Do you think we are missing an alternative of Fussel or a related project?
Fussel is under active development! Recently the project hit a snag when the main caroussel library that fussel is based on was abandoned (https://github.com/jossmac/react-images). I am in the process of attempting to replace it (possibly with: https://github.com/akiran/react-slick), hence the lack of more minor updates recently. I have no timelines as this is a side project for me and I have had limited free time lately but rest assured fussel is still being actively improved.
Fussel is a static photo gallery generator. It can build a simple static photo gallery site with nothing but a directory full of photos.
Features and Properties:
- Absolutely no server-side code to worry about once deployed
- Builds special "Person" gallery for people found in XMP face tags.
- Adds watermarks
- Mobile friendly
- Python 3
- Node + Yarn
pip install -r requirements.txt
.envto your needs (minimal change is to set INPUT_PATH)
The folder you point INPUT_PATH at, must have albums in subfolders inside it with the folder names as the name of the albums you want in the gallery. Any further-nested folders will be ignored.
If you have your .env setup with:
INPUT_PATH = /home/user/Photos/gallery
Then that path should look like this:
/home/user/Photos/gallery: - Album 1 - Album 2 - Album 3 - ...
Generate your site
Run the following script to generate your site into
Host your site
Point your web server at
web/build or copy/upload the
web/build folder to your web host HTTP root.
python -m http.server --directory web/build(go to localhost:8000 in browser)
If you don't want to fuss with anything and would like to use docker instead fo generate your site...
/my-input-folderis the absolute path to top-level photo folder
/my-output-folderis the absolute path to where you want the generated site written to
Note: The two -e env variables PGID and PUID tells the container what to set the output folder permissions to once done. Otherwise it is set to root permissions
docker run \ -e PGID=$(id -g) \ -e PUID=$(id -u) \ -v /my-input-folder:/input:ro \ -v /my-output-folder:/fussel/web/build \ cbenning/fussel:latest
You can provide any value found in the .env.sample file in a docker env variable using
docker run \ -e PGID=$(id -g) \ -e PUID=$(id -u) \ -v /my-input-folder:/input:ro \ -v /my-output-folder:/fussel/web/build \ -e HTTP_ROOT=/my/alternate/path \ -e WATERMARK_ENABLE=false \ cbenning/fussel:latest
Once complete you can upload the output folder to your webserver, or see what it looks like with
python -m http.server --directory /my-output-folder
