iheart

iHeart Radio JavaScript API

Query the iHeart Radio API to search for internet radio stations. Get their metadata including name and logos, and resolve high-quality stream URLs to play.

Installation

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save iheart

Example

// search for a station, pick the first match
const matches = await iheart.search(process.argv[2] || '1077 the bone')
const station = matches.stations[0]
 
// finally you can get the source stream URL which can
// be requested over HTTP and fed into an audio decoder,
// or whatever your application does with it…
const url = await iheart.streamURL(station)
 
console.log(url)
// https://18533.live.streamtheworld.com:443/KSANFMAAC_SC

Both search and streamURL have an option to specify CORS proxy so that these APIs work in the web browser

// use specific proxy
const matches2 = await iheart.search('MyFM', { proxy: 'https://mycoolproxy.com' })
// use default proxy
// (which is https://cors.now.sh/ if inside a browser or no proxy if not)
const matches3 = await iheart.search('Jazz')
// do not use proxy (good for server side code)
const url2 = await iheart.streamURL(station, { proxy: null })
// another way to disable proxy
const url3 = await iheart.streamURL(station, { proxy: '' })
