Freddie Mercury's ghost

What it does

We pull data from Touchtunes for the year 2018, in the form of JSON files. We pull that data for a specific artist, or a song, then compare it to specific events during the year and look for spikes in listens.

thebettersong.tech

We then display all the statistics on the number of listens people would make per day and per month to see whether or not current events covered in media over the year have an effect on song/band listens.

How we built it

python for the backend. html, css and javascript for the frontend. JSON and txt files for the data.

Challenges we ran into

Figuring out how Touchtunes organizes its data and learning how to pull raw data from their website. Understanding Node.js and/or JQuery and AJAX to be able to transfer the data from the JSON files to our graphs.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Figuring out how Touchtunes organizes its data and learning how to pull raw data from their website. Learning how to set up a custom domain for a website.

What we learned

We learned how JSON files work and how to manipulate them using python. We learned how to implement a custom domain name.

What's next for conuhacks-4.github.io

Implementing either Node.js or JQuery to be able to directly access the JSON files to be displayed on the graphs.
