#8tracks-downloader

A bash script to download playlists from 8tracks. It's a very hackish way of doing it, but works for me.

##Usage

./script.sh <mix-url> <play-token>

##Requirements

##Steps

  1. Go to an 8tracks mix page (like this) in a new incognito window (basically none of the tracks should have been played earlier) and open up Chrome developer tools.
  2. Copy the url. This is the mix-url in the command above.
  3. Get the play-token from the console (you may need to enable XHR logging) or the network tab, where it typically appears as .../sets/<play-token>/...
  4. Execute the above command and tracks from the mix are downloaded in a new folder with the same name as the mix.
