For you the sun will be shining

Thanks to the people who commented on my post about a decent apt cacher, it was good to see that I'm not alone.

Thanks to RobertH for recommending the new tool acng - I've not used it yet, instead I gave it a quick look and reported a potentially serious bug. Hopefully that'll be fixed in the next release.

In the meantime apt-cacher actually appears to be holding up quite nicely and the nice HTML report it generates is cute!

Now onto the next challenge...

I would like some kind of tool to convert a random hierarchy of images (jpg) into a small gallery. (Utterly non-dynamic - but ideally with tagging support and RSS feeds).

There seem to be a plethora of options to the problem, suprisingly many of them involving Python ..

If anybody has any pointers I'd appreciate a link.

For reference my current galleries tend to look like this - warning fluffy animals!

Using "apt-cache search static gallery" I find three programs:

bins - Very heavyweight. Unattractive.

photon - Pretty. Requires GIMP for creating thumbnails - unsuitable for my lightweight webhost.

jigl - Looks great. Does 90% of what I want - specifically misses tags & rss.
