I have been tasked with creating a replacement solution for the slideshow service that is currently just a mac mini with an old version of power point running. I am a newbie, I took a big nerd ranch iOS class at the start of the year and immediately bought the RW books and became a member of this site. I thought it may be helpful for someone else in the future to document my struggle here.
My requirements are:
read a folder of images
slide is viewable for 10 seconds
simple image transition to the next slide
once the slides have all been displayed
reread folder of images
I will either create a droplet in applescript that will call an shell script/ssh session to copy them over to the slideshow mac’s slides folder.
I am a unix admin by trade… wish me luck!
