I wanted to be able to randomize my playlist order in a more permanent way. I know there is a shuffle option but when I shuffle and continue playing
on my phone, it re-shuffle's the playlist so I'll sometimes keep hearing the same songs over and over.
Once you authenticate with Spotify, your playlists will appear below. Select a playlist to change the order of songs and wait for a message. Easy peasy.
Once it completes though, it can't be reversed by this tool. So make sure the list you want to change the order of is the correct one.
If you do end up using the tool, please leave a comment down below! I never imagined so many people would find this tool useful.

Information about this tool
Your Spotify authentication information isn't saved anywhere permanently (unless you want it to in a cookie), just in your session, so once your session ends with the site, you'll have to click on the authenticate button again to use the tool.
If you've approved access to this application previously before, it should redirect you back here as you don't need to reapprove this application again.
If it throws an error, it could possibly be caused by too many requests being sent to Spotify.
If you want to revoke access for this tool, go to your Approved Applications
in your Spotify profile.
Look for Playlist Tools by Steven Aleong
and click on the Revoke Access button beside it.
If you want to reuse the tool after that, you just need to grant this tool permissions again by clicking on the authenticate button above.
For playlists that have been randomized or reversed, I save the following information:
User name, playlist name, and the number of tracks in the playlist.
This data is pulled using the Spotify API Endpoint:
Get a User's Profile
and Get a List of a User's Playlists
