    Node Spotify API 🚀 🎶

    A simple to use API library for the Spotify REST API.

    Installation

    npm install --save node-spotify-api

    API

    Currently there are two methods available, search and request 🔍

    Search

    search is the EASIEST way to find an artist, album, or track.

    search: function({ type: 'artist OR album OR track', query: 'My search query', limit: 20 }, callback);

    Example

    var Spotify = require('node-spotify-api');
     
    var spotify = new Spotify({
      id: <your spotify client id>,
      secret: <your spotify client secret>
    });
     
    spotify.search({ type: 'track', query: 'All the Small Things' }, function(err, data) {
      if (err) {
        return console.log('Error occurred: ' + err);
      }
     
    console.log(data); 
    });

    Note: The limit property is optional and the search will default to 20 if one is not supplied.

    Usage with Promises

    This package also optionally works with promises. Just omit the callback parameter and the search method returns a promise object containing the response:

    var Spotify = require('node-spotify-api');
     
    var spotify = new Spotify({
      id: <your spotify client id>,
      secret: <your spotify client secret>
    });
     
    spotify
      .search({ type: 'track', query: 'All the Small Things' })
      .then(function(response) {
        console.log(response);
      })
      .catch(function(err) {
        console.log(err);
      });

    Request

    request can be used to make API requests to any Spotify endpoint you supply.

    Example

    var Spotify = require('node-spotify-api');
     
    var spotify = new Spotify({
      id: <your spotify client id>,
      secret: <your spotify client secret>
    });
     
    spotify
      .request('https://api.spotify.com/v1/tracks/7yCPwWs66K8Ba5lFuU2bcx')
      .then(function(data) {
        console.log(data); 
      })
      .catch(function(err) {
        console.error('Error occurred: ' + err); 
      });

    Don't have a Spotify client id and client secret?

    The Spotify API requires an authentication token to work. This package will perform all of the work of generating an authentication token for you, but you will still need to supply a client id and client secret.

    Sign up for a Spotify developer account here. If you already have a Spotify account, you'll just have to log in. A membership can be paid or free, it makes no difference when it comes to using the Spotify API.

    Once you're signed up, navigate to https://developer.spotify.com/my-applications/. You should be presented with the following page:

    Applications

    Click the button to "Create An App". Once you're at the next page, fill in the required fields.
