Flickr to Textile Import/Export Tool 📷
name: Request For Flickr -> Textile Import/Export Tool 📷
about: Similarly to the existing Facebook/Instagram import tool, it would be great to have a quick way to import Flickr photos into a Textile account!
**How would this project demonstrate the Textile technology? What problem does it help solve? Please describe.**
The project would demonstrate how a library can be built to integrate with the Textile technology and network. It would leverage private account, wallet, threads, and file's API and connect to a 3rd party API (Flickr).
**Describe the solution you'd like**
2. Connected to a private Textile instance also running on their computer. For now, this can be build around the Textile local API / daemon, no UI needed.
3. Connect to the Flickr API to authenticate and then help the user bulk export their original photos, and encrypt & store those photos in their local Textile.
4. The library would build upon Textile's command-line tools for creating and modifying groups or threads.
5. The final result should be capable of running as a single command line script on any desktop also running a Textile node, e.g. ``` -k -s -u username```. A `package.json` should be included that allows the users to quickly install all necessary dependencies.
6. The result of running that code should be a new Thread in the user's Textile account containing original photos + metadata as provided by their Flickr posts.
Ideally, this project would benefit from [previous work](https://github.com/textileio/textile-explore/tree/master/facebook) on a Facebook import/export tool built by the Textile team. [Read more here](https://medium.com/textileio/take-back-your-facebook-instagram-posts-ce7b8d676353).
**Describe alternatives you've considered**
Since this tooling doesn't yet exist, there aren't many alternatives. One alternative would be a tool that imports a folder or folders of photos into Textile groups... however, it would be much more useful to automatically extract photo data (and metadata) from Flickr directly to make this useful.
**Documentation & Adoption Strategy**
-k -s -u username
Where the api-key and secret would be those required by the [Flickr™️ API](https://www.flickr.com/services/api/). The username would be used to communicate with the `Person` API endpoint. Alternative access tools/methods would also be considered.
The library should finally include a README that will walk any new user through the download, install, and execution steps to run the script from scratch. Ideally, the documentation would be sufficient that a novice developer, or someone only moderately familiar with Textile, Flickr, and scripting, could follow along.
The final project should be submitted as a PR to this repo under a folder titled ```flicker-exporter```
To get started on building with Textile, take a look at this repo's [README](https://github.com/textileio/textile-explore/blob/master/README.md), which contains a number of useful links and details to get started. You'll want to focus on a locally running Textile node and not worry about the mobile node in this work.
We also encourage you to share your work if you see it as valuable. You can [see our example blog](https://medium.com/textileio/take-back-your-facebook-instagram-posts-ce7b8d676353) post on the Facebook library to help you think about ways to communicate it.
