Photo Album Lua Script

Published:
6K Views
This Lua script for Conky makes use of the built-in Cairo and imlib2 bindings to display a photo album of a specified directory. It displays each of the photos in the directory in (alphanumeric) order, and will work with any type of photo that imlib2 can interpret.

To use the script, extract the .lua file to somewhere like ~/scripts/photo_album.lua and call it in Conky using the following before TEXT:
lua_load ~/scripts/photo_album.lua
lua_draw_hook_pre photo_album

The package contains the photo_album.lua script, a photo album widget code block (for use with Conky Widgets v1.1+), the .conkyrc that created the screenshot, and the screenie itself for reference.
