sol-photos  -  photos and galleries
===================================

===================================


This is a photo and gallery app for django. It is based on the following
components/apps:

* django-imagekit (image handling)
* sol-transbase (multilingual support for database layer)
* jquery (for admin slider widget and slimbox)
* slimbox (optional - for showing large images on pages)
* simpleviewer (the gallery flash component)

and of-coarse:

* django >= 1.02
* python 2.5.* (may work with other dist., but not tested)


 Installation
===============

1. Download app and install, or just put 'photos' dir on your path.
2. Copy contents of 'photos/media' dir into your static media dir, lets call
   it 'staticmedia'.
3. Download simpleviewer, and copy 'viewer.swf' to 'staticmedia/images' dir.
4. To use 'swfobject.js' (v1.5) supplied with simpleviewer, copy it to 'staticmedia/images'.
   I recommend on using a newer version, which can be linked directly to swfobject
   library on google (search for it). The 'gallery_detail.html' template shows how to
   embed simpleviewer using the newer swfobject.
5. don't forget to link to whichever 'swfobject.js' you are using!


   Use
==========

This app is ready to be managed in django admin. Using the slider widget,
photos can be added/removed to/from a gallery with a single click.
You have an option to upload a set of images into a gallery with a ZIP file.
You can tweak any of the simpleviewer xml options in the admin, or the html
loading options.
See included example project.
