- does it have to be a web server? I would think just using the file
manager with image preview would be good.
- Last time I did this (many years ago) I just used fancy indexing on
straight apache... but no thumbnails that way.
fwiw: I just did apt search gallery and the following looked promising...
have not used:
fgallery/bionic,bionic 1.8.2-2 all
lazygal/bionic,bionic 0.9.1-1 all
static web gallery generator
libapache-gallery-perl/bionic,bionic 1.0.2-5 all
Apache module to create image galleries on-the-fly
