Cézanne quilt

Quilts

Create quilts of your favorite artists.

Here are mine: michaelfester.com/quilts.

Requirements

$ brew install node
$ npm install -g grunt-cli
$ npm install -g bower
$ sudo gem install compass
$ npm install
$ bower install

The setup

All artworks must be in a directory named data/ placed in the project root. It is expected to be of the form:

data/
  cezanne/
    1860 - Landscape with Mill - 23x31cm - Oil on canvas.jpg
    ...
  degas/
    ...

Each artist is defined by an id (cf. Gruntfile.js for an example setup). The folder names should correspond to these ids.

To extract proper metadata for each artwork, the image files are expected to follow the naming convention

YEAR - TITLE - WIDTHxHEIGHTcm - MATERIAL.jpg

Generating the quilts

For each artist, generate the thumbnails by running (replace $(ARTIST_ID) with the id of the artist in question):

$ grunt image_resize:artist --artistId=$(ARTIST_ID)
$ grunt copy:data --artistId=$(ARTIST_ID)

Generate index page and quilt pages for each artist defined in Gruntfile.js

$ grunt && grunt watch
$ open build/index.html

Example gallery

An example gallery, using artworks from WikiPaintings can be found here: michaelfester.com/quilts.
