Multi-threaded uploader for Flickr

Project description


Flickr CLI multi-threaded uploader, can resume uploads on failures.

Now that Flickr gives everyone 1TB of space, it’s very handy to store all your original photos there. This tool helps upload lots of files to Flickr at once.


You can install flickruper with

pip install flickruper

If you don’t have pip, you can install it with this command on Debian/Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install python-pip

If not on Debian/Ubuntu, follow the instructions here


flickruper uploads a single directory at once, without recursion into subdirectories. It cannot upload a single file or several files. This may change in the future.

First, place all your photos inside a dir, and, optionally, rename it to how you want your resulting Flickr set to be named.

Then just

flickruper DIRNAME

If the set exists, it won’t upload the same file several times.

If you want tags, and/or other set name, do

flickruper DIRNAME --setname 'Custom set name' --tags 'Tag1 Tag2'

See –help for other options

flickruper --help


At first launch, flickruper requires a browser to get a token. If you want to use it on a headless server, launch it first on your desktop, get the token, and copy the ~/.flickr directory to your server.
