Projects / xSite


xSite generates static XHTML and CSS Web albums from image directories, making use of JPEG/EXIF comments in the images instead of external databases. It will also generate an RSS 2.0 feed for the resulting album. xSite is not a photo management tool by itself, so must use something else for tagging, editing, and organizing your images. The project's goals are simplicity, ease of use, and standards compliance in the output.

      Release Notes: After a re-run, images that have been deleted from the original directory are now removed from the album as well. Many sanity checks and more meaningful error messages are now used. A bug which caused Internet Explorer not to show images properly has been fixed. An RSS generation bug (which occurred when re-indexing an unmodified old album) has been fixed. Relative pathnames work now.
