Update for Last.FM tag importer

beaTunes2 logoThis is a small update for the Last.FM tag plugin... Couple of things got fixed. E.g. in some cases all tags were imported.

  • Binary plugin - just place into beaTunes' plugin folder (make sure to remove the old version!)
  • Source code - Maven2 project

Please see this posting to find out how to install the plugin.

Also, please note that the code is licensed under LGPL - so you are free to use it pretty much any way you want, modify it, make it better etc. The only thing that's missing from the source is the Last.fm API key - you would have to get your own. If you have any questions about the code, please contact me!

Update

Because it's been asked - this is how you change the number of tags that are included:

  • install Maven2
  • download the source code for the plugin from the news blog
  • edit the file LastFMTopThreeTags.java, line 236 (if (tags.size() >= 3) {) - you simply have to increase that number
  • make sure you enter a valid HTTP user agent and a valid Last.FM API key at the top of the file (there are comments telling you where)
  • build it with mvn clean install
  • the build result will be in the target subdirectory

And of course it always helps to read the README.txt file :-)

Please discuss possible problems in the (still quite new and empty) Plugins Forum.

Thanks!
