Project Description

A Flickr Photo Viewer widget. Souce files are included to enable you to build this widget using FlashDevelop, the free Flash development environment.

The widget searches Flickr for photos with a certain tag-word, and scrolls them across the screen. As photos are displayed, you can press and drag them to go to the next or previous photo in the "photostrip". Note that this is not the best place for a beginner to start learning how to create widgets! Some Actionscript background is needed to follow this example. Several of Chumby's photo viewing widgets are based on the same source code.


Edit the FlickrViewer.as script, and enter your own Flickr API Key, which you can obtain from here: http://www.flickr.com/services/api/misc.api_keys.html


The complete source code will be uploaded soon. No .FLA file is needed.

Compile and Run

Simply open FlickrViewer.fdp in FlashDevelop, and build the project. Once FlickrViewer.swf is built, you can create a 80*60 thumbnail image and upload it as your widget. Further instructions are outlined in FlashDevelop/Example or see Chumby_tricks#Mixing_local_widgets_into_a_channel
