|ThumbHTML v2.9 - CONSOLE MODE|
In response to a user request, a command-line version of ThumbHTML has now been developed. The idea is that the main settings are created in the GUI version of the program, and then the program can be run, unattended, in console mode, applying pre-determined settings to create many albums automatically.
It reads ThumbHTML.ini to determine the profile to use, e.g. Default.thm. This in turn contains most of the other settings required, including the stylesheet and template to use for the colours and layout of the web pages. The sizes of the thumbnails and main pictures are stored in batch_settings.txt, which can be modified using the menu in the GUI program.
Some of the settings can be modified in the console mode program using command line switches. In fact, two of these must be set in this way since the GUI program does not (currently) save them. These are:
/title (the title used in the web pages)
/nss (a slide show is included by default - if you do not want one, add /nss to the command line.)
Here is a list of the command line switches that are currently available:
So, for example, you can check what the program would do using:
You should note that this software is under development. It is likely to contain bugs, and has not been as extensively tested as the ThumbHTML GUI program. Please contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Also, let me know of any additional command-line switches that you would find useful!
