Among all of the exhilarating house parties we've attended, the biggest complaint we always hear is the inability for guests to contribute to the DJ's playlist. So, we wanted to revolutionize the party-going experience.
What it does
TurnTunes allows the DJ of the house party to host a party, and the associated "secret code" for the session can be distributed to guests so they can add their suggestions to the playlist by hitting "Join Party" and entering the code.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Finding the best API available to stream music.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works. And it looks lit.
What we learned
We learned how to use the Youtube Search API, the Spotify Web API, and the Firebase API for real-time data synchronization with multiple clients.
What's next for TurnTunes
The Youtube API implementation will be more reliable in months to come, and possibly a Soundcloud version will be implemented as well. Fingers crossed, the Spotify Web API will soon have better features as well. The domain we bought for the "Best Domain Registered on Domain.com (MLH)" challenge was turntunes.com, but domain.com did not process it in time for submission.
