DWELLING OF DUELS ARCHIVE EXPLORER
I've been working on this project for a while now leading up to the 15th anniversary of DoD, and I need some QA testing/feedback on it.
Inspired by the music player known as "vip.swf" , I noticed how we have over 3000+ SONGS in the DoD archive, but with no easy way to listen to them all in a playlist or shuffle mode. I went about to try and fix that.
Try it out, if you find any songs that are broken/any other bugs, let me know! I've been using this a lot to listen to tracks while writing the Legacy Month Artist Spotlights, as well as while working on this project itself (so meta).
- Search bar that filters within song title, game, artist, and month title
- Hit the stars on the left to save a track to your favorites (saved to your browser, different browser = no favorites). Hit the "Faves" heading to filter the list down to your favorites
- Download link next to the fav button
- Shuffle mode
- Volume slider
- Images are broken when viewing on my s3 site
- I didn't test it at all on mobile so it might not work at all (going to redesign with a mobile-first design in the future, wanted to get this out as soon as it was functional though)
I can't get anything to play when I hit the shuffle button. It just kind of freezes up for a second. Then when I hit the play button and then hit next, it works. My expectation from using other music streaming apps is that when you hit the shuffle button it'll automatically start with a random song if nothing is playing.
The volume bar seems really small like it is kind of just squeezed in there. Might be better to make that slightly bigger and make the length of the time bar a bit shorter.
clicking the "progress bar" before doing anything else results in a JS error popup here on Firefox.
