Project Summary

Version .07 ReleasediTunesBlogger is a utility to track what is being played in iTunes and post information about each track (e.g. track name, artist, etc.) to a web script, or to the clipboard via a hotkey.

Updating your web site requires that your web site or blog contains a script which can receive the current track information. Some sample scripts are included below. The URL used for updating your web site is configurable, allowing you the flexibility you need without the hassle of writing your own iTunes interface.

Alternatively, you can use iTunesBlogger to easily paste 'Now Playing' text into your favorite applications, giving easy access to the current song to instant messaging and blog updating programs. Simply configure iTunesBlogger with your desired keyboard shortcut (e.g. Alt-Shift-S), and every time you hit the shortcut, the track information will be copied into the clipboard, so that you can paste it into another program.
