MySwar is out
Ever since I joined Mavrix, friends have asked me about the project that I am working on. I have given different versions. But now that MySwar is open to public, here is the almost definitive description "MySwar is the complete guide to Hindi film music. It lets you browse your favorite Hindi film albums and songs and get a treasure trove of information about them. It’s also got a great music recommendation feature. Rate songs you like and we’ll tell you what other songs you might like."
As of now we have details of 4000+ albums, 22000+ songs and 3200+ artists. We have covered only hind movies from 1971 to 2011. I know, I know there are lots more to do. We need do 50s, 60s hindi films and we also need to do non film music. Well all I can say is its in progress.
Two best parts of the sites are Similar Songs suggestion using our internal recipe for each song. The recipe is not there yet. We are improving it almost on day today basis. But its worth showing off. Have a look and let me know what you feel.
Next one is discover based on your likes and ratings. Rate the songs you like and MySwar will suggest you songs based on it. Again discover algorithm gets updated almost on daily basis.
It's a standard LAMP stack, python and MongoDB in this case. I will probably write a detailed post on the technology and platform choices one day. Until then go ahead register for an account and enjoy. Of course suggestions are more than welcome.
