Introduction

Mikuru is an extremely simple and easy to use static image gallery generator. Features:

  • Generates static HTML and image files.
  • Easy to use and easy to set up.
  • No dependencies on PHP, databases or other dynamic software.
  • The generated gallery has a simple, to the point, quick and easy to user interface.

I wrote after once having taken several hundred pictures and not feeling like setting up a full blown gallery system such as Gallery.

Installation

Run the following command:

gem install FooBarWidget-mikuru -s http://gems.github.com

Mikuru requires RMagick.

How does it work?

You put a bunch of pictures in a folder, run Mikuru, and it'll generate an 'index.html' as well as a set of thumbnails. There are no other generated files. Simply upload index.html, the thumbnails and the pictures to a web server, and you're ready to go.

Here’s an example usage session:

$ ls
DSCN001.JPG   DSCN002.JPG   DSCN003.JPG
DSCN004.JPG   DSCN005.JPG   DSCN006.JPG
$ mikuru
MKDIR      thumbnails
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN001.JPG
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN002.JPG
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN003.JPG
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN004.JPG
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN005.JPG
WRITE      thumbnails/DSCN006.JPG
WRITE      index.html
$ scp -r * www.somehost.com:public_html/my_gallery/
