As it was our first hackathon, we wanted to make something simple and beautiful. The idea was to create something small and then add to it more and more if we have time. As the result, our project has a lot of small bits that are responsible for different parts of it.
What it does
It connects to Spotify.com via it's API and plays a song. While the song is on, the app translates some song's data (frequencies, volume) to the website which does some visual effects which depend on the sent data.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Stay awake for 35 hours
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to split our work so both of us had stuff to do all the time. Also, we are satisfied with the result, it is way better than we expected.
What we learned
What's next for Songs from Spotify
We plan at least to clean the code. Also, a login page can be made as soon as Spotify allows to play full songs from other websites. By now, a link that contains the version which was submitted on Hack the Holidays 2 is attached.
