Why Beatbump?

Beatbump is a fully-featured music listening experience, while helping to ease your privacy concerns associated with other platforms.

Some of Beatbump's features includes:

  • Automix for continued listening
  • No ads
  • Background play on mobile devices*
  • Search for artists, playlists, songs, and albums
    • Note that all playback is audio only (for now)
  • Local playlist management
    • Stored in-browser with IndexedDB
    • Can save songs individually under 'Favorites'
    • Peer-to-Peer data synchronization (using WebRTC)
  • Group Sessions
    • Achieved using a WebRTC mesh
  • Uses a custom wrapper around the YouTube Music API

...and so much more!

[1] iOS updates may break this from time to time, but works as of iOS 15.6

Note: Still figuring out how to use Docker! Got a suggestion? Open an issue, thanks!


docker-compose (production)

The quickest way to host a Beatbump instance is with Docker. Once you have it installed, you can run:

docker-compose up

The app will now be accessible from https://localhost:443 / http://localhost:3000.

docker-compose (development)

(More details coming soon!)


You can find (temporary, incomplete, and in-progress) API documentation here:

It's recommended (and appreciated) to host your own instance of Beatbump for public projects that want to use the data -- especially if you anticipate you will be making a large amount of requests. Thanks!
