Photobucket Actionscript Client Library for use with Photobucket's open REST API.

This Library is designed to mirror objects on the Photobucket servers. There are user, album and media objects that can be used to retrieve and manipulate those objects. All the objects are capable of lazy loading themselves as new data is requested. Often if you make changes you must call the commit method on these objects to save the changes. This is done to try and limit unnecessary calls to the API.

You can get a developer key at:

This library includes a working OAuth Library for signing requests that can be used independent of the Photobucket API.

The project depends on the as3crypto library that be found at

It is recommended that you use the source directly from Subversion as the swc's are not always kept as current.
