New in Nikola: slideshows (work in progress)

This is nowhere near ready for release, but why not show it?

Nikola can now turn this:

.. slides::

   /galleries/london-paris-2012/P1000198.JPG
   /galleries/london-paris-2012/2P1000235.JPG
   /galleries/london-paris-2012/3_P1000298.JPG

Into this (which will not look good in RSS):

System Message: ERROR/3 (<string>, line 13)

Unknown directive type "slides".

.. slides::

   /galleries/london-paris-2012/P1000198.thumbnail.JPG
   /galleries/london-paris-2012/2P1000235.thumbnail.JPG
   /galleries/london-paris-2012/3_P1000298.thumbnail.JPG

Missing:

  • Customization
  • Support for slideshows that are not made of images
  • Styling

This is based on slidejs which seemed neat, but I am not 100% sure it's the way to go (it seems to look bad if the images are not all the same width, for example).
