Equestrian Beats web app by djazz

What is it?

This is a web app using the eqbeats public json api to let you browse eqbeats without music interrupts! It is a music player with support for viewing the toplists, playlists and browse other artists music!

Try it out!

You could install this on your own server, or you can even use it locally if you compile the LESS stylesheet to CSS first, because it's using Ajax (can't fetch stuff locally). Just clone this repo into a directory and enjoy! It's all static files so it should work on any webserver (apache, nginx, express..)

There isn't much to configure, it works out of the box!

The app is written in CoffeeScript and relies on the MVC framework Marionette (extended from Backbone), originally created by Derick Bailey.
