Yahoo just launched a new portal site dedicated to Flickr development on code.flickr.com. The site more or less aggregates content from the Flickr API group as well as a new developer blog. Besides that it also comes with a Trac installation (not all that completely set up yet, though) which I guess will be used for 1st party applications like the Uploadr.
Somehow the whole site looks remarkably unfinished considering that its already announced on the official mailing-list yesterday evening. For instance besides Trac just sitting there, there is also a really weird bug in the CSS when hovering a timeline item.
But don’t get me wrong: I like the idea of offering such a portal to the community, but I was a little bit surprised that it was announced that early. At least configuring Trac to have Uploadr as a component instead of the default “component1” and “component2” would have been nice :-)
I’m also not quite sure yet, what the point is with logging in using your Flickr account … from what I can tell, the login isn’t integrated with the Trac installation and seems to be the only interactive part of the site …
That said, I’m really curious what this site will be used for. Is perhaps Yahoo working on some more 1st party applications for Flickr? ;-)
