SPA (Simple Photo Album) is a dynamic online photo album program written in PHP.
SPA is a VERY easy-to-use PHP script that generates dynamically a Photo
Album for your Web Site from a directory full of JPEG/GIF/PNG images : it generates the thumbnails once,
the first time you launch it, and the HTML Photo Album.
The generated thumbnails are approximately five times smaller than the original image files.
It includes previous/next links for easier navigation. No database or metafiles are needed.
Only ONE file is required.
INSTRUCTION : Put this script in a directory containing image files, and it will do the rest !
FetchNews! is an on-demand Web service that offers the possiblity to receive a chosen information by email or by SMS.
Its goal is to be launched at a given time to fetch a given piece of information in a given Web page,
and then sends this information to an email address or mobile phone.
This information may deal with anything: sport, weather, finance...
For example FetchNews! could be configured to be launched every day at 8am, fetches New-York weather information on
Yahoo Weather web page, and sends this information to your email address or mobile phone.
Here are some existing examples to understand :
- Press Review : fetches on the Web sites of several French newspapers the list of articles recommanded by
the readers, and sends this list to a set of email addresses (see an example here).
Main goal = be informed of the news without the need to go to different web sites every day...
- Futebol : fetches the last score of your favorite soccer team and send it on your mobile phone by SMS.
This one is meant to be launched right after the game to be informed of the score in "real-time".
Main goal = be informed of a sport result right after its end when you're out of home/office...
- Banking : fetches every day your bank account balance on your bank SSL web site, and send you a SMS
or email if your balance is negative. Banks already offer this service, but it's not free, and they usually ask a monthly
fee even when you don't use the service during the month...
Main goal = be informed of a banking deficit...
- iFly : fetches on a travel agency web site the best price for a flight ticket. For example, if you want
to go to Beijing from Paris about 2 weeks in October, iFly fetches the
best price for a flight between Paris and Beijing, between October 1 and October 31, between 14 and 16 days
(see an example here).
Main goal = save money and avoid doing hundreds of different searches by hands...
