Base gallery for plone with external services support

Project description


This add-on contains core controller to build gallery addons for Plone.

The goals are:

  • Have a simple photo fetchers component in one API

  • Support many photos providers (picasa, flickr, …)

  • Stay as simple as possible

How to install

This addon can be installed as any other addon. Please follow the official documentation.

Have an idea? Found a bug? Let us know by opening a support ticket.

State of the current master on github by travis-ci:

Upgrade from 1.X

Note: for those who came from 1.X this addon dont provide UX anymore. This addon is now intended to integrator. Please consider use collective.galleria as a great gallery viewer for Plone.

Note that Galleriffic is not maintained. This is one of the reason why I have removed UX from this package. jQuery gallery appear and disapear every day.

To cleanup you plonesite from 1.X, you can call as administrator or use the profile ‘zclean’ which remove galleriffic from your javascript registry.

Components (Backend)


  • No custom content type, only views

  • Works with lots of photos (is developed to work with +300 photos)

  • Ramcache setup with a default key to one hours + modification date

  • Works with Folder, Topic and Link content types

  • picasaweb and flickr support.

  • facebook support.

  • I18N: english, french, german and italian are available use zope.components to provide as much reusable components as possible.

First we have photo resources. Plone already manage this for you:

  • Folder can contains Image

  • Topic can be criterized to list only Image content type

  • Link can be sources of photos throw and services.

Next you have the main component: IGallery. This interface is implemented at two levels:

  • As named adapter over IATLink to get photos from picasaweb or flickr or facebook.

  • As browserview to control the resource (@@gallery)

Folder & Image

Folder and Image content type can be used to build a gallery. Add a folder and then add every images in it. Once its done come up to the folder and choose ‘Gallery view’ in the display drop down menu and voila.

The folder gallery component query the portal_catalog and adapts brains to IPhoto.

Topic & Image

Topic can be used to build a gallery. Add a topic and add criteria on the Type to select only Image. Next choose the ‘Gallery view’ in the drop down menu and voila.

The topic gallery component use the topic’s queryCatalog method to get brains, then they are adapted to IPhoto


You have some examples of addons based on this one:

  • collective.galleria

  • collective.galleriffic

  • collective.fancyboxgallery

  • collective.highslide

  • collective.portlet.fancyboxgallery

Extra addons to use with

  • collective.quickupload

  • Products.ImageEditor

You want more ?

The picasaweb and flickr services let you embed a flash slideshow to display your photos. Views are already available to use those services:

  • @@gallery-picasaweb-slideshow

  • @@gallery-flickr-slideshow

But they are not integrated in the Plone UI.
