Simple, robust LastFM API client (for public data)

Install

npm install last-fm

Why this package?

The most useful data on LastFM is the public music data. When building an app that incorporates music data from LastFM, lots of functionality provided by the LastFM API isn't necessary – authorizing as a user, liking tracks, adding/removing tags, getting a list of songs in the user's "library", etc.

This package only provides the LastFM API methods that use GET requests to fetch data, making it smaller and simpler than the other LastFM libraries.

If this matches your use case, consider using this package.

Features

  • Powered by the LastFM API
  • Lightweight library, only provides the GET methods from the Last.fm API

Usage

First, get an API key from Last.fm.

const LastFM = require('last-fm')
const lastfm = new LastFM('API_KEY', { userAgent: 'MyApp/1.0.0 (http://example.com)' })

lastfm.trackSearch({ q: 'the greatest' }, (err, data) => {
  if (err) console.error(err)
  else console.log(data)
})

API

lastfm = new LastFM(key, [opts])

Create a new LastFM API client with the given public API key.

Since all the LastFM calls supported by this module access public data, the secret key is not required.

If opts is provided, it can contain the following options:

  • opts.userAgent - String to use as the User-Agent header in http requests
  • opts.minArtistListeners - Exclude artist results with fewer than this number of "listeners" (default: 0)
  • opts.minTrackListeners - Exclude track results with fewer than this number of "listeners" (default: 0)

Note: Unfortunately, there is no opts.minAlbumListeners since the Last.fm API does not include listener numbers in album results (even though the data exists when you get an individual album via lastfm.albumInfo)

Convenience API

These APIs are not part of the LastFM documentation, but they use data from the API and process it into a more useful form.

lastfm.search(opts, (err, data) => {})

Search for artists, tracks, or albums by name. (album.search, artist.search, track.search)

This returns the "top result" across all result types, prioritizing an exact query match, if one exists. Otherwise, the most popular result by number of "listeners" is used.

  • opts.q - the search query
  • opts.limit - the number of each type of result to fetch
