This was a weekend experiment
I founded an art management SaaS startup named Yallery in 2006. It was shut down after 3 years—however, I've continued to have ideas about displaying and sharing art collections. One day I may resurrect the art management software startup in a new form. Until then I may continue to play with ideas.
The immediate challenge here was to reduce the amount of traffic returning to the server for each sorting request. Yallery used traditional HTTP GET requests for each sort request. Yallery also displayed artwork metadata within a separate modal overlay, which also relied upon an additional database and page query. Lastly, Yallery was not responsive at all, with a less than intuitive "Google Maps" like click and drag interface containing tiny 80px image tiles within a fixed-size window.
