I'm searching for a small script (.php) that will generate a gallery from the current directory. I hope you know what I mean. Something like below. EDIT: I mean something that requires no installation, no configuration, etc. I need just put this script in the directory with images, open in web-browser and get simple gallery.

A Very Simple PHP file that searches the current directory for jpg, png and gif files and puts it in a HTML <img> tag.

$format = '<img src="[FILE]"> [FILE]<br>';


$files = glob("*.{jpeg,jpg,png,gif}", GLOB_BRACE);

foreach ($files as $file) {
    if (is_file($file)) {
        echo str_replace('[FILE]', htmlspecialchars($file), $format);

Nothing fancy, it shows all images after each other. Save it as index.php. Your webserver should support PHP and usually shows index.php for directories.

PhpGraphy should do the job.

If you do not want any installation try this:

if ($handle = opendir('.')) {
    /* This is the correct way to loop over the directory. */
    while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        $ext = end(explode('.', $file));
        if($ext == "jpg" || $ext == "png") {
            echo "<img src=\"$file\" alt=\"Image\" />";

TStarGallery seems to be exactly what you want. If you want something a little more configurable, something like Gallery would require a bit more work to set up, but reward you with more options.
