Bizou - a (french) KISS php image gallery
Cette page en français
Bizou is a very simple image gallery written in PHP following the KISS principle.
Bizou is free software released under the GPLv3 license.
(Bizou is a variant of "bisou", a french word for a kiss.)
Required: a web server with PHP5 and the GD extension.
- Untar the archive to your web directory
- Copy some files in the images/ directory
- For thumbnails, make sure the web server has write access on the data/ directory (probably not needed for FTP installs)
- Try it, have fun!
# And for commandline fans like me...
tar -xzvf bizou_vXX.tar.gz
# allow we server to write in data dir
chgrp www-data bizou/data/
chmod g+w bizou/data/
- No more "progess page" when generating thumbs, images are just displayed one by one when generated
- Config option setting the umask for group writeable files by default (usefull if your install user is different from www user)
- A css style for Bizou is now available. Thanks to Titi. See in the plugins section.
- Display a progress page when generating thumbs
- Exported templates in external template.php files
- Bugfix: next image not preloaded for images in the images/ root (because of a double slash in URL)
- The tar plugin
- Fixed a bug when operating at the top web directory. Thanks to pilau.
- Added page title, some credit.. This features are turning into a changelog.
- Keyboard navigation in image viewer
- Plugins support (minimalist API to start, contact me if you need to add something)
- CSS theme support via plugins
- Image Viewer is now a 'viewer' plugin
To install a plugin, just drop it in the plugins/ directory.
Included by default, just delete the directory if you don't need it.
A css style for Bizou. Many thanks to Titi for that.
Demo - Download
Download an entire directory with tar streaming. Very fast, and no need for extra space. You can enable recursion by editing tar.php.
# commandline fans, downloading a directory becomes as simple as:
wget -O- http://www.positon.org/bizou/bizoufull/plugins/tar/tar.php/2008%20Corse | tar -xvf -

Thanks Felix for his zip download patch (v1.1 only), leading me to the idea of plugins.
