flickr_friend

This script uses Selenium WebDriver and Firefox to scrape the Flickr friends and followers lists of the currently logged-in Flickr user. Then it groups the contacts into 3 sets: mutual friends, only followers, and only following.

Web scraping is unfortunately necessary because while the Flickr API provides an endpoint for retrieving the user's following list, it still doesn't have a way to retrieve the user's followers.

Installation

First, you need to install GeckoDriver:

Then install the required Ruby gem:

gem install selenium-webdriver

Usage

Run the script:

ruby flickr_friend.rb

You can control what this script outputs using the -m, -r, and -o options:

$ ruby flickr_friend.rb -h
This script uses Selenium WebDriver and Firefox to scrape the Flickr friends
and followers lists of a Flickr user.
Then it groups the contacts into 3 sets: mutual friends, only followers, and
only following.

Usage: flickr_friend.rb [options]
    -h, -?, --help                   Option help
    -m, --mutual                     Show mutual friends
    -r, --only-friends               Show only-friends
    -o, --only-followers             Show only-followers
If none of -m/-r/-o are specified, display all 3 categories.

You can control what this script outputs using the -m, -r, and -o options:

followers lists of a Foodspotting user.
