I'm new to Repl;it not sure on how to use this program to create music

katyadee (1231)

@puetroricanpapi Hey there! Do you need some inspo?

puetroricanpapi (0)

@katyadee
Good day..not sure what inspo represents or means.

NithiD (2)

Wait can it be Python? I’m new here

The James-and-Persian gif really captured my immediate feelings about this challenge perfectly.

Can I upload my android game for the jam?

katyadee (1231)

@pushpakumara Did you create it on Repl.it

pushpakumara (0)

@katyadee No I used Unity engine and Visual Studio IDE. So am I not eligible?

KunalSharda (1)

@pushpakumara I believe you need to solely use Repl.it

zog1 (15)

so how is this being judged

katyadee (1231)

@zog1 Creativity and execution. We definitely won't rule out simple programs.

SwordSage (0)

Are we allowed to work as a pair or group?

ebest (645)

Can the next jam be about math?

katyadee (1231)

@ebest Why not try to marry math and music?

ebest (645)

@katyadee clap clap clap clap clap

Interesting...

Also, is there any way to get music in Python?

IRchamp (1)

Does it have to be a game? Or can it be a website?

katyadee (1231)

@IRchamp It can be anything you want! Game, app, program

vedprad1 (881)

Why can't I submit my submission? I can't type anything in the text box!
@katyadee @amasad @TimChen1 @ Whoever can help.

vedprad1 (881)

@vedprad1 : Never mind, I hacked repl.it and enabled the text boxes.

katyadee (1231)

@vedprad1 Hey there - you need to add a repl first. Did you do that?

FaithAndal (1)

I just saw this in facebook. I’m already a professional (it seems this is not just for students right?) and I have a music themed software that I am interested to develop. So I’m thinking to register the first bits of this software in this competition.

How to actually submit? 🤔

katyadee (1231)

@crcdng Post your submission on challenge!

crcdng (0)

@katyadee Thank you! Will do 😊

anthonykung (21)

@katyadee Question about "original" content: Are we allowed to use Mozilla API? Or is that not original? It's kind of confusing... 😕

katyadee (1231)

@anthonykung Basically: No plagiarizing, but open source material is ok.

KuroyukiApps (0)

@katyadee can we use music from our own iTunes Library that we purchased from the iTunes Music Store in our entry project? My idea is basically a custom remake of the Spotify app but written in React + Material UI and I need a ton of Audio MP3 sources for it.

Also, are we allowed to use MongoDB or Passport or Firebase in our project entry for User Auth purposes for user account login and personalized library backup?

george2222 (0)

what language does it have to be in?

katyadee (1231)

@george2222 Any language you'd like

InfernoKay (8)

Is it a solo project or can we make use of the multiplayer repl.it feature 👀?

katyadee (1231)

@InfernoKay Please use Multiplayer! Be our guest :)

minion3665 (13)

Can we work as a team with another repl.it user? @katyadee

katyadee (1231)

@minion3665 Absolutely! You can use Multiplayer.

JaiBartlett (1)

Can I use recordings of music notes that are under the no copyright Creative Commons license?

replitcode (116)

@katyadee This is AMAZING!!!
can't wait!!!

ReshiramWolfu (84)

i don't want money or anything, but i wanna try make a music repl anyway

katyadee (1231)

@ReshiramWolfu I can't wait to see what you make!

HarshitaArora1 (0)

Would a hardware project (would use electrodes and software repo will be on repl) qualify for this or does it need to have software only?

katyadee (1231)

@HarshitaArora1 Hey there, this might be tricky to pull off - I would recommend against it.

ebest (645)

@HarshitaArora1 woah how is THAT possible?

will you be making a repl.it program controlled guitar or something?

HarshitaArora1 (0)

@ebest hi! I was thinking of using EEG to make some kind of recommendation engine that recommends music based on mood.

[deleted]

Actual poggers. I think ima contribute to this one

katyadee (1231)

@Cool_Boi_Freak We're excited! Any ideas?

[deleted]

@katyadee Yea. Have an idea. user pastes a youtube link i use some nodejs to fetch title and see if i can find the lyrics. and play the music at the sametime. but shhhh

GrinInTheBin (16)

@katyadee Is it alright to make a desktop app, post it on Dropbox, then create small website on repl.it with the Dropbox link for others to download. I would provide all the code for the app in repl.it project where the website is located too, but it won't actually be used by the website.

Rules: As always, must be original content & MUST be created and hosted on Repl.it

GrinInTheBin (16)

@ryanhcode Alright, that limits me a lot though :(

katyadee (1231)

@GrinInTheBin Hey Grin, why does it limit you? Happy to help any way I can.

GrinInTheBin (16)

@katyadee It is the core functionality that I can build and the right logic that I have developed, since I am relatively new to programming. I did lots of cool and very different things, but I have not really mastered them, so I try to fit all those chunks into something fully functional and so far it has worked fine for me. The problem is, I can build the app's functionality, but it is the GUI I am having trouble creating. And repl.it makes it harder for me because it pretty much forces me into building a web app (since this is a competition and user friendliness is the key, so the console apps are no option), where I have to be proficient at html, css, communication between python and javascript, storing data... I have built an app in electron framework, but even then I did not have to face too much of the web stuff such as uploading files, playing audio in the browser and so on. Anyway, thanks for offering help, but is just a long path of learning in front of me so I could do competitive repl.it-ing. Btw. it is a real bummer there is no audio in repl.it with just some plain python, had a cool idea of converting song lyrics into morse code sounds with some beat in the background...

Has the challenge been posted yet? Eagerly awaiting :)

laltin (4)

Yes, waiting for it. there is nowhere to join the challenge now @JacksonEnnis

JacksonEnnis (7)

@laltin Glad I wasn't missing something. Has the theme not been announced yet or is it Music?

laltin (4)

@JacksonEnnis yes, this page says it is music: https://repl.it/jam
however there is registration page, I expect them to fix in a few hours, it might be still early in US 😀

JacksonEnnis (7)

@laltin Haha yikes! I know almost nothing about anything music related (other then listening). Looks like this challenge just got harder. lol

katyadee (1231)

@JacksonEnnis Hey there! You should jump in on our brainstorm thread, it's pinned on this board :) We want users to be creative with this... so maybe there's a way you can make it work with thinking out of the box!
