iCloud from command line

Dear Lazyweb,

Is there a way to upload a JPEG into an iCloud photo gallery from the command line on a Linux machine, without involving any OSX or iOS devices?

Pleas note the specificity of this question.

  1. No.

    iCloud has a public API but Photos and Photo Stream are not part of it.

      We use Apple TVs for our upcoming-show signage inside the club, and some dumbass made the mistake of "upgrading" them, and now the Flickr feed will never, ever delete images, even if they are no longer in the Flickr account. Using an iCloud feed instead of Flickr doesn't seem to have this bug, but it's impossible to automate. And since some of them are ATV3, which has not been jailbroken, it's impossible to downgrade them.

    I have used AppleScript to successfully put/remove pictures into an iPhoto album that is "iCloud-linked", but yeah pretty sucky that Apple didn't share that

  3. How about a giant hack? Some people are hijacking DNS to talk to their own servers for content.


  4. Would airstream be an alternative? airimg seems to have no trouble to throw pictures at the Apple TV.
