Flickr2Piwigo 1.3.0

I thought I’d help out and try to update the Flickr2Piwigo plugin to support OAuth, but having done so I now seem to have become a maintainer of the thing. So that’s good. I’ve just released version 1.3.0.

I’ll try to see to all the outstanding bug reports (well, there’s only one at the moment). And then perhaps add some extra features (support for approximate dates? automatic downloading? download of other people’s photos?).

Updating Flickr2Piwigo

I’ve decided to try to bring the Flickr2Piwigo plugin up to date in order to support OAuth (Flickr’s old system of authentication was turned off in the middle of last year). I’ve been tinkering with getting the PhpFlickr library working properly lately (which is what Flickr2Piwigo uses to talk to Flickr), and although there’s lots more to do to it I’ve at least got the OAuth parts working (thanks to the lusitanian/oauth package). So now I’m going to add this to the Flickr2Piwigo.

There’s no support for Composer in Piwigo, so I’m not really sure how this is going to work. Probably some custom distribution-generation process; I’ll worry about that later. Hopefully we’ll not resort to committing vendor/.

Once this is working, I’ll go back to PhpFlickr and write some better documentation (probably Read The Docs) and fix up the caching system (it’s a bespoke oddity at the moment, that I think should be replaced with simple PSR-6 support).
