Grabbing Flickr Photos

flickr photo shared by goosmurf under a Creative Commons ( BY ) license 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. 1 Count down to book . . .

No notifications, full screen, no screen saver applescript

flickr photo shared by David Allen Wizardgold under a Creative Commons ( BY-ND ) license I saw this exchange on Twitter yesterday. hear me out. "netflix mode" keyboard shortcut that auto full screens, disables all notifications & suspends screensaver — Tressie Mc (@tressiemcphd) August 10, 2015 It seemed like something I could do in Applescript for those on the Mac. This example works in 10.10.4 (and could form the basis for something similar that’d work in other OS versions). Note, at the moment it doesn’t turn things back on afterwards. If I see any interest, I’ll add that kind of thing. Currently, it also assumes you want Chrome to go full screen but it’d be easy to change that to whatever application you want. To try it out, open up Applications>Script Editor. Cut and paste this in and hit the play button. If it does what you want, you can save it as an App and then just click it to launch.
