Hey guys, I'm sorry if this sounds snobby or elitist, it's a program I'm obviously interested in, but there's absolutely zero chance of me installing a non-native program on my Mac. I don't do "ports" of stuff, particularly when they rely on an extra install, third-party, non-Mac-native framework I've never heard of.

I don't even run Java apps on my system. Too messy.

I hope you'll consider writing a native Mac version, or helping a Mac programmer partner to do that for you. It's obviously a very nice concept for a program.

Version 1.4b

TheLastRipper is free open source software the project page can be found here:

Note: Please join and continue this discussion on our mailing list:
(I'm not a frequent user of MacUpdate).

Anyway, TheLastRipper project is missing an OS X developer. We do have a Cocoa# port of TheLastRipper however it needs to be updated, which we have no developer to do... I'm pretty sure that mono could be included in the .app bundle, so that users need not install mono...
However, we don't have an OS X developer how can do that... Actually none of the developers run OS X... This port is quick and dirty bundle of the Windows version that can run under mono...

If you wish to re-implement TheLastRipper in a language of your choice, take a look at the documentation of the last.fm APIs at:
Also feel free to ask for help on our mailing list.

Double-click, seems to try to open for the briefest second, and then nothing. Snow Leopard on Core 2 Duo iMac.

I'd love to see this back and working. Don't give up!

I would love to see this app in action, but so far I've had no luck. I was able to log in the first time I ran it, but got no music playing. After this once, I have not been able to log in again. I also got my first kernel panic ever after installing this and mono, but it might not be related. Hope to see a more functional version soon! Thanks for your efforts.

By the way, yes it is a windows program ported to OS X using Mono. We have working on a cocoa graphical user... But it's probably far out in the furture...

Looks like a Windows app (?)

It is a windows application based on .Net ported to OS X using Mono...
Well, from start it was written as a Linux application on top of Mono and GTK#, and then later ported to Windows/.Net and Windows.Forms

A Cocoa graphical user interface is more or less in the workings... I don't know if It'll ever get done...

But be happy, it not a terminal application like many other similar programs :)
