Togethertube music script for shuffling playlist

4 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I have a working script I use to load music into a website playlist togethertube.com.  While not a perfect script, I'm hoping to get some feedback about how I could possibly clean up the code as if I expand my playlist to say 50 songs, the script is going to be very long.  Here's the code:

 

#include <Array.au3>
sleep(5000)
$z=0

Local $array[3]

$array[0]= "slipknot wait and bleed"
$array[1] = "Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger"
$array[2] = "Marilyn Manson - The Beautiful People"

_ArrayShuffle($array)


sleep(500)
    send($array[0])
    sleep(3000)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SPACE}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTDOWN}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTUP}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{DELETE}") 
    
sleep(500)
    send($array[1])
    sleep(3000)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SPACE}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTDOWN}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTUP}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{DELETE}")


sleep(500)
    send($array[2])
    sleep(3000)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SPACE}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTDOWN}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTUP}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{DELETE}")

When you create a channel in togethertube, you have to start the script, then click into the "search box" and the script auto-fills the songs and adds them to the playlist.

 

Any feedback welcome.  I've used AutoIT a bit in the past, but I feel like my code is still "beginner" level.

 

Thanks

Hi rcareno

Instead of inserting the entire set of commands for every single array element, I would go through the array in a loop like this:

 

#include <Array.au3>
sleep(5000)
$z=0

Local $array[3]

$array[0]= "slipknot wait and bleed"
$array[1] = "Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger"
$array[2] = "Marilyn Manson - The Beautiful People"

_ArrayShuffle($array)


For $i = 0 To UBound($array) -1

sleep(500)

    send($array[$i])
    sleep(3000)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SPACE}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTDOWN}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{TAB}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{SHIFTUP}")
    sleep (200)
    send ("{DELETE}")

David,

Thanks so much for the feedback!   Added the code and works like a charm, without having 300+ lines of code :)

That's one thing I need to read more about is loop functions.
