Get the HTML for an Artist Select Tag

Venue Driver provides an API method that will return HTML code for an artist select box, to be inserted directly into a web page. For example, to get a drop-down select box for all artist in Venue Driver, you might call a URL like this:

You can test from the command line using the cURL utility:

curl ''

It will return something like this:

<select id="artists" name="artists"><option value="1">Above &amp; Beyond</option>
<option value="2">Adventure Club</option>
<option value="3">Afrojack</option>
<option value="4">Alvaro</option>
<option value="5">Arty</option>
<option value="119">Oliver Heldens</option>
<option value="121">OB-One</option>
<option value="122">Irie</option></select>

Using that resource URL is pretty simple. In Ruby for example it looks like this:

url = ""
artists_html = Net::HTTP.get_response(URI.parse(url))

Then you can just drop that HTML snippet into your form with <%= artists_html %> or the equivalent in PHP or whatever. That gives you a simple way to build a form that can request a list of artists.
