sigal 0.6.0

Simple static gallery generator

Travis-ci: continuous integration status.

Sigal is yet another simple static gallery generator. It's written in Python and it allows to build a static gallery of images with the following features:

  • Process directories recursively.
  • Generate HTML pages using jinja2 templates.
  • Relative links for a portable output.
  • Support themes, videos, EXIF tags, zip download.
  • Parallel processing.
  • MIT licensed.

The idea behind Sigal is to ease the use of the javascript librairies like galleria. These librairies do a great job to display the images, Sigal does what is missing: resize images, create thumbnails, generate html pages.

Sigal is compatible with Python 2.7 and 3.3.
