"T'was the night before Christmas and new to the house
was the ability to configure Gallery with only a mouse.
The readme's were crumpled and stuffed behind the tree
obviated by the new JumpBox for Gallery..."
The folks at JumpBox have made it easy to give the gift of Gallery this holiday season. We're happy to announce the immediate availability of the free JumpBox for Gallery 2.3. Download yours here: http://www.jumpbox.com/app/gallery. Read on for the details!
The JumpBox makes it possible to deploy a Gallery web site in minutes on any operating system and avoid tedious setup of the underlying software dependencies. If you are using virtualization on both your desktop and your hosting provider, it allows you to work offline and load up all your photos before publishing to a live production instance. A JumpBox is a special virtual appliance that runs atop virtualization and simplifies the deployment and management of open source server applications.
To get started you'll need to be running some form of virtualization like VMware player or Parallels desktop. You can follow the steps in this tutorial to get started. The whole process in all takes under five minutes.
Another great byproduct of the Gallery JumpBox is our ability to offer instant private trials of Gallery. To see how this works click the orange button on the widget below. In about a minute you'll have your own Gallery 2.3 instance that you can use to experiment and demo to a friend. Trials last for an hour and it's an easy way to show friends how Gallery works.
Spread the gift of photo sharing this holiday season and introduce a friend to Gallery!
