Photoswipe Gallery Sample

Making a Gallery

Beautiful Hugo adds a few custom shortcodes created by Li-Wen Yip and Gert-Jan van den Berg for making galleries with PhotoSwipe .


The above gallery was created using the following shortcodes:

{{< gallery caption-effect="fade" >}}
  {{< figure thumb="-thumb" link="/img/hexagon.jpg" >}}
  {{< figure thumb="-thumb" link="/img/sphere.jpg" caption="Sphere" >}}
  {{< figure thumb="-thumb" link="/img/triangle.jpg" caption="Triangle" alt="This is a long comment about a triangle" >}}
{{< /gallery >}}


For full details please see the hugo-easy-gallery GitHub page. Basic usages from above are:

  • Create a gallery with open and close tags {{< gallery >}} and {{< /gallery >}}
  • {{< figure src="image.jpg" >}} will use image.jpg for thumbnail and lightbox
  • {{< figure src="thumb.jpg" link="image.jpg" >}} will use thumb.jpg for thumbnail and image.jpg for lightbox
  • {{< figure thumb="-small" link="image.jpg" >}} will use image-small.jpg for thumbnail and image.jpg for lightbox
  • All the features/parameters of Hugo’s built-in figure shortcode work as normal, i.e. src, link, title, caption, class, attr (attribution), attrlink, alt
  • {{< gallery caption-effect="fade" >}} will fade in captions for all figures in this gallery instead of the default slide-up behavior
  • Many gallery styles for captions and hover effects exist; view the hugo-easy-gallery GitHub for all options
  • Note that this theme will load the photoswipe gallery theme and scripts by default, no need to load photoswipe on your individual pages
