DocPad plugin that uploads images to flickr

Flickr Images Plugin for DocPad

This plugin will handle uploading images to flickr and linking them to your site in DocPad

Lots of thing to do:

  • Currently the output has been made to work with fancybox, which is fine for me, but not for everyone.
  • Explain step by step how to obtain flickr OAuth keys (not so straight forward).
  • unit tests are very light and do not test any important stuff

npm install --save docpad-plugin-flickrimages

The way it works is by looking into src/files/flickr-images/#{document.flickrImagesDirectory or document.basename} for files. Where flickrImagesDirectory is set in your document's meta data, and if it doesn't exist it will use the document's basename (e.g. the basename of is my-holiday-2012). Any files inside that path will be associated to your document, and retrievable by @getDocument().getAssociatedFiles()

Lets see how this works, we have the document src/documents/

title: My Holiday in 2012
<h2>Here are some great photos from our trip</h2>
<%- @getDocument().getFlickrImage('The Eiffel Tour.jpg') %>

Then we will stick The Eiffel Tour.jpg in this folder: src/files/flickr-images/my-holiday-2012. And we'll end up with the rendered result:

<h2>Here are some great photos from our trip</h2>
<a rel="flickr-images/my-holiday-2012/" class="fancybox" data-fancybox-href="" href=""><img src=""></a>

You need to create a .env file in your docpad repository containing the following line:


Isn't that cool?

You can discover the history inside the file
