The Holmes Web, is a good way to make a service to create this images for you using the web, for example, varius websites can use the same holmes web to find images in images using the http protocol.


The Holmes web is a php application created using silex, and very easy to start.

After download is done, rename your config.yaml.default to config.yaml and configure like this


holmes-binaries: 'C:\\java\\holmes.jar' //default jar location in your system

default-nest-image: localhost //not implemented yet

result-web-dir: 'http://localhost/holmes-web/images/matches/' //url to access matches folder from browser

debug: true //silex debug boolean


after the installation is done, you can send the image and parameters using a similar url
