Front End Capstone: Brewify

This is my front-end capstone project for Nashville Software School. The app allows the user to search for an artist they're listening to, and get a few beer recommendations to pair with their music. It also allows for opposite search (search for the beer you're drinking, and get back a few artist recommendations).

Getting Started

First, you'll need to clone the project to your machine:

$ git clone https://github.com/sarahmorris926/Capstone-Brewify.git

Next, you need to run "npm install" in your terminal and start two servers: one as a local server, and one node server. The Node server code can be found here. You will need to clone it or fork it and cd into the file you put it in. The Node server can be started using this command in the terminal:

$ node server.js

After you start the node server, which should be on PORT 6060 which should not intervene with the server you start for the capstone project, which if forked, will be PORT 8080.

You should be able to go to your local server on your browser and view the project. You will need to click the "Spotify Login" button first, as Spotify requires authentication in order to search for any artists.


  1. Click the "Spotify Login" button in order to begin searching for artists
  2. Type an artist's name and click the "Search" button
  3. Click on the artist you are listening to (if you're unsure if it's the right artist, click the play icon to the right of the name to bring up their artist page on Spotify)
  4. Get your beer type and click "Get Beers" to get specific recommendations!
  5. Click on the specific beers to get a description (if provided by BreweryDB API)
