Flickr-fs is a fuse filesystem that allows you to upload your files to flickr
.pngs. It's also really slow and liable to explode at any moment,
so don't seriously use it.
To try this, create a folder somewhere (I suggest
/[media|mnt]/[username]/flickrfs). Then copy sampleconfig.py to config.py and
update the values to match ones you get from flickr's create an app page. Then,
python2 runflickrfs.py <folder>, where folder is the folder you created
earlier. If everything goes well, after a few seconds you should get the message
that it sucessfully mounted. You can then run a few simple operations like
cp on the filesystem.
The FS is pretty slow and unoptimized, but not unusable.
time /bin/ls /media/me/mntpoint test test1 /bin/ls /media/me/mntpoint 0.00s user 0.00s system 0% cpu 1.830 total
However, it has the tendency to stall out sometimes and crash with a 503. I'm not sure if that's because I'm doing something wrong or because Flickr is throttling me.
