A jekyll website for photographers
- Easy setup and you get a site of your own for free.
- To add new pictures, you need to just upload them. No code changes required.
- This I like the most, you get to see EXIF data like aperture, shutter speed, iso etc when you click on any image automagically.
If you know a tad about tech and love taking pictures then this open-source project may help you setup a website to showcase all your creations without effort. And not just that, with this you need not pay a single dime to host your website as it's hosted by GitHub for free.
Just follow the below steps and your website would be live in no time:
- Fork this repo by hitting the
Forkbutton at the top right corner.
- Enable github pages from the repo settings.
- Upload your pictures to
images/thumbsdirectory. You can do that on github.com itself or you can clone and push the images to your repo.
- Add your own custom domain in
CNAMEfile or just remove the file if you don't own a domain. You can use the default domain that github provides.
- And that's it, your website is set. To view, go to photography.ramswaroop.me (or whatever you have in the CNAME file) and if you don't have one, you can go to yourusername.github.io/photography
And of course, you don't want my name at the bottom to show up. You can change it in
_config.yml file as well as few other settings like your google analytics etc.
- Fork and then clone the project to your computer
- Go inside the project
$ cd photography
- Install all dependencies by
$ npm install
- Copy all your pictures (possibly jpg, the largest size available, straight from your camera) and put it inside
$ gulpto resize the images and to generate thumbnails automatically
- Push your changes to github.com by
$ git commit -am "a nice commit message"and then
$ git push origin master
