Description

A plugin for Amarok 1 and 2 that updates your Pidgin status message with what you are currently listening to.

If you want to update your Gaim status message, look for the AmarokGaim package.

Dependencies

Configuration

Variable Map

All variables that go in the STATUS_MESSAGE can now be filtered by a user supplied function. This is done using the configuration options variable_map and variable_imports. variable_map is a function which accepts 2 strings (Variable, Value) and returns a string. variable_imports runs possible imports required for variable_map.

Examples

  • Quote

    variable_map = lambda x,y : y and ("'"+y+"'") or ''
    
  • Unknown String

    variable_map = lambda x,y : y or ("Unknown " + x.capitalize())
    
  • iPodify strings

    variable_map = lambda x,y : ' '.join(['i' + s.capitalize() for s in y.split()])
    

Amarok 2

AmarokPidgin now has rudimentary Amarok 2 support. It does not support many of the variables, updating your buddy icon and configuration from Amarok. To configure you have to edit AmarokPidgin.ini, which can be found in ~/.kde/share/apps/amarok/scripts/AmarokPidgin.
