Lazygal is another static web gallery generator written in Python

lazygal Lazygal is another static web gallery generator written in Python. It is command line based, uses reusable engine and is lazy - it regenerates only parts that have to be regenerated.

There is support for many interesting features like subgalleries, EXIF information, theming and custom folder meta data. Included themes are pure XHTML + CSS.

It can be summed up by the following features :

  • Commande line based (thus scriptable).
  • Reusable engine (to make a GUI for instance).
  • Lazy : do not build what's already there.
  • Recursive : generates subgalleries.
  • Does not change your original pictures directories (the source argument).
  • Tells you what should not be in your generated directories (and delete it if you want to).
  • Can generate multiple sizes to browse pictures according to your screen.
  • Sort pictures in the same directory by EXIF date if available, else file modification time.
  • Theming.
  • XHTML and CSS compliance for provided themes.
  • Support for per folder meta data.
  • RSS feed generation for your album updates.
  • Optional generation of ZIP archives of original pictures.
  • Output internationalization.
  • Optional breaking of big galleries (directories) on multiple pages.
  • Multiple sorting options for pictures and galleries.

A huge gallery shows Lazygal in action : Album. Another example using album images: Photos from Japan.
