Scrobbler for Maemo, now both on N900, and N9

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 🙂

Update

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 🙂
