Inspiration

A lot of rappers and singers mention other rappers in their songs. We wanted a website that shows all of those links without you manually searching through the artist's songs or knowing all the song by an artist by heart.

What it does

It searches the artist's song lyrics and tries to find other artists in it. Then, we are trying to make this recursive and to put multiple layers so it does it again for the artists in the first layer.

How I built it

We used Javascript, CSS and HTML for the frontend and we used Python with the BeautifulSoup module with also Genius.com's API to find song lyrics.

Challenges I ran into

We are still trying to filter out the lyrics to find the artists. We are still trying to make it recursive

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We finished the front end of the website in few hours. We used Bootstrap to make the website look cleaner.

What I learned

How to publish a website. How to use Bootstrap. How to scrape websites with BeautifulSoup. How to use API's.

What's next for Artistree

We are still trying to filter out the lyrics to find the artists. We are still trying to make it recursive
