A quick image gallery for Hugo 

Here's a quick image gallery that can read a folder and generate a quick gallery.

It will try to load all JPG files in the provided path, and assumes that every image has a thumbnail file that has the -thumb.EXT extension. Ex: for a file 'blah.jpg', it would assume there would also be a 'blah-thumb.jpg'.

Drop this into layouts/shortcodes/foldergallery.html:

Once that's done add this javascript to your installation somewhere:

<script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/fancybox/3.4.0/jquery.fancybox.min.js"></script>

The shortcode assumes that galleries are stored in folders under the /static path.

Here's an example of how to use it:

{{< foldergallery src="images/galleries/2015/" >}}

Generating thumbnails 

Here's how I do it in Linux (might also work on Mac with homebrew). First, install imagemagick. I store my galleries under static/images/galleries/<GALLERYNAME>. To create thumbnails for all my galleries:

for i in `find static/images/galleries -type f ! -name "*-thumb.jpg" -name "*.jpg"`; do echo $i; if [ -f ${i%.*}-thumb.jpg ]; then continue; fi; convert $i -thumbnail 100x100 ${i%.*}-thumb.jpg; done

Repeat this for each file format you want thumbnails for (this will only convert jpegs).
