django-photo-albums / README

Full commit

django-photo-albums is a pluggable django image gallery app.

Image galleries can be attached to any Django model. And thanks to
django 1.1 url namespaces it is possible to have multiple 'albums' app
instances (for example, for different models) that use different sets of
templates, different permission rules, have dedicated integration test suites
and are available from different urls.

Each image gallery provide functionality for image viewing, editing,
uploading, uploading entire albums in one zip file, reordering,
marking/unmarking as main and deleting.

django-photo-albums is an application based on
django-generic-images (
django-photo-albums requires Django >= 1.1 (or svn version with
url namespaces), setuptools for installation, django-annoying for some utils and
django-generic-images for image management and advanced admin image uploader.
django-generic-images and django-annoying will be installed automatically if
you install django-photo-albums via easy_install  or pip.

django-photo-albums does not provide any thumbnail creation solution because
there are external django apps (such as sorl-thumbnail) that would do this

Testing if app instance is integrated correctly (at least that templates
don't raise exceptions) is easy because base class for integration testcases
is provided.
