Angular 2 Image Gallery
----> compatible with Angular 8+ <----
Responsive image gallery designed for high resolution images.
The project consists of a gallery, a viewer and a script for image preparation.
Before using the gallery, you have to process all of your images that will be part of your gallery with the convert script. The processed images will be stored to your applications assets or, if you wish, at a remote location. During runtime everything runs client-side and there is no separate server-side communication involved. The viewer takes care an optimal image quality is served based on the screen resolution.
How to use the gallery in your project
Install graphicsmagick: http://www.graphicsmagick.org/README.html#installation
Embed in your project
1. Install angular2-image-gallery
npm install angular2-image-gallery --save npm install hammerjs --save
2. Import angular2-image-gallery in your Angular module
imports: [ Angular2ImageGalleryModule ],
3. Add hammer.js for support of mobile devices
Add the following line to your main.ts file:
4. Run convert script
node node_modules/angular2-image-gallery/convert.js <path/to/your/images>
Add a flag to define the order of the images inside the gallery
-n sort by file name (default)
-d sort chronologically by the original creation time (e.g. for coverages of a wedding)
-c sort by primary image color
Additional optional parameter to support multiple galleries. Add it if you want to put your images into a separate gallery.
5. Embed gallery in your template
<gallery [flexBorderSize]="3" [flexImageSize]="7" [galleryName]="'yourGalleryName'" [maxRowsPerPage]="100" (viewerChange)="yourNotificationFunction($event)"> </gallery>
All parameters are optional. You may play around on the demo site to find out what parameters suit your needs.
The viewerChange event notifies you when the viewer component gets opened or closed.
That's it, start your application and have a look!
