This is a little fun project inspired by Ryan Hoover: https://twitter.com/rrhoover/sta... Liking Ryan's idea I started to google a little and discovered this nice billboard charts api: http://billboard.modulo.site/ Since it kinda halfway solved the problem already, I was able to hack the app together within 24h on my day off with vuejs in the front and nodejs in the back. 👨🏻‍💻🚀🤩 Enjoy and let me know what you think! ;)

@derkinzi LOVE that you made this, just 24 hours after I tweeted that random idea. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Apparently Walk Like An Egyptian by the Bangles was #1 on my birthday. I don't think I've ever heard that song. 🙊
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@rrhoover I do. But don't worry I've Wham! on #1 so yours is way cooler. ;) I think my only highlight is actually Axel F on #4. 😎

This is amazing. Only request is allow us to put the date in the url so it's shareable.
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@joshmanders You already can: when you hit the share button it automatically shares with the date. :)

@derkinzi Ah I see. It'd be nice if the url updated when you landed on the page, because I share in places that aren't icons there, such as IRC/Slack, and I just copy and paste the url from the address bar.
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@joshmanders I see! Let me check if I can do this quickly :)

@derkinzi The more I think about it, it'd be nice if the url was birthhits.com/1985/05/25 (my birthday), then allows me to remove 25 from the url and see all top hits from May 1985, then remove 05 and get top hits from 1985.

@joshmanders That would be awesome and allow for quite some more features, alas the API I use only supports requests on a daily basis...

Nice, love it!

Fun project =) quite enjoyable! If I have one suggestion, it'd be to allow to type the birth date instead of necessarily going through the calendar ;)
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@clo_spa Agree. I definitely need to work on the datepicker. :)
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@clo_spa I updated the datepicker - still no typing but it's way nicer to pick a date now :)
Clo 🦊@clo_spa · Product manager & music listener
@derkinzi Hey, it looks great! =) I can't submit my birthdate on mobile though x) but that will come
Sebastian Kinz|ingerMaker@derkinzi
@clo_spa It should work actually... Where exactly does it fail? Do you get authenticated with spotify and returned to the app?
Clo 🦊@clo_spa · Product manager & music listener
@derkinzi Once I've selected my yeah, month and date, I have no way to press 'enter' and submit my date.
