As it currently stands there is no OS independent way to extract all of the photos from your meetup group. There are other projects that run on Windows, but nothing written in Java. Under meetup they don’t offer the ability to export all of the photos.  This short script is used to gather all of the photos in your group and download them into your local file system via the information provided by the Meetup API.

What technologies are used?

  •          Groovy and the RESTClient (It’s fairly simple)

For the most part this was a fairly simple project that could be finished in a lunch or two. That is only the case if you already have experience with the Meetup API. It was a pretty simple thing to write. Only thing that I found unique/learned with this project was that you can write to an output stream via the left shift operator.
