CFlickr is an API Kit for Coldfusion, it wraps the Flickr's REST API making it even easier to use within your CFML code.

CFlickr version 2 does away with the numerous cfcs used inthe original version and the one-to-one mapping of methods in the interfaces. Instead version 2 now uses onMissingMethod to dynamically call methods of Flickrs API and receives a response in JSON format which is then deserialized and returned directly.

This simple approach has a few advantages and disadvantages

* Extremely lightweight, no longer need to instantiate multiple cfc's to represent a api response
* Very easy to work with returned data, everything is represented as Coldfusion Structs, Arrays and Strings.
* CFlickr.cfc can now be placed anywhere in your application, no more need for mappings or installation in the webroot

* You must always used named arguments to your method calls, for exmaple cflickr.auth_getToken(frob='1234')
