Remember that night is an webapp developed in Python and Flask to automatically generate Spotify Playlists just with the bands that played in a festival and its date.
What is it?
The web app consists of a simple interface where the user inputs a festival name, year it happened and the bands that were there. Our server searches in Spotify for those bands greatest hits up until the festival year, and add them into a playlist, which the user can save in their own Spotify account.
What did I do in this project?
This is a personal project, without briefing or clients, in which I came up with the idea and programmed, to have a little fun and itch some curiosity scratches. I got help from a few tutorials, some Python books and a lot of searches in StackOverflow.
What did I learn while doing it?
It was a simple idea to execute, but helped me learn a series of programming tools and frameworkds:
- First, it uses Spotify API, allowing to query for specific bands’ songs, and also to create a playlist after the user authenticates.
- Flask to host the HTML/CSS code, and how to create a web project using this Python module.
- Deployment into a webserver, in this case, Heroku, so the code could be accessed by everyone
