C* Music Player Audioscrobbler/Last.fm patch

Frank Terbeck wrote a patch for cmus that adds support for Audioscrobbler/Last.fm, then it was taken up by Clay Barnes for a time, with the hopes of importing it into mainline. This never happened and it once again fell by the wayside. I have updated it for my own use, and uploaded it to github in the hopes that it may one day make it to cmus mainline.

Installation

Get a current copy of the cmus git repository to patch:

git clone git://gitorious.org/cmus/cmus.git && cd cmus

Patch the cmus tree:

patch < ../cmus-audioscrobbler/cmus-as.patch

The build / install cmus as usual:

./configure && make && su -c 'make install'

Usage

It's pretty simple. Just add these lines to your ~/.cmus/rc file:

set as_enable=true
set as_user=(Your Last.fm Username)
set as_pass=(Your Last.fm Password)

Alternatively, just type them as ":set" commands in cmus.

Toggling listening statistics reporting off/on is accomplished by ":set as_enable=false"/"set as_enable=true" respectively.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
