I'm starting a new project:
I love techno parties and it's one of the few things that really is amiss in Asia.
Party'ing in Asia usually means:
Buying a table with friends, spending at least $50 a person on a big bottle of whatever alcohol and then standing around the table, being cool and maybe approaching other tables, but this doesn't happen often unless one is drunk and thus brave enough.
I hate this. For me, this is not at all what a techno party should be. And mind you, most music is EDM.
Horrible horrible horrible music 😀
But where does one find these parties? Well even though I spend so many years in Asia, I never really partied there. Except in Japan.
Only data source I have right now is Resident advisor. if you know of any others, please message me here or on Twitter.
I've been doing front-end for almost 9 years now. But only have little experience with the backend, apart from using Meteor with MongoDB for date a nomad.
I've never built a scraper to get data and parse this all into a frontend.
I've been learning about JAMstack and it's been amazing so far. I created a static site with Gatsby before. But now want a more "dynamic" one. Have a scraper work once a day, bind webhooks to Netlify to display and deploy the new data.
So here we go!
Tools of the trade:
- Gatsby for the frontend
- MongoDB to hold my documents
- Nodejs and cheerio to scrape
- Netlify and Bitbucket for hosting and deployment
So far I have been able to install Strapi, create new collections and pull them out with Gatsby.
Learning new stuff such as Gatsby-image, Graphql, while still being quite new to Gatsby as well. So many challenges ahead.
Right now my goal is to just create a simple list of events. Descriptions and images within a page or a modal (not sure how I want to display event data yet).
Would love to hear suggestions, data sources, etc! :)
