.

v519 should be on the 8th of March. Thanks everyone!

Thanks to a user's work, Export Folders now support exporting to symlinks! If you are on Windows, you may need to run hydrus in Admin mode for any symlink exporting to work (or, on Windows Pro, I believe you can mess around with Group Policy Editor to give normal user accounts the permission).

I had a good week that was unfortunately short again. There's some options to tune the new 'related tags' search and some misc little work.

Full changelog: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/changelog.html

related tags

I have added three new settings to options->tag suggestions for related tags. They are fairly advanced and deal with the technical details of the search, so I only recommend poking around if you have been enjoying this system and want to change how it works.

Full changelog: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/changelog.html

related tags

I've improved the 'related tags' test I did last week and brushed up the UI, and I'm happy enough with it that I am making it default-on for all users. You will see it after you update in your manage tags dialogs. If you do not like it, you can turn it off or customise its timings under options->tag suggestions!

I had a good couple of weeks doing a variety of work. The changelog is long, mostly fixes and improvements that don't change much, but if you use the twitter downloader or the Client API, make sure to read before you update.

Twitter changed their policies regarding third-party interfaces recently, and it seems as part of that they took down the 'syndication' API our nice twitter downloaders were using. None of them work any more!

related tags

EDIT: In final testing, this stuff was working slow IRL for me, so I reduced its search space for today. You are going to see a lot of 'search domain is too large' on the PTR. I'll keep working!

Thanks to a user who sent in a great proof of concept, the 'related tags' column (which shows in manage tags and you can turn on under options->tag suggestions) has some new buttons to test. I called them 'new 1' and 'new 2'. The first works fast but may have limited results on repositories, the second--which only shows on repositories--can only search small-count tags but gives deep results.

Secondly, if you select some tags in the main tags list, the 'related tags' search will now only search those tags! If you can't remember a character name, then select a 'series' tag and click for a related tags search, and you'll get a bunch of them!

Thirdly, these new search buttons now work on manage tags launched from multiple thumbnails!

Please give this a go and let me know how you get on with IRL data. The quality of the new search results is better than my old routines, but I need to do a bunch more tuning and optimise their search. Are there too many recommendations (is the tolerance too high?)? Is the sorting good (is the stuff at the top relevant or often just noise?)? Which source tags (e.g. 'page:x') give the worst suggestions?

I'm sufficiently happy with the new performance, particularly with the tag selection, that once this is working nice, I think I'll make it default-on for everyone. Lots of people missed this system, and I always thought it was a bit jank.

twitter gay, thanks for fix
I suppose this means my nitter subs are broken too?

On a different topic, does Hydrus do anything with DeepBooru or are there any extensions for it you know of that I can maybe use to try some autotagging?

Anonymous Board owner 01/29/2023 (Sun) 02:24 Id: 9a2945 [Preview] No.1456 del
Is DeepBooru the same as Deep Danbooru, or the same basic model, so you could switch it in place? Hydrus-dd offers several ways to plug into Deep Danbooru, here:


I was talking with someone else today about how I'd like to do more with this sort of tech in future, just making it easier to work with the sidecars you need or the Client API whatever. I'm sure image-to-text is going to benefit from all this text-to-image tech that's now floating around, especially now it is becoming reasonable to train your own models to do stuff. Hydrus as a big metadata-rich archive seems like it plugs into that tech pretty well!

I had a good week focusing on adding the duplicates system to the Client API. There is nothing else, so today's release is only for advanced users.

Full changelog: https://hydrusnetwork.github.io/hydrus/changelog.html

duplicates with Client API

The main duplicate commands are now available. Obviously check the changelog and Client API help out for full explanation, but the general gist is 1) There is a new 'manage file relationships' permission to gain access, and 2) You can fetch and create relationships, but you can't delete them yet. I will add these commands in the future.

I recently picked up an Minis Forum HM80, and I like it a lot. It's my first computer from this company, and it's my first desktop in about a decade. I've been using laptops for so long before this, but this is a nice change of pace. It's a lot faster than I thought it would be too.

I had a low productivity week, so I am going to skip the release and get more done on Wednesday.

v514 should be on the 25th of January. Thanks everyone!


For Client API developers, I am clearing out some obsolete calls and data structures in v514! Since we have a spare week, please review the pending breaking changes:

* '/add_tags/get_tag_services' is removed! use '/get_services' instead!
* 'hide_service_names_tags', previously made default true, is removed and its data structure 'service_names_to_statuses_to_display_tags' is also gone! move to the new 'tags' structure.
* 'hide_service_keys_tags' is now default true. it will be removed in 4 weeks or so. same deal as with 'service_names_to_statuses_to_display_tags'--move to 'tags'
* 'system_inbox' and 'system_archive' are removed from '/get_files/search_files'! just use 'system:inbox/archive' in the tags list

I had a good week doing one thing. The Client API now supports the main duplicates commands, fetching current file relationships and the main filter workflows, and then setting basic file relationships back again.
