alyx.io is a new "jukebox"-like app that gives you and your friends the ability to listen to music from spotify and youtube at parties!
You can queue music, create and save playlists, give ranks and permissions to users and much more to come...
alyx.io connects with your personal spotify account to send and receive information about songs that you want to play. These songs are then forwarded with a request to a backend-server, which handles queueing and playlist management of all participants.
The best part is: Even if some of your friends only have access to a spotify free-account, the backend is using a premium account, which will garantuee ad-free music playback for everyone.
The setup process is simple: Just install the host-side application, let everyone authenticate via the "Connect"-Page and enjoy.
Begin by making sure the requirements are met:
- All the devices are connected to the same network as the host.
- Python 3.7 is installed
After that, download the application here:
Follow the set-up prompts on screen.
