The SlideShow PHP class gets a list of images from the local filesystem or from a remote web site.

A JavaScript class displays the images collected by the PHP class.

History

This was originally written in 2008. This version (April 2015) is a rewrite of that code. I have upgraded the code to use more recent inovation.

Disclaimer

I have not tried any of this with IE on any version of Windows. I don't use MS-Windows, I don't like MS-Window, and I don't have MS-Windows. I have always hated that OS for what I think are very good reasons.

I use Linux Mint which evolved from Ubuntu via Debian. I have not tested this package on any OS that has not evolved from Debian.

Install

There are two ways to install the package:

  1. Download the zip file from http://github.com/bartonlp/slideshow. Extract the files.
  2. Use 'composer' (https://getcomposer.org/download/):
    If you don't have composer do:
    curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
    
    Or if you don't have curl:
    
    php -r "readfile('https://getcomposer.org/installer');" | php After composer is downloaded move the 'composer.phar' to '/usr/local/bin/composer' and make sure it is executable.

To install the SlideShow make a project directory as follows:

mkdir myproject
cd myproject
composer require bartonlp/slideshow:dev-master

The package is under the 'vendor/bartonlp/slideshow' directory. You can run the examples from there or copy them to your project root.

Examples

There are several example files:

  • photos-prototype.html
  • photos-jquery.html
  • photos-jquery.php
  • carousel.html

'photos-prototype.html' uses the 'prototype1.7.2.js' version of the 'prototype' JavaScript framework (http://http://prototypejs.org/).

'photos-jquery.html' uses the jQuery JavaScript framework (http://jquery.com) via a CDN (Content Delivery Network).

'photos-jquery.php' is like the above HTML but instantiates the class differently.

'carousel.html' is an adaptation of Harry Armadillo (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=58814) nice program. Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code etc.

There are two versions of the JavaScript SlideShow class, one for 'prototype' and one for 'jQuery'.

To install this demo do a 'tar xvzf SlideShow.tar.gz' in the 'Document Root' of the web server or in a sub-directory. The tar will create a 'photosTest' directory and 'photosTest/images'. If you have already untared this demo some place else before you read this README you can just do a 'mv photosTest <Docuement Root>'.

Configure the Examples

You may need to configure the 'photos-xxx.html' files for your filesystem. At the beginning of these files there are several statements in the &lt;head&gt; section.
