Flickr Party

Flickr Party is the simplest possible thing that might work for you. We build on HTTParty, and do a bit of method_missing magic to accept any method that the official Flickr API supports.

You can also (optionally) do authenticated API calls using the auth_url and complete_auth methods (see below).

Installation

gem install flickr_party

Usage

require 'rubygems'
require 'flickr_party'

# get your key and secret from:
# http://www.flickr.com/services/apps
API_KEY = '...'
SECRET = '...'

f = FlickrParty.new(API_KEY, SECRET)

# if you want to do authenticated calls, authenticate the user like so:
f.auth_url # open this in a browser for the user to confirm
# wait until confirmed, and then save the auth token...
token = f.complete_auth

# call any API method by calling it on the FlickrParty object directly
# pass in any needed parameters as a hash
data = f.flickr.activity.userPhotos('timeframe' => '10d')

puts data['photos'].first.url
