jQuery Picasa Plugin Stream Picasa Albums without touching the Server.Here is the HTTP API for Picasa. There’s a lot to it, but all we need to do is list albums and list photos. And we want to do this using Google’s experimental Data API feature of course, the Partial Response. The Partial Response allows us to limit the information the feed returns to us, which means significant performance improvement. For example, if all we want are the image urls, we don’t need thumbs, titles, descriptions, and the author. We can cut out 80% of the feed’s size. That’s awesome. Still waiting for Google Docs to have that.

The goal is to stream photos without ever having to touch your server. Aka, no PHP or Ruby proxy. Reason being, what if your pages are entirely static (Github Pages!), and you want it to work the same as if they were dynamic? The code should be all Javascript.
