This post discusses work done the week of the YFP week and the week after.
After the music business students pitched their ideas to us, Sukh and I decided that we were interested in the ‘Mix-Map’ project.
We’ve been carrying out research on what’s needed to put their ideas into practice, me on the Spotify API and Sukh on the design elements of Framework7.
Using the Spotfy developer documentation, I created a simple app that logs the user into Spotify, then returns the name of their currently playing song. This example uses OAuth2 authentication with Spotify, specifically the ‘Implicit_Grant’ flow which is all done client side.
For next week I will be developing this into the ‘Authorization_Code’ flow, to get refresh tokens for each user.
