    This Eleventy plugin automatically embeds responsive Spotify tracks from URLs in Markdown files.

    ⚡️ Installation

    In your Eleventy project, install the plugin through npm:

    $ npm i eleventy-plugin-embed-spotify

    Then add it to your Eleventy config file:

    const embedSpotify = require("eleventy-plugin-embed-spotify");
    module.exports = function(eleventyConfig) {

    🛠 Usage

    To embed a Spotify widget into any Markdown page, paste its URL into a new line. The URL should be the only thing on that line.

    Markdown file example:

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nam vehicula, elit vel condimentum porta, purus.
    Maecenas non velit nibh. Aenean eu justo et odio commodo ornare. In scelerisque sapien at.

    ⚙️ Settings

    You can configure the plugin to change its behavior by passing an options object to the addPlugin function:

    eleventyConfig.addPlugin(embedSpotify, {
      // edit options here

    Plugin default options

    Edit any of the default values in this options object to override the plugin behavior. These are the default settings, which will apply to all embed instances. Currently there’s no way to configure individual embeds.

      // Spotify’s iframe embed requires the `allow` attribute to include `encrypted-media`
      // in order to enable full-track playback.
      // Substitute your preferred string to allow other iframe behaviors
      allowAttrs: 'encrypted-media',
      // The Spotify player iframe is always wrapped in a div with this class.
      // Substitute your preferred string to rename the wrapper class
      embedClass: 'eleventy-plugin-embed-spotify',
      // Default iframe height, in pixels
      height: '380',
      // default iframe width, in pixels
      width: '300'
      // width: '100%' // Use 100% width value to make the player responsive!

    Supported URL patterns

    The plugin supports common Spotify URL variants as well. These should also work in your Markdown files.:

    <!-- Works with individual tracks, albums, artists, podcast episodes, and playlists: -->
    <!-- Playlists work with or without usernames: -->
    <!-- No protocol: -->
    <!-- With or without HTTPS: -->
    <!-- With or without 'www' or 'open' subdomains: -->
    <!-- URLs with extra parameters: -->

    If you run across a URL pattern that you think should work, but doesn’t, please file an issue!

    ⚠️ Notes and caveats

    • This plugin is deliberately designed only to embed tracks when the URL is on its own line, and not inline with other text.
    • To do this, it uses a regular expression to recognize relevant Spotify URLs. Currently these are the limitations on what it can recognize in a Markdown parser’s HTML output:
      • The URL must be wrapped in a paragraph tag: <p>
      • It may also be wrapped in an anchor tag, (inside the paragraph): <a>
      • The URL string may have whitespace around it
    • I’ve tried to accommodate common variants, but there are conceivably valid Spotify URLs that wouldn’t get recognized. Please file an issue if you run into an edge case!
    • This plugin uses transforms, so it alters Eleventy’s HTML output as it’s generated. It doesn’t alter the source Markdown.
    • The embedded player is not responsive by default. Spotify’s default player is 300 pixels wide by 380 pixels tall.
    • New in 1.1.0: The embedded podcast player is responsive, in keeping with Spotify’s defaults. Currently, all podcast episode players will be 232 pixels tall, with 100% width.
