34,000 tracks played since 2009! See them here



I made an app awhile back to pull my Last.fm scrobbled tracks into a feed (actually it can pull data from any last.fm user). You can browse all 3403 pages dating back over 4 years!

In additional to integrating with Last.fm's scrobbling API, I included a "play on Spotify" icon that will perform a search through Spotify's API and play the song instantly to Spotify (if it's installed on the user's machine.

How to stop spotify from always appearing in the taskbar

Using Windows 8.1 (also probably works in 7 & XP)

1. Find spotify icon in the notifications area

windows-notification-area

2. Right click on the icon in the notifications area.. select option.

hide-spotify-from-taskbar

 

Because having spotify show up in the taskbar all the time is so unnecessary and I hate it.

In other news.. clicking the close "x" does not close spotify as it should. If you want to actually close spotify, you have to click the "exit" option.

Move Spotify's offline files to another hard drive with a directory junction

I recently migrated my Windows installation to a Samsung m.2 drive. Since the capacity for those drives is expensive, I want to keep any unnecessary files off it.

Using TreeSize (free) to check for large directories and files, I noticed that Spotify was storing over 10gb of files in local app data with no option in the app to choose a different location.

That's when I discovered that Windows 10 actually has a command to create symbolic links and directory junctions!

To solve the problem:

  • locate the Spotify storage directory (mine was C:\Users\Jiko\AppData\Local\Spotify\Data) and delete it

  • create a new directory where you want to put Spotify's data (mine is D:\Spotify\Data)

  • open a command prompt  (windows+r)

  • create a Directory Junction


mklink /J "C:\Users\Jiko\AppData\Local\Spotify\Data" "D:\Spotify\Data"

Spotify won't know the difference and your hard drive will be free :)
