Party DJ's suck. Why trust them to play good music? Instead, every person attending can compile a playlist they want to listen to. It's engaging, unique, and simple.
What it does
You simply text the given number the name of your favorite song and its instantly added to the playlist!
How we built it
We implemented the Twilio API and ngrok to set up a server which can store and process incoming sms messages. Then using the Spotify API, access a particular user's playlist, search Spotify's database of songs and then queue the match.
Challenges we ran into
This was our first time implementing API's and so there was some difficulty at first knowing where to begin when attempting to build our project.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Our first use of API's was a success.
What we learned
How to implement an API and use it with another. HTTP Tunneling.
