dirshare 0.8



**dirshare** is a HTTP WSGI Python application to rapidly share images within
a specific root path, leverages thumbnail caching, instantaneous image
resizing, file meta data extraction and zip file creation.

The motivation to create this application is that occasionally I must browse a
large collection of photos, WITHOUT a dedicated server software, loading of
full sized images or modifying original files.

- Setuptools (for installing dirshare and its Python dependencies)
- (optional) Access to a mongo database server

**Note** Pillow library uses system libraries to decode specific type of files.
If you get "IOError: decoder XXX not available" while loading some images,
you're probably missing some libraries (ex. libjpeg).

From PyPI:
> pip install dirshare

> python install
