``django-vernissage`` is a reusable gallery app for django to be used
together with django-filer. It allows to create image galleries from
django-filer image files.
1. Defaults for easy usage with twitter bootstrap's carousels
2. Drag-and-drop ordering of the images in a gallery
3. Includes ready to use [django-cms](https://www.django-cms.org/en/) plugin
Vernissage has been developed and tested with django 1.6. Usage with
1.7 should be pretty straightforward, but hasn't been tested yet.
You'll probably be asked to generate the new-style migrations, and
that should be it. If you want to do the migration work, please send a
to provide drag-and-drop sorting for the images in a gallery.

pip install django-vernissage

If you want to use the django-cms plugin, it is possible that you
won't want the Vernissage models appearing in the admin. If so, set

The versioing is as follows: ``<major>.<minor>.<patch>``

Changes in ``minor`` usually mean new features, but no
backwards-incompatible changes. Upgrade between minor versions might
require database migrations.
Changes in ``major`` include some API changes or changes that are for
some other reason backwards-incompatible or require some manual
intervention beyond just running ``migrate`` to upgrade from.
Finally, the first drafts versions will be labeled ``0.x.y`` until
such time when the websites this app has been originally developed for
finally get stabilized. Once we have something live, version ``1.0.0``
will be released whether that means backwards-incompatibility or not.
Until such time, we expect rapid development and API evolution, so if
you're using this before v1 please pay attention.
