AutoViewer plugin

This DokuWiki plugin displays a Flash application, AutoViewer from AirTight. It displays several JPG images with some controler buttons.

:!: Development discontinued :!:

The AutoViewer display a slideshow by reading XML file containing URL of image source, width, height and caption for each images. However, this plugin don't need XML code for a slideshow. So you can display a slideshow with a minimal syntax.

:!:Notice that this plugin requires 'cache_plugin' to cache intermediate XML files that are stored in aviewer namespace.


<aviewer (max-width) (max-height) (left/right/noalign)>
…Image list seperated by line-feed…

Use <aviewer> tag to begin. Max-width and max-height are sizes of a slideshow. Images will be automatically resized to max-height or max-width for a correct dimension of each image. Syntax of image list is identical to that of DokuWiki's image file.

You can also use namespaces of image files.


<aviewer 320 240> Flowers Flowers Blue sky flowers </aviewer>


<aviewer 320 240>
{{computer:en:phm10_0651.jpg|Blue sky}}

Other options

<aviewer clear_cache></aviewer>Remove all cached XML files
<aviewer remove_dir></aviewer>Clear and remove cache directory
