As part of their complete site redesign in 2015, music tracking and recommendation service Last.fm wanted a way to show off some of the vast array of global music listening data from their users. We at Kerve designed a series of charts and widgets that would show off some of this data in an elegant and interesting way, and I was then responsible for building and implementing these interactive widgets into their new site.
I completed all front end development on the project, which involved getting to grips with their extensive site framework, and learning a few new technologies along the way. The widgets had to be responsive, informative and always up-to-date, so the team at Last.fm built us a series of custom API’s to integrate with, making it possible to do far more than we could with their standard API.
Following the successful launch of the new-look site, the live widgets have been a prominent staple of the site ever since.
