Control Energenie With NodeMCU

| Comments

You might have noticed, we like the concept of Smart Homes, and physical devices you can control remotely from an API using your local Wifi network. Specifically, we’re talking about Energenie sockets, a brand of electrical sockets controlled by radio. We’ve introduced previously these sockets in posts like Control Energenie with ESP8266, Control energenie with Pebble or Raspberry Pi and Energenie but this time, we’re going to show you how we built the same Energenie radio controller with a NodeMCU web server.


Infinify: An Infinite Discovery Mode for Spotify

| Comments

I’m a Spotify user. I’m not the greatest fan of the user experience they offer, but it’s definitely the “lesser evil” when it comes to music streaming.

You see, I’m the kind of person that just cant be bothered to choose, I loathe choosing. Deciding albums to hear? What are we, in the 90s? with phisical CDs that need popping into a player? It’s the digital age! I just want to open Spotify and be presented with a continuous stream of non-stop music, wihout having the choose an album, or a genre, or a playlist. They even require my constant feedback when in radio mode! (don’t even get me started on the Spotify radio, yuck). I just want a big “play” button and let Spotify use a teeny bit of machine intelligence to feed me stuff that it thinks I might like. Considering the app is sitting on top of a pile of data from me (listening history, saved collection)… is it really that hard?

Because Spotify is not giving that to me though, we at Coconauts decided to build it ourselves, using their API and Javascript. The result: Infinify.

We have more projects that posts in the blog, that’s why a long ago we created a new new version of our first-game-ever: Water Rings.
