Went to Amsterdam Music Hack Day and left with a working Tomahawk Resolver for 7digital previews, a spiked locker integration and some cool ideas on how to promote 7digital with Open Source
This will allow Tomahawk to use 7digital’s track search and listen to previews, in the future it will integrate buy buttons and help out Tomahawk to work with 7digital :-)
The locker integration is spiked using a local service which would be provided/maintained by either 7digital or a third party so it won’t be available immediately after the demo as there are feature, performance and security concerns.
What was used
http://developer.7digital.net/ 7digital API with the demo musichackday API client key
https://github.com/tomahawk-player Tomahawk resolver examples and documentation
Also built some local stubbed API responses using Ruby Sinatra as the connection was slow/failed sometimes :-)
Don’t judge me on my JS..
https://github.com/goncalopereira/7digital-tomahawk-resolver working search with previews with musichackday key
Service example code, this will authorise the user with a premium api account and get the locker, it is a slow implementation as locker search is not available and no caching was added but works.
require 'rubygems' require 'sinatra' require 'sevendigital' require 'very_simple_cache.rb' require 'json' before do @api_client = Sevendigital::Client.new(:oauth_consumer_key =>’x’, :oauth_consumer_secret => 'x', :lazy_load? => true, :country => ‘GB’, :cache => VerySimpleCache.new, :verbose => "verbose") end post '/authorise' do content_type :json email = params["email"] password = params["password"] search = params["search"] user = @api_client.user.authenticate(email,password) #not good, should cache more locker = user.get_locker() #also caching missing valid_results = brute_force_search_on_string_compare(user, locker.locker_releases, search) valid_results.to_json end
