Short Description
SomaScrobbler is a server that scrobbles radio stations to one or more Last.fm acocunts.
Full Description

SomaScrobbler is a server that scrobbles SomaFM radio
stations to Last.fm. It relies on metadata provided by
an instance of SomaScrobbler
API
. It can handle multiple
Last.fm accounts at once.

Note: If you want to scrobble SomaFM radio from your desktop computer while
listening, I recommend checking the SomaPlayer Chrome
extension

by cheshire137. It's powered by the SomaScrobbler API.
If you want to write your own software that consumes SomaFM track data, just
like the SomaPlayer extension, please check out
api.somascrobbler.com .

Installation

  • Download and install Node.js or io.js. You should use a recent version.
  • Then install the somascrobbler package globally (-g) from npm. You
    may have to prefix the sommand with sudo depending on your setup.
npm install somascrobbler -g

Configuration

Create a config file "$HOME/.somascrobblerrc" or "/etc/somascrobblerrc",
or any other location supported by the rucola
module.

Here's a sample config file:

loglevel    =   info
datadir     =   ./data
trackapi    =   https://api.somascrobbler.com:443

[lastfm]
apikey      =   your_lastfm_api_key_123456789012
apisecret   =   your_lastfm_api_secret_097654321

[admin]
username    =   admin
password    =   secret

[server]
address     =   0.0.0.0
port        =   3000
uri         =   http://localhost:3000
  • loglevel (string; optional; default: info): The log level. Can be either
    "debug", "info", "warn", or "error".

  • datadir (string; optional; default: ./data): Path to a directory where
    SomaScrobbler will store account data.

  • trackapi (string; optional; default: https://api.somascrobbler.com:443):
    URL to the SomaScrobbler API endpoint including port.

  • lastfm.apikey (string; required): Your Last.fm API key.

  • lastfm.apisecret (string; required): Your Last.fm API secret.

  • admin.username (string; optional; default: admin): Username for the web
    interface.

  • admin.password (string; recommended; default: rompotaya): Password for
    the web interface. The default password is Vulcan for "maintenance". You
    should change this.

  • server.address (string; optional; default: 0.0.0.0): The IP of the
    interface the web server will listen on.

  • server.port (integer; optional; default: 3000): The port on which the
    web server will listen on.

  • server.uri (string; recommended; default: http://localhost:3000): The
    full public URI including port unless you're using port 80 for HTTP or 443
    for HTTPS. This is used as the callback URL for Last.fm authentication.

Configuration options can also be provided through environment variables. For
example, the valirable key for lastfm.apikey would be
SOMASCROBBLER_LASTFM_APIKEY.

Run

somascrobbler

Or provide an alternate config file:

somascrobbler --config=path/to/theconfig

Additionally, configuration options can be overridden through command-line
arguments:

somascrobbler --lastfm-apikey=your_lastfm_api_key_123456789012 ...

Visit the web interface under http://localhost:3000 (unless configured
differently) and log in using the credentials provided in the config file.

Click "Add account", select a SomaFM station and click "Authenticate". After
you have allowed SomaScrobbler to access your Last.fm profile it should start
scrobbling as soon as there's a new track.

Docker

SomaScrobbler is also available as a Docker image. It should work with Docker
1.5 or later.

Pull the image from the registry:

docker pull maxkueng/somascrobbler:latest

SomaScrobbler stores data about your Last.fm accounts in /usr/src/app/data
and provides access to it via volume which you should mount in order to create
backups and such. You should not override the dataDir configuration option in
this case.

To run it, provide all non-default configuration options as environment variables:

docker run -d \
  -p 3000:3000 \
  -e SOMASCROBBLER_LASTFM_APIKEY=your_lastfm_api_key_123456789012 \
  -e SOMASCROBBLER_LASTFM_APISECRET=your_lastfm_api_secret_097654321 \
  -e SOMASCROBBLER_SERVER_URI=http://localhost:3000 \
  -e SOMASCROBBLER_ADMIN_PASSWORD=topsecret \
  -v /path/to/somascrobbler/data:/usr/src/app/data \
  --restart on-failure \
  maxkueng/somascrobbler:latest

You can also mount an external config file instead of using environment
variables (or use a combination of both):

docker run -d \
  -p 3000:3000 \
  -v /path/to/somascrobbler/data:/usr/src/app/data \
  -v /path/to/the/config/file:/etc/somascrobblerrc \
  --restart on-failure \
  maxkueng/somascrobbler:latest
