DiscogsToSpotify ~ Playlists From Collections


Both Discogs and Spotify offer a Web API for Third Party Applications like this one. After logging in with your Spotify account, you will be asked to provide a Discogs username. Using the Web APIs, we will query the public collection of the given user and try our best to match each release from the collection to an album on Spotify. The result will be stored for you inside a newly created playlist in your Spotify account.

The Ogger Club is the place where you can take advantage of all the system’s features.

beets ~ The Music Geek’s Media Organizer


The purpose of beets is to get your music collection right once and for all. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes using the MusicBrainz database. Then it provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music.

Because beets is designed as a library, it can do almost anything you can imagine for your music collection. Via plugins, beets becomes a panacea:

  • Fetch or calculate all the metadata you could possibly need: album art, lyrics, genres, tempos, ReplayGain levels, or acoustic fingerprints.
  • Get metadata from MusicBrainz, Discogs or Beatport. Or guess metadata using songs’ filenames or their acoustic fingerprints.
  • Transcode audio to any format you like.
  • Check your library for duplicate tracks and albums or for albums that are missing tracks
  • Browse your music library graphically through a Web browser and play it in any browser that supports HTML5 Audio and lots more.
