jquery.last.fm

A jQuery plugin that populates the given element with album artwork from the last.fm api. Check out a demo on the official project page.

Usage:

$('.albums').lfm({
	APIkey:   null,     // [string] required in order to retrieve content from last.fm
	User:     null,     // [string] required username to retrieve data for
	Behavior: "hover",  // [string] optional controls detail content behavior. can be changed to 'click'
	limit:    20,       // [integer] optional the number of albums you'd like to show. max of 50
	period:   "3month"  // [string] (overall | 7day | 1month | 3month | 6month | 12month) optional the period of time for which to retrieve top albums
});

Don't forget to include either style.css or style.scss to get started. If you'd like to do development directly out of this repo you'll need to create a main.js (gitignored) with code formatted as above.

If you'd like to get started without an API key or user to pull from, you can comment out the var url line and uncomment the subsequent one to use serverFixture.json. Due to cross domain security restrictions in modern browsers, you'll need to spin up a http server. Given python installed on your system (it comes with mac os) you can run ./bin/server on the command line to spin up a simple server at http://localhost:4444.

If developing right in the repo you'll need to bring your own sass precompiler. I use livereload.
