Overview

A Bandcamp search tool

(previously known as Bandcamp Tag Search) -- THE BIG 2.0 UPDATE! -- Massively improved number of results and time it takes to return them! Bandcamp is a great place to find new and fascinating music. But you probably have an idea of your type of music so actually finding new things matching that taste is a bit tough. This tool helps you out by letting you search for different tags/genres/locations and finds albums that match all those criterias. USAGE Type in a tag, genre or location and press add. Repeat for all criterias you want to find albums for. Click the x to the right of the added search criteria to remove it. When you find an interesting album, click on it to jump to its page. Note that search criterias that have not been cached previously might take a while for the server to cache up. KNOWN ISSUES - It isn't possible to get all albums from Bandcamp so some albums might be missing. WEBPAGE Also available as a webpage at www.campexplorer.io SOURCE Code is available at https://github.com/SvDvorak/CampExplorer RELEASE NOTES 2.0.0 - Improved number of results returned by up to 10x - Instantaneous results for previously searched tags - Changed app logo - Changed name from Bandcamp Tag Search to Camp Explorer - Added logo and title in popup - Added release notes in app - Added app review question 1.0.4 - Minor fix in preparation for larger update 1.0.3 - Fixed rare error when having multiple tags 1.0.2 - Changed Bandcamp throttling message. 1.0.1 - Fixed app not handling 503 (Service unavailable) errors which occurs when searching Bandcamp too often.

Works perfectly in 2.0, at least with my tags. Thank you for your work!

i'm experience the same thing as shawn stnicky, though i think i might give an example; to progress further development. i put in "mannheim" and "power electronics" only one ressult "https://tescogermany.bandcamp.com/album/position-parall-le" shows up, the label that's located in manheim germany has many more realeases with does two taggs. for example: "https://tescogermany.bandcamp.com/album/manifest-as-teeraal-r-um-pheynix" and "https://tescogermany.bandcamp.com/album/mardr-md-d-dsstr-...

Hi Christoffer, Thanks for the very detailed description, it helps a lot! Sadly, it's an issue without a solution because your theory is completely right, the app does not have all Bandcamp albums. I do not have direct access to Bandcamp's database so I have to use what available data I can get my hands on, where the maximum I can get is around 4000 albums for a tag. So the app can never be an exhaustive source for all possible albums, it will always just be a way to get a sample of tag combinations.
