I have been a longtime iTunes user and, despite its shortcomings, the ability to build complex, dynamic playlists has yet to be matched by the other streaming services. I desperately wanted that ability in Spotify, so PLYLST is my attempt at building the thing I think it's missing most: that ability to put together dynamic playlists based on many different attributes. Spotify has a wealth of what they call "audio features" (danceability, valence, tempo, mode, energy, etc) and turns out those are pretty amazing tools for organize your library as well as discovering new music! There are over a dozen attributes that you can organize your Spotify library with. Oh, and it's open-source! https://github.com/Shpigford/plylst

@shpigford This is great. If it could show the BPM of the songs in my playlist then I could figure out a good cutoff value for the next iteration of the list!

@samuraicode Click on the little "i" info icon to the right of any track and it should be there!
@shpigford Booyah! Thank you!
@shpigford not product related at all but is this the info for Counterparts lol
Glad to see PLYLST here! I mainly use it to generate playlists for running (using the BPM filter) - works like a charm!

@martinrlzd Great to hear, Martin!
I switched from Apple Music recently because Siri finally supports it. Apps like this give Spotify superpowers I didn’t know could exist when I was on Apple

@andrewwarner Exactly! Apple Music really had some pretty powerful features for curating your music. Spotify has lagged behind for years...so, figured it was time to just do it myself. :)
Are you saying I don't have to press "I don't like this song" on almost every song in my Discover Weekly Spotify Playlist anymore?! HUGE! Congrats.

@mrsimonbennett It's a tight squeeze at the moment. Just shy of death. πŸ™ƒ
@mrsimonbennett @shpigford curious, where's it hosted? what's the bottleneck?
