Concept Map playlist visualization generated by Exaile 3.4 beta3

At work, I’ve been playing a little bit with visualization of data in D3. After hours, I DJ at local Lindy Hop dance events, and it occurred to me recently that it could be interesting to visualize my playlists to understand more about what I actually played. Using Exaile, I’m able to easily add a lot of metadata to the tracks in my collection, and its plugin framework made it easy to take that data and do something interesting with it.

From that initial investigation, I’ve built in a playlist visualization templating engine plugin for Exaile that can do some very simple visualization stuff, and I’m planning on extending the types of things I can do with it. Here’s an interesting one I created from a recent playlist. This visualization was inspired by The Concept Map, except the source code for this isn’t minified. 🙂
