Biography view

A new component from the PSS/ELPlaylist/Library Tree developer
http://foo2k.chottu.net/



It searches informations (biography, artist picture, cover) about the playing file from your local last.fm server.

I'd like to see something like that doing it with wikipedia, though
But its a good starting point smile.gif

It looks very good, and I concur that Wiki would be nice. It misses a scroll function for longer text though:



Well it's still a young plug in, so thank you very much, developer.

Best would be an option to choose the server the infos should come from.

Yet another great plugin from this developer - thankyou smile.gif

I realise it's still young but I would like to see;
1) Scroll bars
2) A list of album and a list of artist sources. Selection would be from top to bottom. If no match then move to next source etc.
3) If used as an album art only - could we have the usual scaling\fit options

That's it for now - thanks again.

Why?
Most of the last.fm biographies are sourced from wikipedia:

QUOTE (last.fm wiki rules)
Please read the following before posting:
* Submitted content must not violate copyright. It's illegal to plagiarise someone else's biography of this artist.
* You can copy from Wikipedia, or any other GFDL-licensed source, provided that you enter the URL to the source in the sources box below.
* All submitted content remains copyright of the author, and is licensed under the GFDL.


I also would like to see scroll bars and some sort of option to set a limit size to images or scaling\fit options.

this component seems to work well with the default UI + foo_dockable panels. Many thanks, this is a great component! smile.gif

That's right. But I may like to see the whole biography not only a few lines of it wink.gif
And with all artists i now tried with this plugin enabled i only got a short "prologue"

unclick "short description" and you'll get full biography, but then you'll need really large panel as you can't scroll wink.gif

i'm really enjoying this component: album mode also fetches album descriptions! biggrin.gif

btw i think i found a bug:
- when the bios/descriptions are big the end of the last sentence gets cut-off by a few words...

I'm not sure it needs scrollbars, just for aesthetical reasons. Everyone is always asking if they can hide them, and now all of a sudden they want them! Maybe a link to the last.fm page (e.g. 'read more...') would work? I think this is the reason it can give a briefer description...

This is a great component though, thanks very much to the developer.

No not a scroll bar but scrolling option with the mouse wheel at least!
It works in ELPlaylist so it should also be possible in Biography view wink.gif

EDIT:
I noticed that it doesn't remembers the opacity value...

1. Would be great if you were able to store specified info in tags once they were downloaded.

2. Would be even greater if it were able to get the tags-cloud and do same as (1) with it wink.gif

Works beautifully. The mouse scroll works better than the scrollbar, didn't come to mind when I thought of that.
