Remote Scripting with JSONP and jQuery

Using JSONP allows for cross-domain HTTP GET requests. The following code uses jQuery to call the Flickr API for a list of photos returned in JSON.

<div id="photos"></div>
    type: 'GET',
    url: '',
    dataType: 'jsonp',
    success: function(data){
        $.each(data.items, function(i, item){
NOTE: Updating is also possible using a GET request, but limited to around 2000 characters for some browsers and not recommended.
