Fixing Last.fm Tumblr with IFTTT

When Tumblr rolled out a new version of their site in July they broke the popular Last.fm Tumblr service by Joe Lazerus, for those of us who didn’t previously have it enabled. This made me sad. So using a new(ish) service called If This Then That, I fixed it!

What to do:

  1. Set your Last.fm tumblr feed up as previous, using Yahoo Pipes.
  2. Sign up to IFTTT. Activate the Tumblr and RSS channels.
  3. Copy this recipe, and enter the URL to your Yahoo Pipe RSS feed.
  4. Sit back and wait for Sunday.

I’m a developer living in Scotland. I work for an international IT Services company, with my main experience and current role being in the Oil & Gas sector. I also code PHP, JavaScript, a little Ruby, and I'm hoping to learn Clojure, Haskell and Python next. I've got a reasonable amount of experience in infrastructure, servers, and desktops. I'm fairly platform neutral, having used Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and WebOS over the years. Outside of work I have a passion for gadgets, technology, and geek culture.

    Wow! Thanks so much. It worked like a charm. And now I am using IFTTT for other things also. It is a pretty cool service. Thanks again for the tip….
