Bizou - A (french) KISS php image gallery

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.)

Features

Install

Required: a web server with PHP5 and the GD extension.
  1. Untar the archive to your web directory
  2. Copy some files in the images/ directory
  3. For thumbnails, make sure the web server has write access on the data/ directory (probably not needed for FTP installs)
  4. Try it, have fun!
# And for commandline fans like me...
wget www.positon.org/bizou/bizou_vXX.tar.gz
tar -xzvf bizou_vXX.tar.gz
# allow we server to write in data dir
chgrp www-data bizou/data/
chmod g+w bizou/data/

viewer

Enabled by default. An image viewer with prev/next buttons, keyboard navigation and next image preloading.
