New Flickr API Output Format: LOL

Looks like there is a new Flickr API output format: LOL. Not my work, no idea who built this, but I really like it.

Here’s an example of returned data (?tags=cats&format=lol):

Grab the data as usual, the format attribute is lol, apparently.

So… If you always thought about teaching your cat how to parse Flickr data, now might be the right time to jump in. Progress!
