Mikuru is an extremely simple and easy to use static image gallery generator. Features:
- Generates static HTML and image files.
- Easy to use and easy to set up.
- No dependencies on PHP, databases or other dynamic software.
- The generated gallery has a simple, to the point, quick and easy to user interface.
I wrote after once having taken several hundred pictures and not feeling like setting up a full blown gallery system such as Gallery.
Run the following command:
gem install FooBarWidget-mikuru -s http://gems.github.com
Mikuru requires RMagick.
How does it work?
You put a bunch of pictures in a folder, run Mikuru, and it'll generate an 'index.html' as well as a set of thumbnails. There are no other generated files. Simply upload index.html, the thumbnails and the pictures to a web server, and you're ready to go.
Here’s an example usage session:
$ ls DSCN001.JPG DSCN002.JPG DSCN003.JPG DSCN004.JPG DSCN005.JPG DSCN006.JPG $ mikuru MKDIR thumbnails WRITE thumbnails/DSCN001.JPG WRITE thumbnails/DSCN002.JPG WRITE thumbnails/DSCN003.JPG WRITE thumbnails/DSCN004.JPG WRITE thumbnails/DSCN005.JPG WRITE thumbnails/DSCN006.JPG WRITE index.html $ scp -r * www.somehost.com:public_html/my_gallery/
