pip install requests
Next, add your Last.fm username to your beets configuration file:
lastfm: user: beetsfanatic
Importing Play Counts¶
Simply run beet lastimport and wait for the plugin to request tracks from Last.fm and match them to your beets library. (You will be notified of tracks in your Last.fm profile that do not match any songs in your library.)
Then, your matched tracks will be populated with the play_count field, which you can use in any query or template. For example:
$ beet ls -f '$title: $play_count' play_count:5.. Eple (Melody A.M.): 60
To see more information (namely, the specific play counts for matched tracks), use the -v option.
Aside from the required lastfm.user field, this plugin has some specific options under the lastimport: section:
- per_page: The number of tracks to request from the API at once. Default: 500.
- retry_limit: How many times should we re-send requests to Last.fm on failure? Default: 3.
