Inspired by the hard-to-find underground DJ music found on Resident Advisor, an international online DJ culture guide, CloudPlaylist.R builds playlists based on the Monthly Top 50 DJ Charts
The lists are generated automatically each month using Nokogiri to scrape the data and Soundcloud API to build the playlists. For those who love underground music, this app makes it easy to find the latest cuts tested by highly respected artists.
Two APIs, One Form
This app was a pair programming project for WDI, and was conceived and developed in a couple of hours. We purposely made a retro throw-back look to match the name, as it only does two things.
As the name would imply, it uses two APIs and takes the name of a music artist as the input. Then it pulls a random GIF from Gify.com based on the keyword search and renders it in full page mode. Lastly, a random song by the artist is pulled from Soundcloud, and renders playing in the background. Simple, hours and hours of fun!
