Provides tools for programmer/musicians to quickly collect stats about their band.
Latest commit 31f7605 @dbalatero Added README update.



I wrote this quick library for aggregating analytics for my band, Operation ID. I want to track, 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.
