12:02 - llgal 0.13.6 is out, with lots of bugfixes
I just released llgal 0.13.6. This is probably the most-bug-fixing release I have done so far. It is surely worth upgrading for almost everybody.
- Choose which photos you want in your gallery and store them in one directory (with eventually some sub-directories).
- Run the following command line to generate a captions file for all photos in all subdirectories, with section's separators.
llgal --gc --Pall --Ps
- Edit the captions file in .llgal/captions to move photos, remove stuff if you want, add nice captions, ... like the captions of my vacation's gallery.
- Run llgal (no options required this time) to generate the gallery using the captions file.
I actually used a couple more options to get this layout. You may pass lots of options on the command line. But, if you don't want to type these options again everytime you regenerate the gallery (for instance after fixing a typo in the captions), you might want to use a configuration file instead, such as the configuration file for my vacation's gallery If you don't know the name of the options to write in the config file, don't worry, just do the following to generate the config file once:
llgal <your command line options> --gencfg local
Then, feel free to edit .llgal/llgalrc to change the layout, llgal with automatically use this configuration file next time it is run.
There are a lot of other options, for instance to choose the size of the thumbnails in the index, limit the size of the photos in the slides, create hierarchical sets of galleries, include or type of files or links, ...
llgal is already available in Debian and Gentoo repositories, and will probably run fine on all Linux (and even some *BSD) distributions as long as the required Perl modules are available.
