display all images in folder without php

I am working on an HTML5 app and I am trying to show all images in a folder using no PHP. I want to pull the files from a local folder on the user’s machine since I want the user to be able to save images into this folder and view them in a slideshow without the use of a server.

It seems this is not possible without PHP due to security concerns but I would think with so many web apps and smartphone apps being created out there, there would be a way to do this locally by now without having to use a server…perhaps with CSS, JQuery or fileapi?

Any feedback on if this is possible would be greatly appreciated.
