Creating a Photo Tag Wall With Twilio Picture Messaging & PHP
January 10, 2014 @ 10:36:00

On NetTuts.com today there's a new tutorial that helps you create a "photo tag wall" using the Twilio picture messaging functionality and some PHP. The picture messaging service lets you send and receive photos over phone numbers and short codes.

Twilio's recently announced Picture Messaging has vastly opened up what we can do with text messaging, now we can attach photos to our text messages and have them get used in different ways. In our case, we are going to build a Photo Tag Wall, which will contain photos linked to tags that will be displayed on a website. This can be handy for events, or parties, or just about anything where you want to associate photos and tags.

They use a combination of the Jolt microframework for the structure of the app, Idiorm/Paris for the MySQL handling and the Twilio PHP library to talk to their web service. They start by setting up the database tables for both the "tag" and "photo" (SQL included). They include a sample configuration file, used by the Twilio library, and get into the actual code. The first part shows how to make the request to the API and resize the fetched data into a correctly sized photo on the server. Then they get into the routing, making both a root path and a "listener" for the Twilio API to call when a new photo it sent. Finally, they set up the actual photo wall page, pulling the image data from the database and the image from the local file system.

International Stock Exchange Forum:
Getting RSS Feeds into Lively
July 10, 2008 @ 15:28:09

Just for you Lively early adopters out there, there's a script that's been posted to the International Stock Exchange forum showing how to get a feed into the virtual world.

Here is a free PHP script to convert the titles of a news feed to a PNG graphic for display in Google Lively. To display a news feed in Google Lively, go to the "Add object" button, search for "Picture Frame". Click on add to room and then edit properties. In Gadget Options place the url of the PHP script in the option box.

The script can then be hosted on a web server where it can pull down the latest stories and update the PNG image accordingly.

If you attended the International PHP Conference back in 2004, you might want to check out this new post from Aaron Wormus concerning some pictures:

Finally I got around to posting some of my old pictures from IPC2k4. A lot of the regulars, some faces who we haven't seen in a while. Enjoy.

Be sure not to miss the shot of one of Zend's "founding fathers" immortalized in a coupon.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Ubuntu Add-Ons with PHP
August 16, 2006 @ 07:18:05

In his latest post on the SitePoint PHP blog today, Harry Fuecks talks about a problem he was having - adding comments to pictures to be stored with them, not seperately. He's found a solution and it involves g-scripts.

One particular problem is adding comments to images; most archiving software (like gthumb) has you store stuff seperately from the images, maintaining their own databases (in the case of gthumb, under ~/.gnome2/gthumb). But I'd rather have comments stay with the image (e.g. using Exif - there are other ways but Exif wins on being widely supported).

He talks about the use of the g-scripts and something called Zenity to make the popup inputs for the comments. After some quick tips to be sure everything's set up, he demonstrates how to, with PHP scripts and Zenity, to integrate the comments into the Exif data of your files.
