Grabbing Flickr Photos
This one will be improving considerably in the near future but given I’ve just been talking to many interesting people about APIs, reclaiming various things, and Indie-Ed Tech1 I figured I’d get it out early and that’d force me to follow up. Nothing like ugly betas to drive development.
It’s also a chance to test my new blog to Twitter system as I disentangle myself from IFTTT.
Nothing kills momentum like not doing something . . .
So this script currently works on public photos. You’ll need a file named imgs and a file named data.json. This thing should chew through all your photos and download the original size image to the folder. It’ll also make a giant json folder with the image title, any lat/long coordinates, tags (not machine entered though), and the photo date.
I will warn you that I’ve only run it on 100 photos so far. I’ll give the full thing a shot once I get things setup to put it on S3.
