There are a lot of Raspberry Pi camera projects out there that capture photos. Obviously. I’ve found a nice PHP script that lets you view these photos directly from the Pi via a web browser. The script is called “Single File PHP Gallery” and it’s free.
Single File PHP Gallery is a web gallery in one single PHP file created by Kenny Svalgaard. All you have to do is copy the script to any directory containing images to make a gallery. This makes it perfect for quickly adding some fantastic functionality to your Pi camera projects with a minimum of effort. Why spend days writing your own image presentation system when you can do it it 5 minutes?
Sub directories are treated as sub galleries and the script can generate thumbnails for images and directories automatically.
Single File PHP Gallery does not require any configuration or programming skills to use. You just drop the file into your photo directory and you are ready to go. The only requirements are that your Pi is running a web-server and your photos are in a directory visible to that server.
Don’t worry. That’s easy to setup if you haven’t already and it will be explained below.
