Indieweb::PostTypes::Identifier::Scrobble is a Ruby gem to extend Indieweb::PostTypes discovery to support my version of the scrobble post type.

The scrobble post type is not standardised, and this gem implements my own version of it, as used with my Micropub endpoint. The JSON I send when posting scrobbles is similar to the following:

  "type": [
  "properties": {
    "content": [
      "Go! - Public Service Broadcasting (The Race For Space)"
    "scrobble-of": [
        "type": ["h-cite"],
        "properties": {
          "title": ["Go!"],
          "artist": ["Public Service Broadcasting"],
          "album": ["The Race For Space"],
          "time": ["4:12"],
          "genre": ["Alternative"],
          "when": ["2018-04-19 13:11:33 UTC"]

If a standard emerges in the future for posting scrobbles I will update this gem to support it.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'indieweb-post_types-identifier-scrobble'

And then execute:

$ bundle


Once the gem is installed you need to configure Indieweb::PostTypes to use it. The following code would configure Indieweb::PostTypes to use the scrobble identifier before the default article identifier. You could also choose to insert the scrobble identifier before a different identifier if you so wish.

Indieweb::PostTypes.configure do |config|
  config.insert_identifier(klass: Indieweb::PostTypes::Identifier::Scrobble,
                           before: Indieweb::PostTypes::Identifier::Article)

Then just use Indieweb::PostTypes as normal...

post_type = Indieweb::PostTypes.type_from(data)


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install.
