Google Play Music - Playlist Generator
This is a command-line tool to generate a set of standard playlists for Google Play Music libraries.
It’s currently in beta, and some knowledge of Python and comfort with the command line is required. Depending on interest, I will make it more user friendly. The author is using the tool and care is being taken not to make a mess in the library manipulated (I care about mine too), but USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Copy config.sample.yaml into config.yaml, and add your account name under auth.user and your password (or an application-specific password if you have 2-factor authentication enabled) under auth.password.
You can either do a:
pip install GPM-Playlist-Generator
or if you’ve cloned this repo:
python setup.py install
Running the tool
What it does
The default configuration captured in config.sample.yaml will log into your account, download the list of tracks and playlists in your library, and do the following as per the playlist section in the configuration:
- Generate a set of playlists grouping your tracks by month in which they’ve been added to your library (monthly_added)
- Generate a sorted list of your most frequently played tracks (most_played)
The playlist generated will all have a name starting with “[PG]”. This is configurable.
If you rerun the tool, it will only regenerate the playlists that are needed (new tracks in monthly added, and most played).
I need help
I want to report a problem or I have a cool idea for this tool
Please use the issue tracker.
I don’t trust this tool
“No problem”. You can run it with the --dry-run option. It will not write anything to your account, simply show you what it would do.
I want to get rid of all those generated playlists
You can run:
gpm-playlistgen.py --delete-all-playlists config.yaml
The description field is used to check that this is a generated list, but I strongly advise to the the following first to see what it’s going to do:
gpm-playlistgen.py --delete-all-playlists config.yaml --dry-run
The heavy lifting is done by Simon Weber’s gmusicapi.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
