Display your current track on last.fm
This is a simple PHP function that will get your most recently played from Last FM and display:
- Track Name
- Artist Name
- Album Artwork
This is a simple drop-in function which will retrieve track info from the
recentracks endpoint. If you're currently playing a track, then this will reflect and change 'Last Played' to 'Currently Playing.
To use this, you'll need your last.fm username and API keys (which you can generate from here)
This function even supports fallback artwork - because I've found that some 'obscure' tracks don't have album artwork on last.fm.
I'm currently using this in the footer of my blog
