Your playlist has been generated at: /Users/jon/Music/iTunes/Lastfm Top Tracks.m3u
Each artist in the library requires a separate API call to Lastfm to get the top tracks. As a result generation could several minutes or more if there are hundreds or thousands of artists to fetch.
It does not support tracks stored in the cloud. Haven't looked into whether this is possible or not. Feel free to send a pull request.
For convenience, lastfm credentials may be stored in ~/.config/lastfm-itunes.yml If that file exists, then it will auto-fill the Lastfm API key and secret.
