My Projects

Playlist Planner

Overview

Playlist Planner is an app that allows you to create playlists using Spotify's API. A custom link can be shared with friends or event attendees through which others can suggest songs for the playlist. The playlist owner has the ability to approve (add the suggestion to the playlist) or decline the suggestions.

Playlist Planner gives you the ability to create collaborative playlists without giving up user control or information.

My Areas of Focus

I built a Rails app that uses Spotify's Oauth to access users account and their API for creating playlists and approving songs suggeseted/added by others.
