django-cms plugin to scrape a Google Photos public album link for photo urls.

Project description


djangocms-scrape-google-photos-album is a plugin for django CMS that allows you to include a public google photo album in your site by way of scraping their html.

WARNING: This is implementation is likely to break due to the nature of scraping. The regex will need to be updated whenever google changes the structure of that page.


  • python 3.5+
  • django 1.11 (other versions may work, but this is the only one that has been tested)
  • django-cms 3.5 (other versions may work, but this is the only one that has been tested)


pip install djangocms-scrape-google-photos-album


Note: Results are cached for 30 minutes. If this doesn't serve your needs, make an issue.


Override the template included, as it's likely to not be the html that you want. Below is an example of how you could use it with Bootstrap 3 and featherlight.js.


{% if photo_urls %}
  <div class="container-fluid">
    <div class="row" data-featherlight-gallery data-featherlight-filter="a" data-featherlight-type="image">
      {% for photo_url in photo_urls %}
        <div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-4 col-md-3">
          <a href="{{ photo_url }}=w1200-h1200">
            <img src="{{ photo_url }}=w300-h300-c" class="img-responsive" />
      {% endfor %}
{% endif %}
