pixindex — Make/Upload Photos Page+Zipfile

This small Python 3.X program generates an HTML page to view a folder of images — inline in the page, by links in the page, and by an automatically created and linked zipfile of the photos — and then transfers the photos and generated zipfile and HTML page to a site folder by FTP.

This program's page is relatively basic; its HTML can be enhanced arbitrarily by editing the script, and the newer thumbspage program is a more complete gallery solution. Still, this is a prime example of the sorts of tactical roles that Python excels at, in addition to its larger-scale strategic roles.


See the main script's docstring and other items below for usage details.
