Photopile Web Part Overview

The photopile-web-part project is a SharePoint web part built using the SharePoint Framework (SPFx). This Web Part uses the great Photopile.Js created by Brian W. Howell (a popular jquery script) as a client side web part for SharePoint.

With this Web Part, you can display the photos contained in a SharePoint Pictures Library as a cool image gallery that simulates a pile of photos scattered about on a surface. Thumbnail clicks remove photos from the pile, (enlarging them as if being picked up by the user), and once in view a secondary click returns the photo to the pile.

It is able to:

  • List Picture Libs contained in the current SharePoint web site
  • List all the pictures in the selected List
