I am so excited to announce that one of my own projects that is public facing is ready to show off on a showcase post!
@johnny and I had a random thought last Friday (Nov. 4th) to launch our own internet radio station. By Sunday, we had a MVP. Today, we have what is close to an end product. We want to do some content additions to the homepage, but overall, the design itself is done!
This was such a fun project, because it included me making my own plugin, custom API calls, setting up a VPS to run the back-end of the actual radio, and so much more.
From bubble, we successfully can:
Create, delete, and modify presenter accounts directly (Presenter accounts are how our live DJ’s connect to the server, hosted off site, but we built a management platform on Bubble so we don’t have to switch between 3 different sites to manage this.)
Setup Spotify’s search API to get the Spotify version of song’s playing, and thus able to allow users to click to play on spotify
Complete DJ Booking system, where our Presenters / DJs can book hour time slots
We still have a ways to go, and we are still working on it daily, but we are proud of the product so far!
- Work on better optimizing the scheduling / booking system
- Build out more content on the site, and more user interaction
- Pages for songs, where users can comment on songs, like them, dislike them, etc…
- Public profile pages
