Access Last.fm from your Django site.

Project description

This is a small Django application that allows you to access Last.fm and embed e.g. your recently listened tracks or you top artists on your website.

Currently you can get your

  • recently listened tracks
  • weekly artist chart
  • top artists (for a definable period)

The application consists of two main parts: The first one is a view, that retrieves the data from Last.fm, processes it and returns it as a JSON encoded dict. The second one is a template tag that embeds some AJAX code into your website. This code will call the view and display the artist images or album covers. This mechanism prevents the Last.fm servers from slowing down your blazingly fast Django site … ;-)

Requirements

This app is tested with Django 1.1. It might also work with older versions, but I haven’t tested it.

If you want to run the tests, you’ll need to install Mock.

There are no other requirements.

Installation

If you read this, you have probably managed to extract the archive containing these files. Next, open a Terminal and cd to the directory containing this file (e.g. cd ~/Downloads/django-lastfm). Then execute:

python setup.py install

If you checked out the repository and always want to use the newest version, type:

pip install -e path/to/django-lastfm

Usage

The Documentation can be found in the docs/ directory or online.
