We love Spotify! Almost any event from a staff birthday, to a news story, to a sunny day will invariably lead to a shared playlist pinging it’s way around the office.So when Spotify announced a brand new Web API allowing developers to access their huge catalog of tracks and integrate with their player – we just had to build something with it.
In the midst of World Cup fever (and Wimbledon, for the cultured amongst us), and with a wide variety of nationalities represented in our office, we decided to create a playlist generator based on rivalry.
This is SPOTIFIGHT!
Enter any two rival words into SPOTIFIGHT and Spotify will return up to 40 tracks for each. We draw them randomly against each other for a quick popularity contest and let you create a shuffled playlist which launches straight into Spotify for instant playback.
It’s going to be great fun creating playlists for all of our sporting events – but SPOTIFIGHT is an adaptable beast. Why not try political parties, foods, movie stars, historical figures, inanimate objects of your choosing – hell, even bands!
