Scrobbler

Scrobbler is a wrapper for the audioscrobbler web services (www.audioscrobbler.net/data/webservices/).

Currently updating to use the 2.0 API. It is very much a work in progress.

Below is just a sampling of how easy this lib is to use, full documentation of all functions is available at rdoc.info/projects/xhochy/scrobbler

Initialization

Scrobbler::Base.api_key = 'foo123'

Users

user = Scrobbler::User.new('jnunemaker')

puts “#useruser.username's Recent Tracks” puts “=” * (user.username.length + 16) user.recent_tracks.each { |t| puts t.name }

puts puts

puts “#useruser.username's Top Tracks” puts “=” * (user.username.length + 13) user.top_tracks.each { |t| puts “(#tt.playcount) #tt.name” }

Albums

album = Scrobbler::Album.new('Carrie Underwood', 'Some Hearts', :include_info => true)

puts “Album: #albumalbum.name” puts “Artist: #albumalbum.artist” puts “Reach: #albumalbum.reach” puts “URL: #albumalbum.url” puts “Release Date: #albumalbum.release_datealbum.release_date.strftime('%m/%d/%Y')”

puts puts

puts “Tracks” longest_track_name = album.tracks.collect(&:name).sort { |x, y| y.length <=> x.length }.first.length puts “=” * longest_track_name album.tracks.each { |t| puts t.name }

Artists

artist = Scrobbler::Artist.new('Carrie Underwood')

puts 'Top Tracks' puts “=” * 10 artist.top_tracks.each { |t| puts “(#tt.reach) #tt.name” }

puts

puts 'Similar Artists' puts “=” * 15 artist.similar.each { |a| puts “(#aa.match%) #aa.name” }

Tags

tag = Scrobbler::Tag.new('country')

puts 'Top Albums' tag.top_albums.each { |a| puts “(#aa.count) #aa.name by #aa.artist” }

puts

puts 'Top Tracks' tag.top_tracks.each { |t| puts “(#tt.count) #tt.name by #tt.artist” }

Tracks

track = Scrobbler::Track.new('Carrie Underwood', 'Before He Cheats') puts 'Fans' puts “=” * 4 track.fans.each { |u| puts “(#uu.weight) #uu.username” }

Simple Authentication (for Scrobbling)

auth = Scrobbler::SimpleAuth.new(:user => 'chunky', :password => 'bacon')
auth.handshake!

puts "Auth Status: #{auth.status}"
puts "Session ID: #{auth.session_id}"
puts "Now Playing URL: #{auth.now_playing_url}"
puts "Submission URL: #{auth.submission_url}"

Scrobbling

scrobble = Scrobbler::Scrobble.new(:session_id => auth.session_id,
                                   :submission_url => auth.submission_url,
                                   :artist => 'Coldplay',
                                   :track => 'Viva La Vida',
                                   :album => "Viva La Vida",
                                   :time => Time.new,
                                   :length => 244,
                                   :track_number => 7)
scrobble.submit!
puts "Scrobbler Submission Status: #{scrobble.status}"

Now Playing Submission

playing = Scrobbler::Playing.new(:session_id => auth.session_id,
                                 :now_playing_url => auth.now_playing_url,

                                 :length => 218,
                                 :track_number => 1)

playing.submit!         
puts "Playing Submission Status: #{playing.status}"
