Flamework is the semi-fictional framework that powers Flickr.com. It's less of an actual framework and more of a design philosophy. None of the code in this project is actually taken from Flickr, but is rather a reconstruction of the way we built things there and the way we continue to build things now.
This library is a work in progress. While it basically works, it's lacking lots of the bits it really needs. As we pull these parts from other projects (and I've built most parts 10 times over by now), it'll start to take better shape. If you have stuff you want to add, fork, commit and file a pull-request.
Installation - As a base for a new project

That might be it.
