Dalton Sutton Musician. Software Developer.
  • Coded a web scraper for Bandcamp last night. I didn’t like their API, so naturally I had built my own. Now I have a JSON response with any band’s info and detailed discography. It looks at a band’s Bandcamp page, and collects all the available public information by digging through the source code. Might make this open source.

    Also, you can straight up steal any band’s music from Bandcamp by looking at the source code and knowing what to look for. In case nobody was in the know. Also, because I have to say it, I didn’t build this tool for that purpose. Please don’t steal music. Support artists. It means the world to them.
