  1. Django Authentication using an Email Address

    I’ve read a lot of half-thought-through explanations for how to let users of a Django site log in with email address rather than username. This seems to be the only one that covers all the bases. Still, it shouldn’t be this hard.

  2. Groovify your music tweets - Denoiser the better

    Tweet a song and @groovify generates a Spotify or Grooveshark playlist based on it.

  3. - Generate Spotify Playlists powered by Lastfm!

    @kierondonoghue Very nice, ta. But the drag New Playlist bit doesn’t work for me (Mac, Safari 5). Maybe add copy and paste like Spotibot’s?

    @topfife Thanks, but I’m not short of playlists made by strangers :)
