Bug#879239: RFP: sigal -- Simple Static Gallery Generator

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : sigal
  Version         : 1.3.0
  Upstream Author : Simon Conseil <contact@saimon.org>
* URL             : http://sigal.saimon.org/
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Simple Static Gallery Generator

Sigal is yet another simple static gallery generator. It's written in
Python and it allows to build a static gallery of images with the
following features:

 * Process directories recursively.
 * Generate HTML pages using jinja2 templates.
 * Relative links for a portable output.
 * Support themes, videos, EXIF tags, zip download.
 * Parallel processing.
 * MIT licensed.

The idea behind Sigal is to ease the use of the javascript libraries
like galleria. These libraries do a great job to display the images,
Sigal does what is missing: resize images, create thumbnails, generate
HTML pages.


I am currently using Photofloat for my gallery, but I am thinking of
switching. The upstream isn't very collaborative and I couldn't get
our patches merged. Plus, the design of photofloat is an odd patchwork
of various tools, whereas Sigal is a more unified Python program, with
templating and so on. All dependencies are available in Debian.

I'd be happy to comaintain it with others or maintain this under the
Python team(s). At this point, this is a RFP because I'm not using
Sigal yet, but once I start using it more regularly, I may end up
packaging it myself, at which point I will retitle this to an ITP.
