Generate the JSON code for those new Bandcamp embeddable players with my handy little app.

Edit: There is a new version of this app that’s easier than ever to use! Check out the new version.

If you’re a tech-savvy musician and haven’t heard of Bandcamp, you’re missing out. One of their many phenomenal features that was recently released is the ability to have complete pixel-perfect control over the layout of your embedded media players (like the one you can see in the sidebar to the left).

To create the settings for these custom layouts, you need to muck around in JSON (which is not very fun). So I put together a little app that lets you customize your player through a form, and then copy the code that it generates - easy as pie. Check it out:

Leave bug reports and feature requests in the comments below. I hope this is useful for some people!

Note: There are still a couple features to add, namely support for text colour and tracklist row height. I’ll get to those after I’m done my research report - this app is a result of me procrastinating on that!
