Beatport Link Playlist Creator (BPPL)

BPPL is a simple bookmarklet that makes it easy for DJ's to create Playlists in Beatport Link, for use in DJ software like Rekordbox or on the new Denons.

Beatport Link is a subscription to beatport to stream their full catalogue. No need to buy all those new releases each week.

This little Glitch site is here to host the Bookmarklet and code. For more detail of the tool and how to use it please see our Beatport Link Playlists post on Medium.

Plenty of ideas - but lets see if people find this useful first 😄

Code

This tool consists of 2 bits of code. You can view it together with the code running this little page here.

The 2 files are:

1) the bookmarklet - which is the code added as a browser bookmark

2) the bppl.js file - which is added to the beatport page when you click the bookmark and that includes the bulk of the code for this tool
