(& updated May 08 by Chris Taggart, http://pushrod.wordpress.com) == FEATURES/PROBLEMS: The flickr gem (famously featured in a RubyonRails screencast) had broken with Flickr's new authentication scheme and updated API. This has now been largely corrected, though not all current API calls are supported yet. == SYNOPSIS: require 'flickr' flickr = Flickr.new('some_flickr_api_key') # create a flickr client (get an API key from http://www.flickr.com/services/api/) user = flickr.users('firstname.lastname@example.org') # lookup a user user.name # get the user's name user.location # and location user.photos # grab their collection of Photo objects... user.groups # ...the groups they're in... user.contacts # ...their contacts... user.favorites # ...favorite photos... user.photosets # ...their photo sets... user.tags # ...their tags... user.popular_tags # ...and their popular tags recentphotos = flickr.photos # get the 100 most recent public photos photo = recentphotos.first # or very most recent one photo.url # see its URL, photo.title # title, photo.description # and description, photo.owner # and its owner. File.open(photo.filename, 'w') do |file| file.puts p.file # save the photo to a local file end flickr.photos.each do |p| # get the last 100 public photos... File.open(p.filename, 'w') do |f| f.puts p.file('Square') # ...and save a local copy of their square thumbnail end end == REQUIREMENTS: * Xmlsimple gem == INSTALL: * sudo gem install flickr == LICENSE: (The MIT License) Copyright (c) 2008 Scott Raymond, Patrick Plattes, Chris Taggart Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the 'Software'), to deal in the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to the following conditions: The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
