siglican

A static gallery generator plugin for Pelican, based on the Sigal Colorbox/Galleria static site generator.

##How To

  1. Add this package to your Pelican plugins directory.
  2. Add 'siglican' to PLUGINS in pelicanconf.py. Add SIGLICAN_ settings to pelicanconf.py as desired (see "Pelican Configuration Settings" below for a complete list).
  3. Create a siglican directory in your base directory, at the same level as content.
  4. Drag gallery.md from examples to your pelican pages directory and edit it. This gives Pelican a hook into your root gallery.
  5. Drag siglican_gallery.html into your Pelican theme's templates directory. This is the template for your root gallery.
  6. Copy one of the example themes to siglican. This dictates how album pages look. Modify to your heart's content.
  7. Make sure your Pelican theme's base.html template has a 'head' block (e.g., {% block head %}{% endblock %}) defined before </head>. That will give your siglican theme a way to inject gallery-specific css and javascript into your gallery pages.
  8. Create an 'images' folder under 'siglican'. Add album folders along with images and metadata. See examples/images for simple examples or the Sigal documentation for more details.
