Flickr plugin for Bold

This plugin allows to import Photos directly from Flickr.


Add the plugin to your Bold installation

Add to your Gemfile.local:

gem 'flickraw', github: 'bold-app/flickraw', branch: 'bold'
gem 'bold-flickr', github: 'bold-app/bold-flickr'

Run bundle install, commit Gemfile.local and Gemfile.lock, deploy.

Configure Flickr API key and secret

To get these credentials, sign in to Flickr and go to their App registration page.

There are two places where you can set these in Bold:

  • As a global setting for the whole installation in config/flickr.yml
  • As a per-site setting in the site's plugin config. This overrides a possibly present global setting.

config/flickr.yml should look like this:

  api_key: 319e8c407cddb53a54213dae71f49b1d
  api_secret: ead9b24bc79af50f

You can also set credentials for any other Rails environments here.


The "New File" section (click on Files then '+') will have a new navigation item "Flickr", where you first connect your Bold account with your Flickr account. After that you can browse your photo stream and Flickr albums, select photos and import them.
