Tutorial: Gallery & Image Loader

Gallery & Image Loader

Note how the context component is shared among the components and, via the auto login provider, handles authentication so that the rest of the components do not have to manage sessionIDs themselves. The gallery can be created in "horizontal", "verical" or "grid" mode
