Cover Thumbnailer

This repository is the continuation of the Bazaar / Launchpad one. This is legacy code that have not been maintained for years, so it may not work out of the box and fixes can take time to be released.

Cover thumbnailer is a small Python script which displays music album covers in Nautilus, preview of pictures which are in a folder and more.

The script fits in Nautilus like any other thumbnailer of the GNOME thumbnail factory; so you don't have to run it manually to generate thumbnails.
