Flickr.Net API Library

Welcome to the Flickr.Net API Libraries new home on CodePlex.

The Flickr.Net API Library is a .Net Library for accessing the Flickr API. It is written entirely in C# it can be accessed from the following frameworks:

  • .Net Framework 2.0 and above.
  • .Net Compact Framework 2.0 SP1 and above.
  • Silverlight 3.0 and above.
  • Windows 7 Phone
  • Mono
  • Monotouch for iPhone

The library provides a simple one-to-one mapping to the methods of the Flickr REST API, hopefully hiding all of the complexity of calling the API, especially when it comes to authentication. Check the Flickr API web site for the full list of commands, and then use the corresponding method in the Flickr library, e.g. to call use the Flickr.PhotosSearch method.

The library is not an attempt to provide an ORM layer over the Flickr API, e.g. if you retrieve a list of photosets for a user (i.e. by calling Flickr.PhotosetsGetList) there is no direct property on each photoset to get the photos for that set, you must go back to the Flickr object and call Flickr.PhotosetsGetPhotos passing in the photoset id.


The project is licensed under both the LGPL 2.1 license, and the Apache 2.0 license. This gives you the flexibility to do pretty much anything you want with the code. Enjoy!
