A Photobooth web interface for Raspberry Pi and Windows.

Photobooth was initially developped by Andre Rinas, you can find his source here.

This is my personal Photobooth fork with some extras on top (more information can be found below).

Please note: Safari Browser on iOS 9 in not compatible with es6, which means Photobooth won't work. Supported browser can be found inside the Wiki. If you like to use an old iPad anyway, please take a look here (andi34/photobooth#47). If I find enough time I'll post some updates from time to time.
