A Dropbox gallery for your website. More information can be obtained here:
Follow those instructions to setup the galery.
I've forked the unicorn repository in order to create a digital photoframe / digitaler bilderrahmen (de). My requirement was to be able to send photos by email and get them imported into the galery. The story behind that is that i would like to give my family the chance to also send pictures by mail to the galery. The Galery is displayed on an old Tablet / iPad which i would like to give to my grandparents as a christmas present.
I havent found any App in the AppStore that could provide such a functionality. Also i wanted to be able to store the data in my own cloud.
Advantages of the Solution
- You can update the pictures using Dropbox.
- Also your family can send pictures by email to a dedicated adress.
- No reason to update the images on the iPad. The galery is auto refreshing so my grandparents do not need to press any button.
Its quiet easy if you already have a Website where you can run the gallery and create mail accounts
Dedicated Mail Account to retrieve the Images.
The "mail2dropbox.php" should be executed via Cronjob to import the mails on a frequent basis. It also does the housekeeping and moves old items to a different folder.
