Looking for WS developer for 1001tracklists.com or mixesdb.com


is there anyone who is skilled, has enough time on his hands and would like to help a fellow out? :blush:
Since I am collecting a large number of live sets it would really help me to have scripts for https://www.1001tracklists.com/ and/or https://www.mixesdb.com/

I assume there are a lot of collectors out there who might also need a script but never thought of it.

There was a mixesdb script ages ago, which eventually broke.

If I need it, why not develop it myself?
Because I have zero coding skills and can't make a sense of any of it.

I would really appreciate it if someone could have a look and see if anything is possible.

Of course I would alpha/beta test.

Unfortunately there is an additional difficulty for Websites like the above:
They don't offer an officially supported API.

Without an API you have to parse the HTML source code from the returned result page and try to guess where exactly your needed values starts and ends inside this code.
(If you want to get a feeling: Call this example URL https://www.1001tracklists.com/tracklist/11xk8b39/x.guardians-trance-vibes-hash3-2023-02-04.html and right click it in your browser to "inspect" the source code and search for example for the artist name "Hardwell". I don't mean the alternative picture text and 26 other occurences, I really mean the artist name. :wink:)

This is incredibly time consuming.
In addition, every slightest change to the website includes the risk that a Websource Script will no longer work and you have to do the time consuming work again. Or it ends in another broken script. :disappointed_relieved:

I don't say this is impossible, but I would not get my hopes up too high.

Exactly what I assumed. :cry:
