From the lab: Last.FM for jQuery

Roughly a 1 minute read from Will

16 Jun 2009

To celebrate the opening of our brand new labs section we thought we'd share with you our little widget to display your Last.FM tracks on your website using jQuery.

Last.FM has a very extensive API, many applications use it, but whilst scouring the web the other day looking for a simple jQuery implementation we just couldn't find one that was lightweight and easily customisable. So we thought we'd write our own plug-in!

Using Json, the plug-in grabs data from the API and then - in a structure you define - places it on your website. The styling and layout is left completely up to you!

Let us know what you think, or ask any questions you may have in the comments bellow.
