Web service support for creating spotify playlists?:
XSPF import is coming, though initially only through the client application. We have some really cool things up our sleeves when it comes to integration with other web apps, but we’re not quite ready to go public with that.
HubLog: Festive 50 Spotify Playlists:
Lots of people seem to be making Spotify playlists of John Peel’s Festive 50 charts.
The raw data for Festive 50 track listings doesn’t seem to be available so I scraped them into TSV files.
Here are XSPF versions of the tracklists, for use with Last.fm’s Boffin (if you have the audio files locally). Ideally Spotify would read XSPF playlists and resolve them itself.
