Description:

Stream music from SoundCloud®

* Log in to your account by going to Tools > Log in/out of SoundCloud. RESTART AMAROK AFTER LOGGING IN. You will then see information from your account when the search bar is blank.
* Favorite tracks (when logged in) by going to Tools > Favorite/unfavorite Current Track on SoundCloud
* Follow artists (when logged in) by going to Tools > Follow/unfollow Current Artist on SoundCloud
* Search for an artist entering their name in the search bar
* Search for a track by entering 'track ' in the search bar before the track name
* Search for a playlist by entering 'playlist ' in the search bar before the playlist name
* Search for a group by entering 'group ' in the search bar before the group name
* If using Amarok 2.8-git, then you can drag & drop users and groups from the collection tree to the search bar. Doing this in Amarok 2.8 will cause the collection tree to go blank, although you can keep using the script by clearing the search bar

Please report bugs and share your suggestions in the comments here.

Known issues:
* Amarok automatically sorts everything alphabetically for service scripts, even though SoundCloud returns search results sorted by relevance and playlists in order. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342090
* Cannot drag & drop users and groups into Amarok's playlist. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342104
* Child items are inserted under the wrong parent when trying to expand multiple parents simultaneously. This is apparent when there are only a few search results and Amarok tries to get the child items for all of them at the same time. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342542
* Cannot search for users and groups with a colon in their name. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342091
* Tracks are shown to have a duration of 0:00 in Amarok's playlist. See https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=342097
* No way to follow users who do not have any published tracks from within Amarok
* SoundCloud sometimes returns different search results for the same search terms. This is an issue with SoundCloud, not this script

Hi, sorry but this script is 2.5 years old and no longer maintained. It is likely that SoundCloud has changed their API in an incompatible way since I published this. It would probably take a bit of work to update it to whatever changes they have made in their API since then. I'm personally not really interested in SoundCloud anymore and won't be maintaining this, but if you update the script, let me know and I'd be happy to post the updated script here.
