unicorn

A Dropbox gallery for your website. More information can be obtained here:

Follow those instructions to setup the galery.

Digital Photoframe

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.

Technical Requirements

Its quiet easy if you already have a Website where you can run the gallery and create mail accounts

Email Account

Dedicated Mail Account to retrieve the Images.

Cronjob

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.
