lastfmclient

Python client for the Last.fm API with a pythonic interface. Also includes an async variant of the client for Tornado.

Usage

Regular

from lastfmclient import LastfmClient

api = LastfmClient(
    api_key=KEY,
    api_secret=SECRET,
    session_key=session_key
)

resp = api.track.update_now_playing(
    track='Paranoid Android',
    artist='Radiohead',
    album='OK Computer',
)

print resp

Asynchronous (uses tornado.httpclient.AsyncHTTPClient)

import tornado.web
import tornado.gen
from lastfmclient.async import AsyncLastfmClient

class Scrobbler(tornado.web.RequestHandler):

    @tornado.gen.coroutine
    def post(self):
        api = AsyncLastfmClient(
            api_key=KEY,
            api_secret=SECRET,
            session_key=session_key
        )

        resp = yield api.track.update_now_playing(
            track='Paranoid Android',
            artist='Radiohead',
            album='OK Computer',
        )
        self.finish(resp)

Client methods

All the methods the Last.fm API provides are mirrored in the client with rich docstrings and arguments description. This code is actually generated directly from the online API documentation pages (see ./generate.py, ./api.json, and ./lastfmclient/api.py).

The defined methods be updated to the current version of the documentation via:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt lxml

# 1. Generate fresh api.json from docs at http://www.last.fm/api:
$ make spec

# 2. Generate `lastfm/api.py` from `api.json`:
$ make code

# Or, all the above in one step:
$ make
