I wrote this quick library for aggregating analytics for my band, Operation ID. I want to track Last.fm, Twitter, and Myspace interactions over time, so that I can see how well our promotion campaigns are doing over time, over multiple social networks. You might want to do this too!
Coming soon: a small web app for storing/aggregating these stats.
To get up and running on Heroku in 5 minutes collecting stats for your band, check out my Rails app
Here are some usage examples for the supported services.
MusicianAnalytics::Lastfm.api_key = 'myapikey' stats = MusicianAnalytics::Lastfm.get_stats('Operation ID') puts stats['playcount'] puts stats['listeners']
stats = MusicianAnalytics::Twitter.get_stats('operationid') puts stats['followers_count'] puts stats['friends_count']
stats = MusicianAnalytics::Myspace.get_stats('operationid') puts stats['profile_views']
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
