bon matin everyone!
as quickly shown during yesterday’s meetup, this is VL.Spotify, a (small) set of nodes that allow you to interact with Spotify’s web API.
for now, it allows you to :
- Login to your Spotify app
- Control your playback (play, pause, next, previous, volume)
- Retrieve all informations about the current track
sadly, the API does not have real-time capabilities, and thus does not have notifications when a track starts/ends. this has been requested many (many many) times on the internets but apparently Spotify does not plan to make it available.
it comes with a patch tutorial that explains how to create a Spotify application and retrieve your key/secrets and derive a token from those, a pair of HowTo’s and a little demo app of a cute minimal controller :
as always please shout for suggestions, bug reports or anything else!
