About the Gallery Server project
Gallery Server is a reusable service layer and OData feed for application galleries. It is used for storing and exposing packages for CMS systems, package managers, etc. Gallery Server functions as the back-end service layer and feed for the
Orchard Gallery and
NuGet projects. You can use Gallery Server to function as the back-end for your own application gallery, or even to setup your own local instance of another gallery like NuGet.
To get started you can download the source code as a zip file, or clone the repository, by visiting the
Source Code tab. Once you've downloaded the source, setup an IIS site or application against the GalleryServer/src/Gallery.Server folder and run the ClickToBuild batch file to build the code. You'll find a ReadMe
text file in the root folder which contains more instructions for setting up the server.
If you have a need for a gallery website of your own and would like to use Gallery Server for storing and exposing a feed of packages, you can get involved by joining the Orchard Gallery mailing list and participating in codeplex.com discussions on this
site. We are also gathering requirements for future phases of the project and we welcome your input. We accept code contributions as patches, under the same general guidelines as the Orchard Gallery project.
