* http://github.com/pangloss/ruby_picasa

== DESCRIPTION:

Provides a super easy to use object layer for authenticating and accessing
Picasa through their API.

== FEATURES:

* Simplifies the process of obtaining both a temporary and a permanent AuthSub
  token.
* Very easy to use API.
* Allows access to both public and private User, Album and Photo data.
* Uses Objectify::Xml to define the XML object-relational layer with a very
  easy to understand DSL. See www.github.com/pangloss/objectify_xml

== PROBLEMS:

* None known.

== SYNOPSIS:

  # 1. Authorize application for access (in a rails controller)
  #
  redirect_to RubyPicasa.authorization_url(auth_result_url)

  # 2. Extract the Picasa token from the request Picasa sends back to your app
  #    and create a permanent AuthSub token. Returns an initialized Picasa
  #    session.  (Called from the Rails action for auth_result_url above)
  picasa = RubyPicasa.authorize_request(self.request)

  # 3. Access the data you are interested in
  @album = picasa.user.albums.first
  @photo = @album.photos.first

  # 4. Display your photos
  image_tag @photo.url
  image_tag @photo.url('160c') # Picasa thumbnail names are predefined

== REQUIREMENTS:

* objectify_xml

== INSTALL:
