Built With

Spotify API

This application uses following endpoints of the Spotify Web API

I used the Search and Playlist APIs to retrieve the user’s annual “top songs” playlist created by Spotify and the Personalization API to get the user’s Top Tracks and Artists. I then retrieved track features using the Tracks API and compared these values against the top Spotify songs during each respective time period. This React application uses the Web API directly in the client-side only and does not have a back-end.

Creating a Spotify App

  1. Go to https://developer.spotify.com/dashboard/, log in and create a new App.
  2. Add http://localhost:3000/ as Redirect URI in your Spotify App Settings.
  3. Grab the Client Id that will be added to .env in the root directory of the repository.

Try it out yourself

  1. Clone the repository
  2. Navigate to the root directory of the repository
  3. npm install
  4. cp .env_EXAMPLE .env and fill REACT_APP_SPOTIFY_CLIENT_ID with your client id and REACT_APP_REDIRECT_URI with http://localhost:3000/
  5. npm start

Application is based on create-react-app

What I Learned

This is the first project I have developed using a javascript framework/library. I learned so much about using the React js library and enjoyed the development process. I learned about class/functional components, JSX, props, state, and lifecycle methods. React js allowed me to organize my code so that I could adhere to DRY principles and better programming practices. React js was easier to learn than I had expected and I found it to be tremendously easier than using vanilla js like I had in the past. I look forward to exploring more projects with React hooks in the future. I also learned about making API requests by working with the Spotify API. I utilized concepts such as Async/await, promises, callbacks, etc. The thoughough documentation provided by Spotify was extremely helpful for learning how to make requests to the powerful endpoints and the responses to expect. I learned about the OAuth2 authentication flow, and decided to use an implicit grant flow since I did not want my application to rely on a backend. Once again, the Spotify documentation was extremely helpful in learning how to achieve this with no prior experience. This project has been extremely helpful in my growth as a developer.
