I mean the whole point is to put a little effort into it, so I'm thinking:
- build the playlist on streaming service
- buy each song and download
- rename MP3s in order
- upload to personal site
- maybe add a nice HTML player? make each track downloadable? zip them all? idk this is getting complicated
- send her the URL
Steps 1-3 complete. I held off on code as long as possible. I'm now writing a basic static site generator for this mixtape 😄
Also a blog post is expected.
@matt this looks pretty cool, would love to see a working prototype :)
@matt nice! I have a friend who made a real mixtape on a cassette and give it to a girl along with a cassette player. She loved it
@matt Why not put all the MP3s into one file? No zipping needed.
@SystemWordFact Probably can't skip tracks then, right?
@matt Doesn't that make it a more authentic mix tape experience then?
@SystemWordFact Hah I guess I was thinking more CD mixtape than cassette mixtape 😄
But that could be an interesting option! I'm already headed down the road of creating a small program to generate this for me.
@matt Yeah! Happy hacking!
