Hello, I have a couple of questions… (non-technical, non-coding person here)
How do I save something as a JSON?
What is JQ?
What do I do with this code-looking-stuff?

cat playlist.json | jq -r '.track[] | "\(.creator) - \(.title)"'

Thanks!

You press the “inspect playlist” button and then copy and paste the content into the text editor of your choice. Then save that file.

It’s a lightweight JSON processor. See here.

It’s bash command language. If you do not recognize it, then your computer is probably not equipped to handle it :wink:. In principle, you could use any JSON processor you like to glean the artist and title data from the file. Sadly, if you are a ‘non-technical’ person that may not be an easy task.

FWIW: I too have considerable difficulty resolving the LB playlists into something I can use. So far the “export to Spotify” proves to be most user-friendly, but their database is lacking a lot of tracks from my personal local collection :frowning:

OK, thanks for the answer! I think this is not for me then…
Cheers!

You can do this without needing to install anything…
