🎧 Spotify Playlist Generator

A Flask app built with the Spotify API.

Pitt - CS1520 Spring 2021


In my Programming for Web Applications class, I had to build a web application with a group that made use of an API. We ended up using the Spotify API for an application that creates recommended playlist for users based on their answers to a series of questions. It also allowed users to sign in with Spotify and save the playlist to their account.

Tech Stack

The application was built using Flask, the Spotipy Python package for the Spotify API, and Google Cloud Platform. It was deployed on GCP's App Engine and used Datastore as a database.
