    Default New tool for Traktor users: Traktor NML Reader

    Hello DJs!

    Exporting playlists from Traktor to HTML is a pain if you don't want to use the archaic default format of not-very-pretty HTML. Also, in an unrelated fact, Traktor automatically saves all your play sessions in XML-based history files which, unfortunately, are basically unreadable and thus useless. I've now made a quick and dirty Web application that converts Traktor NML-files to much more usable HTML and text format.

    With this tool you can export any of your Traktor playlists to simple and easily modifiable HTML-format that can be published as is on your homepage, or text format that you can use however you like (also in spreadsheets and other tools).

    Also, if you want to convert or just browse any of your history files, you can upload it to this tool and it turns it into human readable form.

    To use this tool just export any of your playlists to NML-format and then upload it -- that simple!

    I'm using this tool to publish simple HTML-playlists on my blog of my gigs. I'm sharing this with you with a hope that someone else would also find it useful. Any comments and feedback are very welcome!

    And the URL: http://nml-reader.appspot.com/

    Have fun! :)

    In a sidenote, I already found first problem from the software; it can only read the latest NML-version (v. 15), which is what Traktor 2.6 outputs.

    I don't know which Traktor versions use which NML-versions (or what kind of versions there even are) but I'll check if I can tweak it to read previous NML-versions too.

    If anyone wants to help test/develop this further, feel free to contact me!

    Thanks! That's pretty much why I build it: I'm hosting a weekly 90s show on Mixify and publishing the playlists has become very tedious when you have to manually make the HTML for the playlists every week. Now I just need to upload the playlist and the HTML is done! :)

    I've updated the script, it now reads NML versions 14 and 15.

    Don't know which Traktor version uses NML version 14, but you can just test it: if it works, it works. If it doesn't, feel free to email me or reply here and I'll try to fix it :)
