Check album availability

Christoffer

Hello everybody!

 

Here is another website using the Spotify API (you can't be bored with this API :) ). This website shows in which countries albums are available. Hopefully it will make it easier for people to check availability on albums and why certain albums are greyed out. 

 

All you need to do is to enter a specific album or an artist/band to get all the albums. The website is found here.

 

Feedback is appreciated and thanks in advance!

 

One last thing made this website quite quick so the design isn't so appealing.

Does it take URIs?
I get no results found on: spotify:album:2jOX1jSecCdPDEr9ab8Exj

It definitely does exist: http://ws.spotify.com/lookup/1/?uri=spotify:album:2jOX1jSecCdPDEr9ab8Exj

Also, would it be possible to match the album name to other releases of the same album since in the API there can be multiple copies for different regions? Just a future idea! :D

Hmm can't seem to get it working.

I've entered some artists, e.g. Metallica but got no results at all.

Also tried the Spotify URI or the http link.. to no avail - any tricks on how to get that working? :D

 

Edit: Nvm, my bad! I've pressed enter and didn't use the Search button! Now it works! 

First thing I'd suggest, make it work with enter haha :D

 

But that's pretty cool!

I haven't implemented search by Spotify URI since you need to use the lookup service then and not search service, but i could fix that. If you search for a album it will show all the releases of that album.

 

@Marco i found a bug with hitting enter instead of clicking so try to click search if you haven't done that :)
