I'd like to share photos from my Lightroom catalog on a home network via a web server. Browsers can only understand JPGs, but my photos are mostly in RAW. I'd like to find a solution where I don't have to export my whole catalog as JPGs and update the exported copy whenever I add new photos or change existing ones.
I'm happy to write new software to do this. If Lightroom has a way to export individual photos from the command line, I could write a web server that takes requests for file.jpg, exports it on-demand from the RAW foo.dng, and returns the JPG version. That way, the file served would always be up-to-date and it wouldn't require a second copy of the whole catalog.
I don't want to use other libraries for converting RAW files because I want to use the develop settings I've already tweaked in Lightroom.
Is it possible to do this?
Looks like someone else tried to do this last year, with no luck: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/428398
