      I've always wanted this feature. So that I can get friends to come in and listen to my cart and then give a thumbs up or thumbs down to the items in my cart.

        • I would love the ability to actually customize my own keyboard shortcuts

          The arrow keys may have been hot shit in 1996, but these days most peoples hands gravitate towards AWSD (Games) or ASDF (Typing).
          The ability to set these ourselves would, for example, probably speed up listening and skipping through tracks.

          • Feature: "Chart Score"

            It's my understanding that Beatport doesn't release the number of times a track has been bought or played, correct? One way Crates might be able to give tracks a popularity ranking could be thought something like a "Chart Score".

            Every time a track gets posted to a chart, it gets one point. You could then sort tracks based on Chart Score to get a good idea of what tracks are blowing up. For example if I click on "Black Cow" by
            Booka Shade & Yaruba it appears on 30 charts by my count. That would give it a Chart Score…

              You can already see how many times a track has been charted just by clicking on it in Crates and looking to the left side bar. Having a counter/total there would be a good start, I agree.

              But it also sounds like what you’re asking for is the # of chartings to appear as a sortable item in the tracklist. Definitely something to consider – thanks for the feedback. :)

            • Add "Next Track" and "Previous Track" buttons to the player

              Add simple fast forward and rewind buttons around the current play/pause button.

                Jay, have you tried using the hotkeys? You can quickly skip to the next track or previous track without needing to use a button. Click the ? at the top of Crates to see all the available hotkeys. Will that do the trick for you here? :)

              • Sortable Tables & Custom Columns

                1. would like the ability to sort table columns
                2. would like to be able to add / remove table columns and have columns like "Genre" (Kind of like datatables)

                • search tracks by key

                  Since you already display the keys of different tracks, and you have the option to right click on a specific key to display other tracks from the feed in that key, it would be very handy if you have an actual option to search by a specific key.

                  Beatport has this function, although it displays the actual notes (I find the way you display keys much more useful anyway as it correlates with what you see in Serato). The problem with Beatport is that you can't search for tracks of the desired key within your own feed of labels and…

                  • Track Skipping Intervals

                    It would be awesome to customize the amount of time a tracks skips when we press the left/right arrows. If we can't set the skip time to a specific length of our choosing, which would be preferable in my opinion, then maybe a few options would be adequate. 10 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute would be great options. Excellent work guys!

                    • Feature: Add Support for "Beatport DJs"

                      I really LOVE Beatport DJs, its the only reason why I still go to Beatport at all instead of using Crates exclusively.

                      If you're not familiar with it, Beatport DJs allows you to follow Beatport users who have created profiles in the Beatport DJ system. If you're following someone and they release a new chart, it appears in your feed. I've been building up the DJs (all of whom are generally producers and want more avenues to get people to listen to their tracks) I follow and now get four to five new charts every week, which provides a great…

                        I’ve asked Beatport if the list of DJs you follow is accessible via the API, but it doesn’t appear so. I’ll update here if we here back from Beatport.

                        Building our own DJ follow system would be an alternative to consider, but it’s a bit messy considering Beatport differentiates between Artists (producers) and DJs.

                        In the mean time, you can easily access any chart on Beatport in Crates. If your Beatport Chart URL is this: https://pro.beatport.com/chart/springtime/343296

                        Then you can access it on Crates by putting that last number in this URL, like this:

                        http://crates.co/chart/slug/343296
