I’m always looking for new music. I found an applet on IFTTT, which didn’t work. It couldn’t handle posts other than “Artist - Title”. So I wrote my own and put it up on Github. Here are some specifics:

  • Reddit is social media site where users post material, which is voted for or against by others. The higher the vote, the higher the prominence of the material
  • There are many specific channels (subreddits) for different Music genres; We can use these lists to make curated playlists.
  • Playlist are based on either the ‘top’ posts or ‘hot’ posts lists e.g. /r/music top of the week
  • I use Spotipy and PRAW for talking to Spotify and Reddit.
  • The program cleans the list up with custom parser.
  • Each playlist are limited to 100 songs. As new songs are added, the oldest ones are removed.
  • I update the playlists every day.
