[BETA] Download HypeMachine Songs Website

Published 2012-10-10 on Farid Zakaria's Blog

Seriously. Beta

For those in a rush and want a tl;dr; navigate to http://hypemfinder.fzakaria.com

Hey everyone! I decided to throw up what I had so far for the site. It's working but a lot of functionality is missing however the most important part (downloading the songs) is extremely functional :)


  1. First navigate to http://hypemfinder.fzakaria.com
  2. Enter a valid hypem.com url (i.e. http://hypem.com/popular or http://hypem.com/track/1qb1t)
  3. Click Search
  4. It may take a few seconds (if searching a lot of songs), but the list of found songs will apear
  5. Click the download button and enjoy!

Help, Feedback, Donations and Criticism Appreciated

This was honestly a test toy project to learn Django so don't expect too much however I'd love some user feedback on features, usability or even get a hold of me if you'd like to contribute!
There's a few things left to still do to make it polished and I'd love some help with it.

To do list

  • Figure out URL scheme and remove the /hypemfinder/ app name at the end
  • Buy domain name (figure out domain name)
  • Figure out how to properly setup logging. Right now when I perform manage.py actions it creates a logfile that Apache cannot write to!
  • Add Contact/About/Tutorial page
  • Add detail page for songs
  • Add extended search functionality to make use of Hypem.com's search bar!
  • Cleanup CSS and make prettier
