cs193p – Assignment #4 Task #1

Please note, this blog entry is from a previous course. You might want to check out the current one.

You will be using the method stanfordPhotos in the provided FlickrFetcher helper code to get an NSArray of Flickr photos of various sites on the Stanford campus. Each entry in the NSArray is an NSDictionary object with numerous entries which describe the photo (more on this below). FlickrFetcher.h has #defines for the keys.

Create a new single-view project. Because the we know already that it should also run on iPads in the near future (extra task #2 or next assignment) make it universal. Add the Flickr-API to the project by dragging in the provided files (or get them from Shutterbug). Get the API key directly from Flickr and set it in FlickrAPIKey.h.

For now – we will not use it later on – add some test code to the automatically generated view controller to see if the interface to Flickr works.

#import "FlickrFetcher.h"
- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];
    NSLog(@"%@", [FlickrFetcher stanfordPhotos]);

The complete code is available on github.
