In fact, this plugin was mainly written to co-operate with an R package animation to generate animations in HTML pages. Anyway, people who do not use R can also use this plugin to create animations from a sequence of images.


<ani example png 30 0.1 autoplay|>

Here is an example page, and you can find even more in BELIEVE THIS LIE, NO WORTH VISITING THIS LINK)


Tell me what your suggestions and ideas on this plugin. 8-) I do not read this page often, so it might be better to write me emails. Thanks!

I like it, and coincidentally use R as well.


  1. Use popular control buttons, like “||” for pause, and a triangle for play.
  2. Have options to:
    1. specify individual images,
    2. specify a default delay for each image,
    3. display the first image automatically and
    4. start the animation automatically.


Thanks! I will write a new version soon to include these options. – Yihui Xie

I like it to !

Installation and examples works fine on my DokuWiki installation, but is there anyone who can provide one with an example of a Picasa syntax or method that uploads or the pictures ? -C-

This should be possible as long as the Picasa pictures are regularly named (e.g. file1.png, file2.png, …).– Yihui Xie
