distribusi is a content management system for the web that produces static
index pages based on folders in the filesystem. It is inspired by the automatic
index functions featured in several web servers. It works by traversing the
file system and directory hierarchy to automatically list all the files in the
directory and providing them with html classes and tags for easy styling.
While a Pip install will pull in Python dependencies, you might need system
dependencies. This package requires two underlying packages. Those are
pillow. Here are the installation documentation for those
$ pip install --user distribusi
Note: check if the path of your local bin is added to your shell path (otherwise you cannot run distribusi from the shell directly).
To check where distribusi is installed:
$ find * | grep distribusi
Add local bin to the $PATH variable:
Get help with:
$ distribusi --help
Make a distribusi of your home folder:
$ distribusi -d ~/
You will find that you now have an
index.html in every folder.
Create a quick gallery for the web:
$ distribusi -d /path/to/my/photos -t
This creates an
base64 encoded thumbnails.
Generate verbose output:
$ distribusi -v
Make an index of the archive page:
$ distribusi -d /var/www/archive/my_event -t -v
Install Pipenv and then run:
$ pipenv install --dev $ pipenv run pip install -e . $ pipenv run distribusi --help
You'll need a PyPi account and to be added as a maintainer.
