Auto Generating Gallery
This is build with the awesome php framework Laravel 4.
Pretty, simple and easy gallery.
- Upload albumfolder via ftp

Configure the database settings in
And migrate the database with:
Change configuration of the gallery in
app/config/filegallery.php, eg. set the Facebook App id for the commenting system and Google analytics id.

The foldername will be used as the albumname, and the folders will be renamed to
a more webfriendly name (strip special characers and replace spaces with dashes).
Images will be created from the imagefiles in the album folders. Don't worry about the names they will be renamed to more webfriendly names (strip special characers and replace spaces with dashes).

To avoid starting import before you have all the files uploaded and ready,
create an empty *.txt file named
ready.txt to the
uploads folder when you

To start the import, make sure you have uploaded the files and created the
ready-file. Then go to the route
/import, eg. mywebgallery.com/import.
It will be working some time depending on the size of the images you want to import ;)
