simple-lastfm

simple last.fm api for node.js

#Simple-Lastfm

A simple nodejs library to interface with the last.fm API

Installation

npm install simple-lastfm

Examples

First, you'll need to get an API key from last.fm: http://www.last.fm/api/account.

Once you have your API key and API secret, you'll need to generate a session key, after which you can then start to scrobble:

var Lastfm = require('simple-lastfm');

var lastfm = new Lastfm({
    api_key: 'xxx',
    api_secret: 'xxx',
    username: 'xxx',
    password: 'xxx',
    authToken: 'xxx' // Optional, you can use this instead of password, where authToken = md5(username + md5(password))
});

lastfm.getSessionKey(function(result) {
    console.log("session key = " + result.session_key);
    if(result.success) {
        lastfm.scrobbleNowPlayingTrack({
            artist: 'Ratatat',
            track: 'Seventeen Years',
            callback: function(result) {
                console.log("in callback, finished: ", result);
            }
        });
        lastfm.scrobbleTrack({
            artist: 'Bonobo',
            track: 'Black Sands',
            callback: function(result) {
                console.log("in callback, finished: ", result);
            }
        });
        lastfm.loveTrack({
            artist: 'Electrelane',
            track: 'Suitcase',
            callback: function(result) {
                console.log("in callback, finished: ", result);
            }
        });
        lastfm.unloveTrack({
            artist: 'something crap',
            track: 'no thanks',
            callback: function(result) {
                console.log("in callback, finished: ", result);
            }
        });
    } else {
        console.log("Error: " + result.error);
    }
});

#Documentation

init ( options )

options must be an object with the following required keys:

  • api_key
  • api_secret
  • username
  • password

Optional parameters:

  • session_key
  • debug

I recommend you save the session key and reuse it when possible. Debug should be true or false. By default it is false. Set it to true to have some console commands outputted.

getSessionKey ( callback )

callback: A function which receives a single object. On success, this object looks like:

{
        success: true,
        session_key: 'xxx'
    }

On failure:

{
        success: false,
        error: 'A text description of the error from last.fm'
    }

Note:Right now When a session key is successfully received, it automatically gets saved into the lastfm instance (in the above code, you could access it as lastfm.session_key)

addTrackTags ( options)

Require parameters:

  • artist
  • track
  • tags: A comma delimited list of user supplied tags to apply to this track. Accepts a maximum of 10 tags.
