Here are some information on how Photo-Folders was developped.
Photo-Folders is a Wordpress plugin created with traditional and standard open sources tools:
- PHP 5.4+ and MySQL for the server side.
- AJAX and JSON for client/server communication.
Photo-Folders works on any self-hosted Wordpress instance, like with OVH or 1&1. It must be possible to install it with accessing Wordpress's files through FTP or with the plugin upload feature available in administrative mode. The plugin must be allowed to create folders in the Wordpress folder.
Photo-Folders uses less than 3 Mb space in its simple version and over 450 Mo for its complete version containing all help files and camera/lenses images. The simple version is the one to used for an installation through Wordpress plugin admin. Photo-Folders will then automatically download help and images files on an as-needed basis and transparently for the user from a reference site.
Photo-Folders is using jQuery and jQueryUITouch which are loaded on your browser through the Internet. It's also using some open APIs from Facebook (frame, comments), Twitter (button, Twitter cards), Google (analytics) and Pinterest.
Photo-Folders also encapsulates Mobile_detect.php, jQuery.mousewheel.min, jQuery nicescroll, jQuery Greyscale and Chart.js which are all under an "MIT Licence".
Photo-Folders was tested with the following Internet browsers:
- Recent versions of Chrome, Safari and Firefox running on Windows, Linux and MacOS when available.
- Internet Explorer 9 or later but without navigation history support for IE9.
- Safari on iPad and iPhone, with multitouch support.
- Chrome on tablets and smartphones running Android, supporting "single touch".
- The Internet browser from the Freebox Revolution (in France).
- The usage of the plugin on a TV screen through a Google Chromecast key, when using Chrome under Windows.
Are not yet supported and tested:
- Internet Explorer 10/11 under Windows 8.
- Internet Explorer 8.0 and earlier versions.
