We wanted to make an app that makes it easy for people in group settings to be able to give input as to what music they want played at an event
What it does
Users can send a text message, containing a song name, to a number that is provided by the app to queue up their song of choice to a Spotify playlist currently playing.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Our original idea was to use Socket.io to dynamically update playlist, but the installation didn't turn out well. So we instead use a refresh button to update playlist.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Proud that we got everything working at the end.
What we learned
I (Phong) improved skills and knowledge in terms of back-end development and using APIs. I (Shane) increased my front-end programming skills.
What's next for Party123
