We are proud and happy to announce the birth of a bouncing baby API (Application Programming Interface) for third-party developers to extend Phanfare.
If you are geeky enough to try, you can extend Phanfare to do useful things that we have not thought of or simply have not gotten to yet. We have created some example Phanfare widgets, including a badge that can pull your newest images into a third party website, like a blog, and a little widget that shows your most recently created album on your blog.
We are also working on a Windows screensaver that pulls images from a Phanfare account and there is someone in the community working on an Aperture plugin for pushing images from Apple’s Aperture program to a Phanfare account.
Before you can get started using the API, you will need to request an API key.
We are excited to see what the community comes up with. We have even created a wishlist of widgets that we hope somebody builds.
