code & download:
web service (down):

scaicha is a script to generate a pie chart of top artist tags similar to OMI. It is open source and written by scaidermern and Daemon_Hell.

The scaicha score is a number showing how broad your music taste is. Maximum scaicha score is 150.

Note: currently the web service is not available, charts have to be generated manually. See the installation instructions.

    UPDATE, folks. Since I run a vServer by now, I decided to bring this service back. At this moment I managed to get it up and running, but since I need to secure my box first, please be patient. This is just an announcement - Give me 4 weeks, and we'll see. *HAPPY*

    Also, thanks so much for sharing the script and keeping it alive!

    For those on Python 3, use the python2.7 compatibility mode to run the script!

    More detailed installation instructions (including Windows!) can be found in the forum and on the project page.

    The web service is down, so you have to generate it yourself. This is somewhat complicated when using Windows, but rather easy on Linux.

    So, how can I put my scaicha score on my profile again?

    I have no detailed overview, how the program code works ... you have to sum "manually" after the download some of the tags (maybe you can ask the user scaidermern, who is the creator of the scaicha-code...) (

    Maybe anybody knows how to combine the same tags? Classical+baroque, for example.

    It isn't so good way to using scaicha under windows: you get unsolvable problems with banned punctuation marks on this platform. I had upgraded to CentOS 6, and scaicha works extremly nice!

    hmm yeah maybe there are a lot of problems with punctuation marks (.:,;?!) and special characters ("§$%&/()=…....)

    lastfm returns per default 50 artists ( but you can change this in file "" from APT_URL ""; to"";. do the same for the TAG_URL. CONCLUSION: just add "&limit=100" to the APT_URL and TAG_URL in (for 100 user...)

    So it no longer works as a link, now requiring much more user participation? That's a shame for those of us wanting to kick back....

    Answering my own question (thanks avukado): You have to edit the at line 138 and 144 and append ".encode("utf-8") to the entry[0] variable: New line 138: if not CGI: print "downloading tag data for", entry[0].encode("utf-8") New line 144: elif not CGI: print 'using tag data for', entry[0].encode("utf-8"), 'from cache'

    Hi everybody! I'm desperately trying to run scaicha via cronjob, but it always quits with errors, when it comes to somehow special characters (german umlauts or japanese characters). Already changed the LANG, LC_CTYPE, LANGUAGE and even LC_ALL to "de_DE.UTF-8" (and checked it - it IS at utf8..) But it's still not working. When running manually vial shell, everything's fine.. :/ Can anyone help?
