iTunes Blog Integration

Since this website also serves as a technology playground, I’ve recently integrated iTunes reporting. You can see both the currently playing track in my local iTunes, as well as a listing of the last 30 recently played tunes. Neat.

How is this done? I’d love to tell you it’s based on a CORBA ORB that I single-handedly conceived and integrated with a SOAP/XML-RPC interface running on my blog — but, those who know me would KNOW I’m lying. So I’ll fess’ up — Most of the work is done with a little MacOS X utility called Kung-Tunes.

    Thought you might be interested in my Laszlo-based recent tunes displayer. I use Kung-Tunes to upload my track info as OPML which is displayed in my little pTunes widget. If you look at the source, you’ll see that the widget is parameterized so anyone can use it.

    This sounds great! I can’t figure out how to get it to work though, especially as I don’t see the link you referred to at the Kung-Tunes site… Any help gratefully received! 🙂
