Watch the sky (simple python ftp script)
So you got the raspberry and the camera board.
With a cronjob you can let it take pictures every few seconds or hour and do something with it. Might be a timelaps video or send it to twitter. In this case I added a simple script to the “RasBotPi” so it can send a picture every hour to this website.
a Simple script will capture a jpg and then send it to this website with python and its ftp library.
# Ftp the image to other website
sftp = ftplib.FTP('webserver.com','username','password') # Connect to server
fp = open('/home/username/projects/webcam/webcam.jpg','rb') # file to send to server
sftp.storbinary('STOR /httpdocs/webcam.jpg', fp) # SStore the file on the server
fp.close() # Close
Here an example of the snapshot that the camera board takes..
