Out of curiosity, what interests you guys more:
(1) Infinite Scroll – more tracks constantly load, without you needing to click to the next page?
(2) More Tracks Per Page – Just more tracks per page, like 100 or 150, like the Beatport site?
Thanks for feedback!absid commented
Thanks for the feedback Ryan – you’re right that we could capture a “Times Charted” every time we load the track, but tracks only get loaded when a user plays/selects them. This means the data would only get updated on tracks users are selecting, so I don’t think it’s that valuable.
The other thing is that not many DJs are posting Charts on Beatport right now, for various reasons, so I actually don’t think “Times Charted” is a very meaningful metric until Beatport expands their playlists/charts. It’s not a priority of theirs right now, unfortunately.
We’ll definitely keep an eye on this once we get access to the new Beatport API next year though, hopefully. :) Keep the feedback/ideas coming until then!
Crates primarily displays feeds of tracks, which often contain hundreds/thousands of tracks. If you sorted by artist, label, or track name, the returned list wouldn’t be very useful.
Could you guys give some examples of columns you’d want to sort by, and in what context?
Crates now supports filtering by Beatport genre, release date, and musical key, so I think that might cover most of the use cases here.
In regards to adding or removing columns – I like that idea. What columns from Beatport would you want to be able to add, besides genre?
