An XQuery interface to Flickr

Volume 13, Issue 41; 29 Oct 2010

Easy access to the Flickr API from XQuery.

I think of each photo as a potential code patch to our body of common knowledge, not as a work of art.

A while back, I implemented an XSL Flickr API. In the course of fiddling with some more geospatial goodness for this weblog, I decided that I wanted it in XQuery as well. Easy peasy: XQuery-Flickr.

Share and enjoy.

(Credit where it's due, Jonathan Marsh did most of the heavy lifting by creating a WSDL 2.0 for Flickr. WSDL shmizdle, it's an XML representation of all the methods that I could quickly translate into XQuery functions.)
