With the Flickr Node.js library by Mike Kamermans, users can work with authenticated calls and obtain the API route to call methods from a server at no cost. Once the library is loaded, developers have the options to call API functions, call non authenticated functions, proxy the flickr API, upload photos to flickr, download data from flickr, and use flickr data into a different application.
Instagram is one of those early adopter favorites that quickly crossed the chasm to more mainstream users, at least within my social network. Take that popularity, mix it with an apparent desire to buy shirts, and it was inevitable that someone would use the Instagram API to create wearable mashups. In fact, there are at least three such services, each with its own twist.
The Bigstock API was built for Facebook applications, print on demand services website builders, ecommerce platforms and ad creation tools. You can use the API to perform five request types: search, categories, image detail, purchase, download, and light boxes & saved images.
