Penguin's Web Gallery
pwgallery is yet another web gallery generator. It assumes that
the digital images are kept in the same location forever. User can create
galleries out of those images by selecting images, selecting some basic
editions like rotate and gamma and write the image descriptions. The
pwgallery creates the HTML pages by using user specified templates and
filling in the data.
The main idea behind the pwgallery is that the galleries can be
remade easily using the saved galleries. Thus the user can e.g. change the
HTML page layout on the templates and recreate the gallery with couple
of clicks (or from the command line) for all galleries. The web images are
recreated from the originals with the new paramameters on the fly.
The project started in the year 2000 as a simple Imlib based
C-program called glcthumb.
In 2002 I came up with the main idea that the galleries are saved in
separate files and can be easily remade. I used a lot of perl at that
time and thus I made a perl script for generating the galleries with
ImageMagick's convert command line tool. In 2004 I learned a little bit
about GTK and wrote an ugly application called gwebgal. In June
2006 I started a complete rewrite using techniques called e.g. GTK,
Glade, GnomeVFS, libxml, and ImageMagick. Something working might be
published before the end of the year.
