Last night before finally going to bed I searched the web for photo gallery software that I could adapt or incorporate into my cover gallery. Why reinvent the wheel? There is not shortage of sample code out there, but most isn’t fetching the images from an API. There are some Flickr ones, but fetching images from Flickr is easy, fetching information and images form Last.FM and Amazon requires private and public keys.
Update: I ended up creating a series of web mashups and giving away the majority of my PHP code as open source.
