I encoded ampersand, thanks Marc
so after all that, mire777 still hasn't wrapped the artist in double quotes. i guess i should pay more attention.
Quote from: marc2003 on 20 February, 2013, 06:04:34 AMthey are there in the wikipedia segment but not the last.fm...After seeing the content in biography view processed with xmllint, it seems like they use new lines on last.fm contents to format additional information, like History, Musical style etc., while biography text new lines are stripped. These stripped new lines can be "recovered" by replacing dot followed by two spaces with dot followed by two CRLF, i.e ". " -> ".\r\n\r\n". I'll do that later today and provide script, as there is no "sed" equivalent on Windows.Edit: Sooner than later, here is 6 line vbscript that renders as expected full last.fm bio: https://gist.github.com/aa2ada8bdc93144abd03How to use it (if script is placed in foobar root folder):
they are there in the wikipedia segment but not the last.fm...
Step by step walkthrough:1. download the script from provided link and save it in foobar's folder2. In foobar's preferences navigate to "Biography Server" page and from "Available source list" listbox, add "Run External Script" item to the "Current source list" list box. Move it to the top with the "Up" button3. In foobar's preferences "Run External Script" page, in Artist tab, type exactly what you see in quoted image
that won't happen. the component itself is closed source and all the image stuff is done internally.the developer has not been seen in a long time.
I understand, it would take a foo with a site like this http://www.enjoyyourstay.net/biografia-Renato_Zero-7463.htmlOr some other solution.thanks
This site does not use the last.fm biography, and that's what we want to use. if you want you can use already built in wikipedia and set your language there in: preferences>tools>biography server>wikipediafor now it's not possible to change language for last.fm with echonest, but it probably will be possible in the future..
you could scrape data from just about any site if you have the skills. romor has already proven this with his allmusic script. but whether anyone would want to tackle that particular site is another matter entirely.
