Python FlickrAPI

Build Status Coverage Status

Most of the info can be found in the doc directory, or on

To install the Python Flickr API module from source, run::

python install

To install the latest version from PyPi:

pip install flickrapi

For development, install the extra dependencies using:

pip install tox .[docs] .[qa] .[test]

then run py.test in the top-level directory.

Supported Python versions

The minimum Python versions that are supported are 2.7 and 3.4.

Python 2.7 will be discontinued in 2020, which also marks the end of the support for Python 2.x for this library. We might discontinue supporting Python 2.x earlier than that, but only if there is a very compelling reason to do so.

As of September 2017, Python 3.3 stopped receiving security updates, at which time this library also stopped supporting it.

Generating the documentation

The documentation is written using Sphinx. Execute make html in the doc directory to generate the HTML pages. They can then be found in the doc/_build/html directory.


Run the tests on all supported Python versions with tox (pip install tox)::


To run the tests for a specific Python version, e.g. 2.7::

tox -e py27
