Easy Flickr

Simplifying popular content sharing websites has got Chris Heilmann on a roll. First it was Easy YouTube player and now he is working on a simple photo viewer for Flickr. This is a simple API that allows you to search for photo’s, 20 at a time, within Flickr bypassing the busyness of the main Flickr user interface.

Chris has made the source code available for download so you can host the interface yourself. All you need is a server with PHP and cURL and that’s it.

Information and instructions can be found on his blog.

Update: If you’re interested to know about how the easy Flickr API was built Chris has written a step-by-step guide.
