Free Monstercat FM Song to textfile 1.0.3

I found no easy way of getting the current song playing at twitch.tv/monstercat, so I decided to write a little utility that parses what the monstercat bot says in the chat.

Currently it can:
  • Save the current song to a text file
  • Download the album art for the current song
Both of these are useful if you are a streamer and want to display the current song in a clean way while listening to the Monstercat Twitch channel. You can simply create a text source pointing to the text file generated by this tool.

You can find the source code at: https://github.com/Ineentho/mcfm-tools

It's quite easy to install it, but first you need to have nodejs installed.

When you have node installed, open a terminal and write
Code:
npm install -g mcfm

Now mcfm should be installed, but it will require a oauth token for accessing the chat as your user. In order to get one, you can use http://twitchapps.com/tmi/.

When you got your token, you can see one of the examples at the project page I posed earlier. For example, in order to both download the album art and save the current song to a text file, you can do (of course, changing my login details):

Code:
mcfm -u Ineentho -o oauth:f9ehfrsc0ws24nlqgsbcaasoaqf25x -f current-song.txt -F "{song} by {artist}" -A albumart.png

This plugin should work on all platforms that nodejs runs on (Windows/Mac/Linux/...)

I hope you find it useful!
