I love music and thought about the popularity of Spotify and how cool it would be to take some of its features and allow a group to use them.
What it does
This web app gets the currently playing music and allows for a "collaborative skip" of songs. (Basically if 3 different people press skip, it skips.)
How I built it
I built this using Node Js and React. I started with some Spotify API authentication server boilerplate. Then I broke down each step of the process that needed to be accomplished.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am so proud of myself for finishing this project and all basic features work. I am also happy that I was able to use a lot of background knowledge of React and Node to build it. I really feel a lot more confident as a developer.
What I learned
I learned the importance of time-blocking issues and completing a task by relevance.
What's next for Spotify DJ web app
I want to rewrite everything and pursue some-what of a finished product that I could put online and publicly release.
