After a little more tinkering, I’ve got a (barely) working prototype of a local image gallery driven by the Flickr API.
It ain’t pretty, but it works. It grabs sets of images from my Flickr photos and displays them in a grid. The joy here will be that I control the presentation but leave the dirty work of organizing and uploading to the Flickr site. It’s neat. Take a peek at the work in progress here
