During the last weeks I worked on discover-backup.com: A Service which will backup your awesome discover playlists on a weekly basis. It was just designed for my personal use, but I decided to put some more effort in it and make it public.
Because I’m lazy and forget things a lot and I guess some of you guys do that too. I had several good discover playlists and said to myself “Daaaaamn, there are some awesome tracks in it, I will extract them later”. Well, we all know how that went, I forgot it and the awesome tracks were gone. **bleep** me.
Okay. How is it working?
To get things started, you will have to login with your spotify account (And no, I will not get your password at any point). After logging in, you propably want to tune and enable your backup-settings. There are multiple backup-methods:
Create a new playlist - This will create a new playlist every week with a name of your choice
Add to a playlist - Just append all tracks of your discover playlist to another
Add to “My Music” - Just append all tracks of your discover playlist to your “MyMusic” Library
Save them at discover-backup.com - The playlist gets saved in our database, you can view/export/delete them from there
You will get a personal backup date somewhen in the week (Nerd-Note: Because of Spotify’s API-Limits) and you can even get an automatic mail wether your backup was successfull or not. If you want to check if your backup method works, you can also force a backup, although with a cooldown of 30 minutes. (Nerd-Note. Yes, API-Limits again…)
Derp, there is already this IFTTT-Rule and this thing at rocketgraph?
Yes, but there are several things which annoyed me:
