Flickr Rainbow

Made using the Flickr API and Processing to get the last 12 images for the colours of the rainbow.


There's a live Flickr Rainbow applet (plus source code) too, if you want it to be up to date.

    This is really nice! Can we run it against our own photostreams?
  • Tom Carden 11y

    You can modify the source to search by user_id - or you can wait for me to do it.

    A friendly interface is in the works.
  • Eric Costello PRO 11y

    Excellent! Post this in the API group discussion also!

    A kind reader pointed out that my rainbow is backwards. Oops! A fix is on the way.
  • Schlomo Rabinowitz PRO 11y

    That. is. neato.
  • Christopher Kobayashi 11y

    Very nice!
    Processing looks like a kewl language to learn.

    Hopefully colorblind people like me don't mess this up with bad tags :)
