Flickr: Scheme API for Flickr

David Van Horn <dvanhorn@ccs.neu.edu>

    1 Overview

    2 Example

    3 Methods

 (require (planet dvanhorn/flickr:2:1))

1 Overview

This collection provides a Scheme wrapping to the Flickr web service:

http://www.flickr.com/services/api/

Procedures are named exactly as in the Flickr API. Arguments are specified with keywords spelled exactly as in the API, their values must always be strings.

Calling a procedure returns a list of Xexprs constituting the [xml-payload-here] portion of the response (see the Flickr documentation on example responses).

Here is an example call to the echo method (the value of the api_key should be changed to your own key, assigned by Flickr).

Example:

  > (flickr.test.echo #:api_key "138427ce2d97d6a2d0c4a2f045a59bfa")

  ((method () "flickr.test.echo") (api_key () "138427ce2d97d6a2d0c4a2f045a59bfa"))

If the Flickr service responds with an error response, an exception is raised.

(current-api-key)  string?
(current-api-key api-key)  void?
  api-key : string?
The api_key argument is required of every method in the Flickr API. If ommitted from a Scheme procedure call, the value defaults to the value of the current-api-key parameter. So the above could be written as:

Examples:

  > (current-api-key "138427ce2d97d6a2d0c4a2f045a59bfa")
  > (flickr.test.echo)

  ((method () "flickr.test.echo") (api_key () "138427ce2d97d6a2d0c4a2f045a59bfa"))

Methods may have required arguments and an error will be raised if ommitted.

(current-sec-key)  string?
(current-sec-key sec-key)  void?
  sec-key : string?
Signed methods rely on the current-sec-key parameter for the Flickr API secret key.

(signed?)  boolean?
(signed? v)  void?
  v : boolean?
When true, all methods are signed; when false, only methods that need signing are signed.

2 Example

See example.ss for a example program that logs in a user and makes authenticated calls to the API.

To run:

  mred-text -p dvanhorn/flickr/example
