Oliver Peat
TuneCrawl

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Oliver Peat and I am currently a Software Engineer. I am about a year out of college now. Building side projects has been a hobby of mine since college. In college, my side projects consisted mostly of android applications. TuneCrawl is the first website that I have done, and really the first side project of mine that has received a lot of attention.

Why did you decide to build TuneCrawl?

As a software engineer, I always look for problems that I could solve with software. Music is a big passion of mine alongside programming, so I decided to start a project that combined the two. Like a lot of people, I stream music from a variety of providers. I like Spotify for its software, ability to use keyboard music controls, and quality of sound. Unfortunately, they do not have a lot of the type of music I listen to, so I found myself hopping around different streaming providers constantly until I could find the song that I wanted to listen to. TuneCrawl sets out to solve this problem, by making listening to a song extremely quick and painless.

It took me about two months of initial development to ship the product. Since then, I have been constantly improving the website based on feedback from the users.

How do you find the time to do this?

I don't have kids or a significant other which gives me a lot more free time than many people. I try to take advantage of this as much as I can while this is still the case. I believe if you are passionate enough about something you are working on, however, that you will find time makes itself 'noticeable.' I guess I will find out if this is true or not in a few years.

What's the technology stack behind the project?

The base CSS is Bootstrap that I modified to my liking. I chose Bootstrap due to it's great flexibility and support for various screen sizes. It looks great whether you are on a 4" mobile screen or a 27" monitor!

The search and results is provided by each music streaming provider's API. I took advantage of their various customization options and used a little bit of my own magic to make the results as quick and relevant as possible.

The "Intro" feature is a really easy to use JavaScript tool called Intro.js by Afshin.

The rest of the site is mainly just HTML5, JavaScript, and AJAX. I tried to stick with these technologies so that mobile devices would be able to use the website without having any problems.

What resources do you recommend for beginners to get started?

I think making something from an API would be great for someone with a basic programming knowledge as a lot of the work is already done for you. Most of the time a company's API is well documented and supported as well, which is a big plus.

We usually only recommend songs here on UPROXX, but what about the ways you can listen to said songs? Sometimes they’re on YouTube, other times they’re on SoundCloud, and Spotify can be a computer-slowing SOB to open. Enter: TuneCrawl, which searches songs on Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud, so you can listen right away.

Pandora, Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud are some of the common services I use when I need to listen to music. Each one offers something unique based on how I want to listen to music. Pandora knows what I like and I often discover new songs there, Spotify is great for when I need a playlist to match my taste, YouTube is good for music videos, and SoundCloud is my number one source for amazing remixes and song covers. TuneCrawl is a useful little web app for music lovers who, like me, use more than a single service to listen to songs. It lets you search for songs by artist name or by song title across three services: YouTube, Spotify and SoundCloud, from a single place. The songs can be played directly on TuneCrawl via the respective service’s media player.

TuneCrawl is simple enough to use; enter a song title or an artist’s name and hit enter. TuneCrawl is quite fast and will list search results within seconds. The search results are all separated by source. Click the play button next to a track listing to start listening to it.

The player’s visibility can be toggled by clicking the Show/Hide Player toggle at the bottom-left. If you click the title of the song, it will open the source page within the same tab. Songs can be shared on Twitter and Facebook, or purchased from Amazon.

According to our tests, TuneCrawl gives better results if you enter a song title rather than an artist’s name. This is normally not the case when you search on the supported services themselves. It stands to reason that TuneCrawl is using its own search instead of that of the services. The results themselves are limited to just six with no way to load more search results, or even open the search on any one of the services themselves.

TuneCrawl is a consolidated way to search across three services, but it isn’t as convenient as its supported services themselves when it comes to playback. What it needs is a way to create temporary playlists using songs from all three of the supported service. Also, the number of search results it provides are severely limited. The service should allow more search results to be browsed, and perhaps it should consider adding support for other popular services, such as Grooveshark.

Por mucho que la tendencia sea seleccionar un único servicio para cada función que Internet nos presta, es un hecho que la mayoría de nosotros, amantes de la música, acabamos teniendo distintas cuentas registradas en distintos sitios web y nuestras listas en Spotify, Pandora, Grooveshark o SoundCloud. Nos llega pues TuneCrawl con el objetivo de que podamos unir un poco nuestras listas para disfrutar de toda nuestra música desde una misma pantalla.

TuneCrawl nos ofrece la ventaja de poder visualizar nuestras listas en tres secciones: una para YouTube, una para SoundCloud y una para Spotify, separados en tres columnas, y además la posibilidad de reproducir la música desde el mismo sitio web gracias al media player integrado. Podremos buscar artistas y canciones en el mismo buscador de TuneCrawl, que nos mostrará los resultados separados en las columnas de cada servicio. Todas las canciones y artistas pueden compartirse en Twitter y Facebook.

Dado que cada uno de los servicios mencionados nos presta, dentro de su objetivo común, una función única (la opción de descubrir música que pueda gustarnos, la de hacernos buenas listas personalizadas, guardar nuestros vídeos musicales favoritos…), TuneCrawl es una buena opción para organizar nuestras listas y disfrutar de ellas desde un único sitio.

Searching for a song that you want to hear on the next second? Well, there are many ways you can do this; The Option one is Google – but it brings all song history and lyrics, Option two -search on YouTube, SoundCloud or Spotify. Option two is fine, but what if there is a super fast service that is going to crawl among your favourite music services like the YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify and brings all the results in one page?! That’s going to be nice right?!

TuneCrawl finds songs and provides you with an option to listen to it right away or buy it legally with the Amazon buy link. Ofcourse there are Share buttons too! What you have to do is just go to the TuneCrawl site and start typing your song name or the name of the artist. Results start populating instantly from YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify while you keep typing, when you find the right match, just click on the blue play button (seen at left of every item)- there comes your song with no hassle and with quick streaming! Remember that there are no registrations required and importantly no ads too! I liked it much! From here on no Google for songs, Just TuneCrawl!

Os usuários apaixonados por músicas estão sempre buscando canções na Internet, em diferentes plataformas. Para facilitar a vida de quem realiza as pesquisas, o site TuneCrawl encontra resultados de três páginas ao mesmo tempo: YouTube, Spotify e SoundCloud.

Basta acessar a página do TuneCrawl e, no campo de “search”, inserir o nome do cantor ou da música que você deseja. A busca é extremamente rápida e os resultados exibidos são mostrados em três colunas: uma correspondente a cada serviço. Além disso, ainda é possível compartilhá-los via Facebook e Twitter ou comprar as músicas na Amazon.

Para reproduzir o conteúdo desejado, basta clicar no ícone de “play” exibido ao lado dos nomes dos arquivos. Assim, você ouve a canção diretamente naquela página, sem nem precisar abrir outra janela. O site tem um player embutido que reproduz a música para o usuário.

TuneCrawl est un service web très pratique et qui risque notamment d’intéresser tous les mélomanes ou, plus globalement, tous les internautes qui aiment parfois écouter un peu de musique sans avoir à quitter leur navigateur. Pourquoi ? Tout simplement parce que ce dernier va vous permettre de rechercher des pistes dans les catalogues de Spotify, YouTube et SoundCloud, le tout depuis une seule et même page. Grâce à lui, vous n’aurez donc plus besoin d’ouvrir plusieurs onglets pour trouver chaussure à votre pied. Autant dire que le gain de temps n’est pas négligeable, d’autant plus que TuneCrawl ne se contente pas de vous permettre de rechercher de la musique. Non car si vous le souhaitez, vous pourrez même l’écouter !

La journée a été très dur et c’est précisément pour cette raison que vous avez une folle envie d’écouter le Carmen de Bizet. N’ayant pas de service attitré, vous ouvrez donc un premier onglet pour faire une recherche rapide sur YouTube. Manque de chance, vous ne trouvez pas forcément votre bonheur. La faute à la qualité de l’enregistrement de la piste. Pas grave, vous poursuivez votre chemin et vous vous rendez cette fois sur la version web de Spotify. Bonheur et volupté, vous trouvez tout de suite chaussure à votre pied. Il faut dire aussi que Bizet, ce n’est que du bonheur et il est d’ailleurs fort possible que d’autres musiciens aient repris l’opéra tragique à leur compte. Pourquoi ne pas aller faire un tour sur SoundCloud pour voir de quoi il en retourne ?

Rechercher de la musique sur YouTube, Spotify et SoundCloud en simultanée, c’est possible avec TuneCrawl.

Chouette aventure, c’est un fait, mais cette dernière vous aurez tout-de-même pris quelques minutes et il est même possible que cette recherche vous ait contraint à ouvrir au moins trois onglets dans votre navigateur. A la longue, ça peut très vite devenir pénible et c’est précisément pour cette raison que des petits malins ont eu l’idée de concevoir un service pour regrouper ces trois plateformes au sein d’une seule et même page. Ce service, c’est bien évidemment TuneCrawl.
TuneCrawl : une interface simple et accessible

En arrivant sur la page d’accueil de ce dernier, vous allez vous retrouver face à un champ de recherche. Aucune surprise, c’est là que vous devrez caser tous les termes de votre recherche. Ensuite, une fois la requête validée, TuneCrawl va vous afficher un peu plus bas sur la page trois colonnes de résultats : une pour Spotify, une autre pour YouTube et une dernière pour SoundCloud. L’interface, quoi que très minimaliste, s’avère particulièrement facile à prendre en main et chaque résultat sera ainsi accompagné d’un gros bouton bleu qui vous permettra de lancer la lecture de la piste associée dans le lecteur embarqué. Lecteur que vous pourrez d’ailleurs faire apparaître ou disparaître d’un seul clic.

Toujours dans ces colonnes, on trouvera également trois boutons qui vous offriront la possibilité de partager la piste sur Twitter, sur Facebook ou même de l’acheter sur Amazon. Avec une petite commission au passage pour les concepteurs du service, évidemment. Bref, si vous en avez marre de passer des heures et des heures à arpenter ces trois services pour trouver votre bonheur, alors TuneCrawl risque de vous plaire.

Se passam o dia a ouvir música na internet, poderão gostar de ter este TuneCrawl numa tab sempre aberta no vosso browser. Embora seja possível encontrarmos as músicas que queremos ouvir em inúmeros serviços na web (como por exemplo o YouTube), este TuneCrawl simplifica o processo ao apresentar-nos os resultados agregados de vários serviços e que podemos ouvir imediatamente usando o seu player integrado sem sair da página.

Ou seja, se vos estiver a apetecer ouvir Pink Floyd, o TuneCrawl rapidamente vos apresenta inúmeras músicas da banda, no YouTube, SoundCloud, e Spotify... todas a um simples toque de distância.

E sim, também por lá encontram músicas do Tony Carreira... para o bem e para o mal.. :)
