Google Data & PHP4

November 6, 2007 Leave a comment


It doesn’t work.  I was looking at writing a module for Exponent to integrate Picasa Web Albums, but I can’t because the Google Data Client Library for PHP requires PHP5 and our lamo webhosters are still running PHP4.  That’s why if you look at the code for the webalbummodule you’ll see it’s not a real API integration, just a screen scrape of the Picasa Web Album interface.

Exponent Web Album Module

Update: Since my web hosting provider deleted my site this is probably gone forever.  It may be in my sprawling archives somewhere, and if I ever find it I’ll make it available for download again.  Leave a comment it you’d like me to step up the search!

Whilst developing our family website using the Exponent CMS I’ve had to implement a couple of my own modules to do specific things. This one is a module that displays a web album from a public provider like Google’s Picasa Web Albums, Flickr, Kodak Photos or whatever.

It’s pretty basic at the moment; only Picasa is implemented; no authentication so only public galleries can be displayed; can only display one gallery at a time; no control over the look and feel and so on. Some of these features may get added as I get time or requests to do so.

Anyway … download it from the link above for use with your Exponent installation!
