SitePoint:
Build a Photo Gallery Using CakePHP and Flickr
April 05, 2007 @ 08:28:00

A new tutorial has been posted on the SitePoint site today - Jonathan Snook's look at combining CakePHP and Flicker to build a photo gallery.

Want to share your Flickr photostream with the world, but only once you've given it a nice, customized touch? Look no further than CakePHP -- and a few lines of code -- to pull off some magic! In this article, we'll use the Flickr API and CakePHP to take the images we've loaded onto Flickr and use them to build our own, non-Flickr web gallery.

He steps the reader through the tools needed (including the Flickr Component for CakePHP) and how to get things set up and working together. With just a few simple calls to the Flickr API, the script grabs a photoset, gets the information about them and, finally, grabs a list of them to use in the photo gallery layout. He even throws in a sample usage of the popular Lightbox Javascript helper to show off the photos.

May 15, 2006 @ 05:53:23

The pyxy-gallery script is an open source PHP-based package that uses Ajax/enhanced Javascript to pull off it's interesting preview method. Based around the Prototype and Lightbox libraries, it provides dynamic pagination and image bookmarking. It's also intended to be lighter on the bandwidth for you and your server - not having to pull all of the content across each time, only what it needs.

The package is neatly tied up in a single PHP script, and the installation is a breeze (check out the docs)

For complete information, to download the script, or to check out a sample gallery, head over to their site and get all of the details.
