or, How I Got to Become a Firefox Extension Developer. 🙂
What’s that ?
Getting tired of typing [-a-r-t-i-s-t-] etc… on last.fm‘s journals & forums for the nth time, I quickly hacked another Firefox extension I was using, BBCodeXtra, to make last.fmCode.
It allows you select a type & select a string (“mll” for instance) and right-click>last.fmCode>User and you get “[user]mll[/user]”. Idem for an artist name, a tag name etc… You can play with the clipboard submenu too, and also the eXtra one.
I left the BBCode there, so bolding, making links, changing colors, etc. just need a few clicks.

OK, I just took the time to try Greasemonkey, and it’s cool as I expected. I started fiddling whith some scripts downloaded at the -well made- central greasemonkey scripts repository, and made the following:
- Last.fm with Google
- Last.fm with Amazon
- Last.fm with Allmusic
- Last.fm titles with Google
- Last.fm titles with Allmusic
You may download them on userscripts.org.
I’m quite happy with them now (though Amazon clutters the charts a tad too much IMHO).
Many thanks to kepp for his help in tracking the glitches & providing solutions.
