A wrapper for the node wrapper for libspotify. Because - you know - you can never have to many levels of abstraction. Also, the node-spotify lib is not entirely, but almost, unlike any code you would ever write or access in node.
It also wraps the new spotify web api so the songs passed around are in the new format even if, internally, the played songs are in the old. Search is performed through the api instead of through libspotify.
Make sure the prerequisites are met. Then install:
npm install node-libspotify
Create a Spotify client and login (requires a premium account)
var Spotify = ;var appKeyPath = '[path to spotify_appkey.key]';var spotify = appkeyFile: appKeyPath;spotify;
var track =uri: 'spotify:track:7gss5MqLM5sHlHOl2EAbrp';spotifyplayer;spotifyplayer;spotifyplayer;spotifyplayer;
Create an app key at https://devaccount.spotify.com/my-account/keys/
Download key as [Binary] and save it as
spotify_appkey.key in app root
brew updatebrew upgradebrew install homebrew/binary/libspotify
If linking fails
sudo chown -R `whoami` /usr/local/share/man/man3 or whatever directory the linking function is complaining about,
brew link libspotify
If install fails
sudo chown -R `whoami` ~/.npm/
If run fails with Error: dlopen
sudo ln -s /usr/local/opt/libspotify/lib/libspotify.12.1.51.dylib /usr/local/opt/libspotify/lib/libspotify to symlink the dylib
