      From an email by joerg+computer.forrest at pi5.physik.uni-stuttgart.de



      I once did a picture gallery for forrest. You can find the result at

      When the plugin system came around I've started to adapt it to the plugin
      system, but never came around to finish it. It is almost working, but right
      now I don't have the time to finish it, because I have to write my
      PhD-Thesis. I've attached the last version to this e-mail.

      It works like this:
      -Uses the image directory generator from cocoon to get a list of images
      (directory structure is a dir with the following dirs small, big, preview
      (where the pictures can be found in different sizes).
      -gallery.xsl transforms this into valid forrest-html, which is rendered
      according to the selected skin
      -To display one picture gallerybild.xsl is used. The version in the archive
      tries to use a template.xml as template, where only the picture name of the
      picture is substituted and then skinned. This dosn't work yet... So I've also
      included the old version where everything is hardcoded.

      Some more ideas I had for the gallery, is to have a file comment.xml where you
      can put in comments about each picture, which are displayed under the full
      picture (maybe in the format which digikam from KDE writes...so you can edit
      your comments comfortably). Maybe also tooltips on each preview image with
      the size and other information added (would be great if the directory
      generator from cocoon could interpret exif...)

      Do whatever you want with code, I thereby license it under the BSD-License.

      Hope this helps,
