NAME ^

Net::LastFM - A simple interface to the Last.fm API

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $lastfm = Net::LastFM->new(
      api_key    => 'XXX',
      api_secret => 'YYY',
  );
  my $data = $lastfm->request_signed(
      method => 'user.getRecentTracks',
      user   => 'lglb',
  );

DESCRIPTION ^

The module provides a simple interface to the Last.fm API. To use this module, you must first sign up at http://www.last.fm/api to receive an API key and secret.

You can then make requests on the API - most of the requests are signed. You pass in a hash of paramters and a data structure mirroring the response is returned.

This module confesses if there is an error.

METHODS ^

request

This makes an unsigned request:

  my $data = $lastfm->request( method => 'auth.gettoken' );

request_signed

This makes a signed request:

  my $data = $lastfm->request_signed(
      method => 'user.getRecentTracks',
      user   => 'lglb',
  );

create_http_request

If you want to integrate this module into another HTTP framework, this method will simple create an unsigned HTTP::Request object:

  my $http_request = $lastfm->create_http_request(
      method => 'auth.gettoken'
  );

create_http_request_signed

If you want to integrate this module into another HTTP framework, this method will simple create a signed HTTP::Request object:

  my $http_request = $lastfm->create_http_request_signed(
      method => 'user.getRecentTracks',
      user   => 'lglb',
  );
