Using Gallery API for slideshows and galleries

45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



Gallery API - is an API module that was developed to combine all gallery and slideshow modules together. We bring an API that can be used to develop data layer (input method), which gives us slides and presenting layer (output method) that is responsible for displaying the gallery. The main advantage of this system is that you can create Gallery presets (just like Imagecache presets) and use any input method with any output method.

Session plan:
1. A problem of all existing gallery and slideshow modules
2. The proposed solution
3. Gallery API structure and aim
4. Developing Input methods
5. Developing Output methods
6. Examples of situations were we can use Gallery API
