Build Status

Export your Spotify playlists to CSV by clicking on the link below:

https://watsonbox.github.io/exportify/

As many users have noted, there is no way to export/archive/backup playlists from the Spotify client for safekeeping. This application provides a simple interface for doing that using the Spotify Web API.

No data will be saved - the entire application runs in the browser.

Usage

  1. Fire up the app
  2. Click 'Get Started'
  3. Grant Exportify read-only access to your playlists
  4. Click the 'Export' button to export a playlist

Click 'Export All' to save a zip file containing a CSV file for each playlist in your account. This may take a while when many playlists exist and/or they are large.

Re-importing Playlists

Once playlists are saved, it's also pretty straightforward to re-import them into Spotify. Open up the CSV file in Excel, for example, select and copy the spotify:track:xxx URIs, then simply create a playlist in Spotify and paste them in.

Export Format

Track data is exported in CSV format with the following fields from the Spotify track object:

  • Track URI
  • Track Name
  • Artist URI(s)
  • Artist Name(s)
  • Album URI
  • Album Name
  • Album Artist URI(s)
  • Album Artist Name(s)
  • Album Release Date
  • Album Image URL (typically 640x640px jpeg)
  • Disc Number
  • Track Number
  • Track Duration (ms)
  • Track Preview URL (mp3)
  • Explicit?
  • Popularity
  • Added By
  • Added At

By clicking on the cog, additional data can be exported.

By selecting "Include artists data", the following fields will be added from the Spotify artist object:

  • Artist Genres

And by selecting "Include audio features data", the following fields will be added from the Spotify audio features object:

  • Danceability
  • Energy
  • Key
  • Loudness
  • Mode
  • Speechiness
  • Acousticness
  • Instrumentalness
  • Liveness
  • Valence
  • Tempo
  • Time Signature

Additionally, by selecting "Include album data", the following fields will be added from the Spotify album object (full)

  • Album Genres
  • Label
  • Copyrights

Note that the more data being exported, the longer the export will take.

Playlist Search

If you're searching for a specific playlist to export, you can use the search facility to find it quickly by name:

Please be aware that if you have a very large number of playlists, there may be a small delay before the first search results appear since the Spotify API itself doesn't allow for searching directly, so all playlists are retrieved first.

Searching is case-insensitive.

Development

This project was bootstrapped with Create React App.

In the project directory, first run yarn install to set up dependencies, then you can run:

yarn start

Runs the app in the development mode.
Open http://localhost:3000 to view it in the browser.

The page will reload if you make edits.
You will also see any lint errors in the console.

yarn test

Launches the test runner in the interactive watch mode.
See the section about running tests for more information.

yarn build

Builds the app for production to the build folder.

Stack

In addition to Create React App, the application is built using the following tools/libraries:

Notes

  • According to Spotify's documentation:

    Folders are not returned through the Web API at the moment, nor can be created using it".

    Unfortunately that's just how it is.

  • I've gone to some lengths to try to eliminate errors resulting from excessively high usage of the Spotify API. Nonetheless, exporting data in bulk is a fairly request-intensive process, so please do try to use this tool responsibly. If you do require more throughput, please consider creating your own Spotify application which you can use with Exportify directly.

  • Disclaimer: It should be clear, but this project is not affiliated with Spotify in any way. It's just an app using their API like any other, with a cheeky name and logo 😇.

  • In case you don't see the playlists you were expecting to see and realize you've accidentally deleted them, it's actually possible to recover them.
