Flickr PHP API

Why this class

I was searching for a good PHP5 class, one without PHP4 support. One that use cURL for the REST-API from Flickr. With this API I wanted to give users the chance to decide in wich format they want their results and support some basic methods and the more advanced are possible with the custom query.

How to use

Setting API-key and default return format

<?php
    include('flickr.php');

    // set the API-key
    Flickr::setApikey('API-key'); // change 'API-key' with yours

    // set the default return format
    // default is set to Flickr::JSON
    Flickr::setFormat(Flickr::PHP); // Flickr::PHP is a format for returning a serialized array

    $params = array(
       'method' => 'flickr.test.echo',
       'foo' => 'bar',
    );

    $flickr_results = Flickr::makeCall($params);
?>

Setting it all together in one request

<?php
    include('flickr.php');

    $params = array(
       'api_key' => 'API-key',
       'format' => Flickr::XML,
       'method' => 'flickr.test.echo',
       'foo' => 'bar',
    );

    $flickr_results = Flickr::makeCall($params);
?>
