  1. Hello everyone, greetings from Belo Horizonte / Brazil. I'm on the process of converting a site from WP to Processwire, this one: http://www.ricardo-vargas.com I needed a simple Flickr Gallery and tried to find a way to create album pages via API and download the images to the local filesystem (just a few, for cache purposes). So I created yesterday a simple script that, given an album ID, download its data using cURL and save the photos to a temp dir. After that, add them to a new page under /pictures/ Feel free to comment on the code, I'm a designer, not a developer, and this is my first time using PW API You can grab it on GitHub: https://github.com/sjardim/processwire-simple-flickr-album Instructions Download the files Put the templates/get_flickr_sets.php on your templates/ folder. Create a page on Processwire using this template Create or edit the page where the albums will be created. In my case it was /pictures/ IMPORTANT: Add guest edit/create permissions to this /pictures/ page, otherwise the script won't work Create a temp dir on your server and set it on the previous file Get a Flickr API on https://www.flickr.com/services/apps/create/ Add one or more Flickr album IDs on get_flickr_sets.php Open the page using the get_flickr_sets.php template on your browser <?php include "../lib/curl.class.php"; // You will need to get a Flick API Key // Get it here: https://www.flickr.com/services/apps/create/ // Load it on the file below include "../lib/flickr_album_utils.php"; function download_file($url) { // Save the image on local filesystem (You need to create this folder first) // On your server it can be /var/www/name_of_folder/ $tempdir = '/Users/XXX/phpFlickrCache/'; $fp = $tempdir . basename(parse_url($url, PHP_URL_PATH)); // if we already downloaded the images for some reason (like testing), just return it if (!file_exists($fp)) { $fh = fopen($fp, 'wb'); $curl = curl_init($url); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_BINARYTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FILE, $fh); curl_exec($curl); curl_close($curl); fclose($fh); } return $fp; } // Get some public album id to test $albumID = ["72157636029541784"]; //$albumID = ["72157649576832173", "72157633296236495", "72157644132091553", "72157636029541784"]; // Load ProcessWire API $pages = wire('pages')->get('/pictures/'); /* -------------------------- GET ALBUM INFO FROM FLICKR -------------------------- */ foreach($albumID as $album) { // Via GET, return album and its photos info $album = fa_get_album($album); // create a new post $page = new Page(); $page->template = 'picture_album'; $page->parent = $pages; // disable page output formatting $page->of(false); $page->name = wire('sanitizer')->pageName($album['title'], true); $page->flickr_album_id = $album['id']; $page->title = $album['title']; $page->generic_integer = $album['total']; //total number of photos on flickr album – OPTIONAL //My client albums descriptions have two phrases, one in English and other in Portuguese // let's separate then by the period, but sometimes there is no period, so the PT description will remain blank $description = explode('.', $album['description']); $en = $languages->get("default"); $page->summary->setLanguageValue($en, $description[0]); $pt = $languages->get("portuguese"); $page->summary->setLanguageValue($pt, $description[1]); $page->set("status$pt", 1); //activate portuguese page $page->save(); // We need to save the page BEFORE adding images /* ------------------------------------ DOWNLOAD AND SAVE IMAGES FROM FLICKR ------------------------------------ */ $images = array(); $i=1; $maxImages = 11; foreach($album["all_images"] as $f) { //we do not want all the photos, just a little bit if ($i >= $maxImages) break; // mount the flickr photo url using its attributes $photo_url = 'https://farm'.$f["farm"].'.staticflickr.com/'.$f["server"].'/'.$f["id"].'_'.$f["secret"].'_b.jpg'; // download and return the image file in the filesystem $images[$album['id']][$i] = download_file($photo_url); // add images to the current page in the loop $page->images->add($images[$album['id']][$i]); $i++; } $page->save(); echo "<p>Created page for album: <strong>".$album['title']. "</strong></p>"; // Tip: Now, after we saved the images to ProcessWire /site/assets/files/, we can safely delete them from the $tempdir if needed } print "<pre>"; print_r($images); print "</pre>"; Admin Screenshot
