I’m really happy announce the release of a project I’ve been working on: trntbl.
In a sentence, trntbl turns any tumblelog into a playlist.
Trntbl started out as a simple way for me listen to my music when I forgot my iPod at home, but I’ve found it to be a useful method of finding great new music. I’m excited to share trntbl with everyone, and I hope you can take some time to check it out and let me know what you think.
A couple of quick notes:
If you want to remove an audio post from your trntbl, add the tag tt:skip to the associated Tumblr post
If you want to change the background image of your trntbl, add the tag tt:aa to any Tumblr photo post which has a hi-res version
The current method I’m using for grabbing the song artist / title is basic, and not always accurate. If you want to specify what text is outputted in your trntbl for a particular track, add the tag tt:[output] where [output] is whatever you’d like displayed (for example, tt:she & him - you really got a hold on me). You could also email Tumblr support and ask them to add ID3 tag support to the API (please, guys?).
Each player has the following keyboard shortcuts:
- Left / right arrows - previous / next song
- Space - play / pause
- The ‘m’ key - mute / unmute
For various reasons, many thanks to Anne-Sophie, Jessica, David, and Jen. Also, to Tumblr, for providing this wonderful platform, and to everyone who uses it to post amazing music.
