A few months ago a friend of mine was working on a website for a client that needed an image gallery. My friend is fairly new to web development so he wasn't sure about the best way to approach this. He finally decided that he wanted a simple gallery, that pulled the photos from Flickr and wanted jQuery to power it. He found some jQuery plugins that existed already, but they were all over-kill or he could not get them to work. When he told me about his problems I took a look at the Flickr API and told him that it would be a piece of cake to make your own plugin, and that is just what I did.
Simplr Gallery Is Born
I decided to develop a down and dirty jQuery plugin that pulls what ever Flickr photo set you feed it. I did build in some options, but also tried to leave it open enough so the developer could style or do what they wanted with it.
This Is Great! But Where Can I Get This Plugin?
You can find more information on this plugin was well as the link to download it on the plugin's page.
