Echonester

Simple Echonest search library that provides song search and best match retrieval from the Echonest API

Install

npm install echonester

Usage:

In your code, require the echonester module as follows.

var echonester = require('echonester');
 
var client = echonester();
 
client.search('foo fighters', 'breakout', function (err, result) {
  // work with results here...
});

Options:

  • apikey - Your Echonest API key
  • bucket - An array of bucket values
  • searchResultLimit - Max number of results to return from search (defaults to 10)
  • searchUrl - URL of API endpoint (defaults to https://developer.echonest.com/api/v4/song/search)
  • timeout - Timeout for request in milliseconds (defaults to 10000)
var echonester = require('echonester');
 
var client = echonester({
  apikey : 'YOUR KEY HERE',
  searchResultLimit : 10,
  searchUrl : 'https://developer.echonest.com/api/v4/song/search',
  timeout : 10000
});

Find Best Match

Find the single best match for a search:

client.findBestMatch(artist, title, callback)

var client = (require('echonester')());
 
client.findBestMatch('beck', 'loser', function (err, result) {
  if (err) {
    console.error(err);
  }
 
  console.log(result);
});

Which returns the following response:

{ artist_id: 'ARC2XR11187FB5CC95',
  id: 'SOGKSOJ14373B756E5',
  artist_name: 'Beck',
