flickr api kits

has anyone come across a c++ api kit for flickr? my google skills found nothing and flickr doesn’t list anything in their dev kits online.

thanks

I found this thinking that perhaps you needed an underlying high-level web library like libcurl:

http://librdf.org/flickcurl/

hope that helps -

also, it’s not that hard to run python (or many other interpreted languages) from within c++, so if you would like, I think I can pass on some code that runs python (I was experimenting because it’s impossible to find a good cross-platform zip and the zipfile object in python is very good) and you can try running the python flickr api from c++ code. I’m not familiar with the API, but if you just wanted to query, etc, it might work very well.

take care!!

thanks zach,

It seemed to have worked out doing a sudo hack job with flickrlib…

flickr.py looked good but its disadvantage is that the function names are completely specialized from flickr method names, so you have to rely on googlecode documentation. …

although its worth bringing up that flickrlib doesn’t support non-ASCII characters.

regardless, got it working. python saves the day!
