I came across a nifty little Flash applet today called SimpleViewer. SimpleViewer is “a free, customizable Flash image viewing application“.
It’s pretty nifty I have to say, so I wrote a little bit of PHP (during my lunch break) to get SimpleViewer to pull in photos from a specified photo set in my Flickr account.
I’ve called this bit of code (rather imaginatively) FlickrViewer. You can see it in action here.
At the moment it’s a first draft. I’m happy for others to use it too, but I’d like to get a couple of people to ‘alpha/beta test’ it first. If you’re interested in getting involved, leave a comment below.
If you don’t want to help test, but want to use it on your site, just watch this category on my blog - I’ll update it when the code is available for download.
