This will fetch the Top Artists List for the given username from Last.fm. It makes use of the django.cache Framework. I use it with django 0.96.2. Enjoy!

Usage:

{% load lastfm %} {% lastfm_topartists YourName as topartists %} {% for artist in topartists %} {{ artist.thumbnail }}, {{ artist.name }}, {{ artist.url }}, {{ artist.playcount }} and so on {% endfor %}
