Just to increase the score for python and Python apps for the Zaurus...

Here's a little app I designed as a Flickr Viewer for the Zaurus.
Its still a work in progress, so be patient with features.

Features
-----------
Allows to view photo groups, photos for any users.
Able to view by Flickr NSID or by Username.
I haven't implemented the Flickr Authentication API method yet (since that requires a browser login, and I wanted a self-contained app).

Also able to view photos by "Interestingness" in Flickr.
Able to store photos to local disk for offline viewing (no photo titles or tags in offline mode). Can delete local photos to clear up memory space.

Future Plans
---------------
Plan to implement searching by photo Tags, most Popular Tags.
Search by email ID etc later on. Ability to change settings etc.
Also implement Authenication so as to allow read/write access to user Flickr account.
That would include upload photos to Flickr from Zaurus.

Requires
-------------
Python (tested with Kopsis Python) on the Zaurus.

nilch,
I have a C3100 with Cacko 1.23 lite
I have no programming experiance at all, and spent the entire day reading this python subforum.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading most all the posts. smile.gif
I have installed kopsis python24 image and executable, as instructed on website where I downloaded it.
I then installed flickrz_0.2_arm.ipk.
It gives me this error message in the package installer in Cacko:
-------------------------------------------------
The extract of some files are failed.
The application may not execute normally.
When you cannot operate the application,
please remove it.
-------------------------------------------------

I have downloaded it 3 times,
(once with my browser, and twice with a download manager)
I still get the same errors upon install.

However, the application launches and seems to work.
I'm not sure what to input as a username or NSID
I tried "zaurus" and (no username). Login didn't work.
How do I login? Is login necessory to browse the filesystem for pics?
I have also tried "Execute with root privilage" in the "tap & hold" dialog.
How do I browse the filesystem to view my picture files?
If I click "View local pics", all I can view is the included sample picture.

Thank you,
Jon

The extract of some files error is a common ipkg error. I think I need to include some control file, but haven't been able to remove that error still. Maybe my IPKG version with which I packaged it is old. But neverthless, inspite of the error message, the application works fine. Also when you uninstall (from the add remove apps), all the files are removed from the correct locations and there is no residual files or directories left behind.

About the login - yes, you need to have a Flickr ID to be able to see your own albums and photos. Also once logged in, you can download other's photos (from the most interesting group) and store/view them locally on your Zaurus later.

Also if you know someone's flicker username (like I check out Jeremy Zawodny's flying photos and got his username from his blogs), then you can enter that username also to see the user's public photos. You can only view public photos of other users, not their private marked photos.
The NSID is just a flickr ID that each user is assigned. But yes, you need to be logged into Flickr.

The local photos is only to view photos saved locally from Flickr - not all local photos that are saved on your Zaurus. It just shows photos saved to your local Flickr Viewer directory only.

Hope that helps
