The SlideShow PHP class gets a list of images from the local filesystem or from a remote web site.
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.
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.
There are two ways to install the package:
- Download the zip file from http://github.com/bartonlp/slideshow. Extract the files.
- 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.
There are several example files:
'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.
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 '.
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 <head> section.
