Inspiration

We were curious about discovering popular music depending on some keywords but also know the song's lyrics, so we decided to merge 2 important APIs (Spotify and Genius.com).

What it does

The idea is simple, you give some key words, then you get a list of most popular playlists and you can generate a brand new playlist with the most popular songs among those ones. Finally, you can add the new playlist to your Spotify and look for specific song's lyrics thanks to Genius.com API.

How we built it

It's a web app that uses a predefined Bootstrap template, and uses public APIs to get the data.

Challenges we ran into

Genius API is not that well documented so it was kind of an exploration process to see how it worked and what datatypes it returned.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We managed to merge both APIs into one functional Web App that can help people discover new music with lyrics.

What we learned

We learned to use public APIs, to add bootstrap templates to a project.

What's next for Playlist Hunter

Add a social module, that matches people with similar songs between playlists in order to follow each other and get better music recommendations.
