Last.FM for Umbraco

This has been confirmed to work with version 4.5 of Umbraco


This package allows you to display your recently played tracks from the Last.FM service. This can be tracks listened to directly on the Last.FM website, or through your media player such as iTunes (with a plugin) or services like spotify.com which scrobble tracks back to your Last.FM profile.

This package is just a nice simple XSLT macro with a CSS file and a few images to apply a vinyl cover look to the album covers when outputting your tracks, but it being XSLT you can fully customise the XHTML markup to your needs.

  2. Login to your umbraco install and goto the developer section
  3. Expand the packages folder
  4. Select install local package and point to zip file you just downloaded
  5. Wait for the install to finish
  6. Insert the [XSLT] CWS - Last.FM macro into your template
  7. Fill in your username and the number of tracks to display in the parameters for the macro
  8. Add the CSS reference to you <head> of your template
  9. VOILA - Your done !

  • XSLT/CWS_LastFM.xslt
  • CSS/CWS_lastFM.css
