This is a little slideshow app, designed mainly to turn a tablet into a photoframe.

It’s entirely HTML and JS, using jQuery Mobile – so it should work on any browser supported by jQuery Mobile.

Currently it connects to hardcoded Picasa accounts and fetches the list of all photos in all albums and then
chooses and displays a photo at random.

The photo list is saved to localStorage, so it doesn’t need to fetch it everytime.

Features I’m planning to add quite soon:

  • Configure picasa accounts (and save in localStorage) – DONE
  • Allow accounts to be set via URL params.
  • Remove my hardcoded accounts.
  • Choose which albums/accounts to pick photos from – DONE
  • Configure the delay between slides (currently hardcoded to 5 secs).

Future features:

  • Pause, skip forward/backwards – using touch/swipe gestures
  • Show photo info
  • Support for alternative sites (eg. Flickr, Facebook, etc)
