This project is used to demonstrate how easy a web app can use your camera to take a photo. As long as you give permission to this web app to use your camera when you launched the page, it can take your camera photo right away without any further notification.
on the mobile devices, phone or tablet, it will use front camera to take the photo.
https connection will be required for most of browsers. Using http, most browsers will not be able to get Camera permission.
Try this app using Heroku.
Basic web page to ask your permission to access your camera. Web page to show you the captured camera photos
https://camera51.herokuapp.com/ : Once you accessed this page, either through computer, or mobile devices, it will ask your permission to access camera then it will take a photo from your camera automatically. The photo taken by camera will be saved into a folder named by your public ip. Captured Photo will be placed into website /photos/ folder
Note: The photo will be deleted automatically once Heroku app is in idle. It will be active 12 hours/day from 8AM – 8PM.
To manage the camera photo, you might need to use another php script to view/delete/upload your photos. In this project, I integrated the one from https://github.com/jcampbell1/simple-file-manager . The code has been put into index.php file under photos folder to make the whole project easy to use.
Notes: Original index.php and photo.php code is from SunPma’s blog post,“https://sunpma.com/994.html”. I translated all to English and add simple-file-manager code into it. All codes are belongs to original authors.
