A simple, lightweight PHP script for automatic Dropbox gallery.
Short case scenario: Steve, a busy photographer, already has a collection of 1000 beautiful photos uploaded on Dropbox. He wants to showcase or sell them. He has no time or desire to upload each and every one on his website, editing names or descriptions, nor money to spend on expensive hosting (generally needed for photography websites). Steve buys this script, spends 5 minutes editing a file per readme.txt instructions and uploads the folder on his domain. He instantly has a fully functional website, showcasing his 1000 photos gallery directly from his Dropbox, with no further maintenance. Each newly uploaded photo on Dropbox will be automatically triggered on his website.
This script is built with simplicity in mind, it does not require a database, a complex setup or a large hosting, the gallery being created from Dropbox hosted photos. Sales are completed via Gumroad. You’ll have your online photo store up and running in 5 minutes with little to no work. Gumroad is optional if all you wish is to showcase your photos.
– Any hosting (even free)
– Dropbox (free)

After downloading, unzip the file, open config.php file and define the necessary fields. Open assets/images and replace the cover image and logo with your own. That’s it! Upload the folder to your website and see it in action.
