This plugin adds a widget to your WordPress sidebar showing the currently played song of a AzuraCast station by their public API. You’re able to configure whether to display the album, title, artist, artwork and player links.
Important: By version 2.0.0 you need to use the station shortcode instead of station id. It’s necessary because AzuraCast’s Live Now-Playing Api won’t support station ids. You need to enable websocket support in your AzuraCast Instance.
- Upload the plugin files to your WordPress plugins directory, e.g. ‘/wp-content/plugins/plugins/’.
- Enable the plugin pressing ‘Activate’.
- Add and configure the widget under ‘Appearance’ -> ‘Widgets’.

- Data from AzuraCast is now loaded asynchronous. By default the AzuraCast-Widget will be refreshed every 5 minutes. You can change that setting in the widgets settings or can disable this feature completely.
- I’m looking for a way to use AzuraCast’s Webhook API. Perhaps new data will be loaded directly in a newer version instead of refreshing it staticly every x minutes.
