  • PHPShow Plus

    By: dravenst (community developer)

    This widget builds on PHPShow created by develephant. This widget displays images that you host on a PHP5 server accessible from the Chumby via URL. The PHP server code automatically finds the images located in the specified server directory and resizes them to properly fit your chumby screen prior to streaming them to your device.

    The widget supports streaming of hundreds of images. This version adds caching, display for 800x600 and 860x480 screens, previous/next/pause, and more.

    Installation: You will also need the server side PHP files which can be downloaded here. Installation instructions are included in the archive. You can also download the widget source here.

    Usage: Touch the top of the frame to adjust the slide delay and randomization. Touch lower left to go to previous image, lower right to go to next, lower middle to pause/play.
