Distribusi CMS

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 python-magic, and pillow. Here are the installation documentation for those packages:


Using --user or a virtual environment is recommended:

$ pip install --user distribusi


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 index.html with base64 encoded thumbnails.

Generate verbose output:

$ distribusi -v

Make an index of the archive page:

$ distribusi -d /var/www/archive/my_event -t -v

Change It

Install Pipenv and then run:

$ pipenv install --dev
$ pipenv run pip install -e .
$ pipenv run distribusi --help

Release It

$ make publish
