A music visualizer for the Spotify API


Wanting to do something with music and visualization for this hackathon.

What it does

Search for any song on Spotify, click on it, see an awesome visualization of that song

Challenges I ran into

What the visualization should be. Limiting the scope of the hack. Making the frontend respond to the endpoints we created for the backend.

What We learned

Using Three.js for visualization using components that are built into Chrome. A little bit of Bluemix but ultimately decided not to use it. Creating an OAuth2 flow for the Spotify API. Creating endpoints on the backend for the frontend to communicate to and formatting JSON for each endpoints. etc.

What's next for VA

Adding more to the visualization

Making it interactive

Custom shaders

Exporting the visualization and being able to 3D print it
