Grav Astrobin Plugin

This plugin allows you to fetch astrobin images and collections, and display them in page.

The current template make use of featherlight, with the gallery option enabled, to open your images in a slideshow. If you wish to change this behaviour, please modify templates in the templates/partial directory.

Astrobin data is provided via shortcodes, the shortcode-core plugin is therefore another dependency.

Quick usage

First you must configure your Astrobin account, getting an API key and secret. Just click on your username on the right, and in the menu select "API Keys", then request a new key if you don't already have one.

Configure the astrobin plugin (astrobin.yaml in user/config/plugins/, or even better using Grav Admin), with these values:

astrobin_api_key: "<your api key>"
astrobin_api_secret: "<your api secret>"

To test the plugin you need to find the id of the Astrobin daya you want to display. Currently the plugin supports single images, imagesets (albums) and collections. The id can usually be found on the url of the resource you are currently browsing.

Single image

[astrobin-image id=<image-id>]


[astrobin-collection id=<collection-id>]

Advanced Options

Each shortcode accepts additional values beside the id parameter. This is a list for each shortcode.
