we just released an open-source itunes-clone built in jquery (and app engine, soundmanager 2, soundcloud api), complete with smart playlists, drag’n’drop, keyboard shortcuts, load-as-you-scroll playlists, playlist sharing, waveform display of tracks, etc. we’ve extended jquery ui a bit for this to happen.
It’s using soundcloud.com as the primary music source, and the SoundCloud JSONP API to access the track metadata, available at http://soundcloud.com/api.
I like how it shows the waveform of the entire track at the bottom of the screen. Unfortunately, it’s limited to the rather tiny music selection on soundcloud’s service, but since it’s open-source, the future is interesting indeed.
Eric sent along a playlist with some of his electronic playlists: http://www.thecloudplayer.com/share/3e718.
