Version 2.0 finally moved to Fremantle stable, so everybody can start using it 🙂
If you are not familiar with it, this package will see what music you are listening on Maemo devices, and scrobble to your favorite service, either last.fm, libre.fm, or both.
I already explained the features in an earlier blog entry, along with an explanation of how to make use of the “love” feature.
But now I also managed to port this to Harmattan, and it works perfectly on my Nokia N9. Interestingly enough, the new UI has a “favorite” feature directly integrated, it took me some time, as it’s not publicly documented, but I finally managed to hook into it, so everything works seamlessly 🙂
I was rather impressed by how easy it was to port it, I was able to leave all the GLib bits intact, even libsoup is still supported, and libconio, so I only had to make changes regarding the new qmafw. Thanks to the Qt guys for using the GLib’s mainloop by default, it certainly made things easier for me 🙂
You can find a debian package here: maemo-scrobbler 2.0-2.
Then, you would need to create a file
~/.config/scrobbler like this:
[lastfm] username=foo password=bar [librefm] username=foo password=bar
That’s it 🙂
