A Dead-Simple Slideshow

— SjG @ 12:30 pm

I have tens of thousands of photos I’ve taken over the years.

I think some of these photos are pretty good, but most are languishing unseen on random hard drives.

To share them, I’ve been a member of Flickr, I’ve posted on the late lamented Twitter, and I post some onto Mastodon. I’ve also created numerous gallery applications/server scripts/web sites (e.g., Statgal), but they’ve generally been clumsy or take too much work to maintain. So I’ve been working on a dumb PHP/JavaScript slideshow thing that will scan directories, cache the details, etc.

Here’s introducing PhotoSpinner. It’s a quick’n’dirty script to provide photos. It’s very simple and allows me to publish categories of pictures without a lot of effort. Source code’s at Codeberg.
