In fact, I asked you, I know you have the skills
Quote from: antonyb on 18 March, 2013, 04:58:00 PMIn fact, I asked you, I know you have the skillsactually i don't. scraping data from websites is much harder (at least to me) than using the documented webservices such as those provided by last.fm or the echonest.BTW, i used the alphabetical shortcuts on the page to look up all artists beginning with the letter R. do you know how many there are? 29. sorry but nobody is going to write a bespoke script for a site like that. my only suggestion is to manually copy/paste the text into text files which my simple text reader script for WSH panel mod can then read and display in a panel. it supports title formatting so just dump the text file somewhere in your music folders and configure the script accordingly.
my musicbrainz and discogs release scripts have clickable links taking you to the release page of new albums (assuming they've been added to those sites of course). they check for updates once a week (not automatically but when you select an artist and the cached data is over a week old). that doesn't mean to say the biographies on any given site will be updated but at least it's an easier way to check for new stuff.
you guys are helpless
"C:\Program Files\Saxonica\SaxonHE9.4N\bin\Transform.exe" -s:foo_allmusic.xml -xsl:foo_allmusic.xsl
why would you want to match text from reviews/bios? What is your scenario?
my WSH panel mod scripts are in here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/22801321/samples.zipplease check the readme carefully.recent screenshot of my musicbrainz script here. (that's 2 instances showing off its different modes)the discogs script looks exactly the same as the panel on the left except the source is obviously different. newest releases are displayed first. clicking the text links opens your browser where you can find more release information and track listings.
if you're talking about this component's ability to run scripts in order until it finds some content then no. mine won't do that. also, i don't have an AMG script so you'd have to stick with biography view for that anyway.
- are they all run in sequence (from top one to bottom one)
Edit: Sooner than later, here is 6 line vbscript that renders as expected full last.fm bio: https://gist.github.com/aa2ada8bdc93144abd03
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

works flawlessly here... also darkone skin. Have you made sure the script is placed in foobar's root folder?
Is there any way to make it stream more than 6 artist pictures?
@foomark: maybe try with absolute path to script file: `cscript //nologo "c:\...\lastfm_bio.vbs" ...`
