    SPOTICLY

    Browse, control and listen to spotify from the command line (mac os only for now, windows support might come later)

    Why would I need this?

    I am on dual screen at work and I was fed up with switching from command line/ editor to spotify all the time, also I was not happy with already existing CLI solutions, I made this CLI utility to spare me some time. Context switching aside, it's actually even faster than using the GUI.

    INSTALL AND SETUP

    INSTALL

    npm install -g spoticly
    
    

    FIRST USE

    Get your credentials (spotify client ID and secret token) by creating an app at this address: https://developer.spotify.com/my-applications It's fast and easy, put whatever in the form.

    Spoticly will ask for it the first time you use it.

    Usage

    Listen to an artist

    By default, you will get to choose among an artist's albums using this command:

        spoticly artist radiohead
    

    Use the '--choose' option or just 'ch' if you need to choose among several artists, it's useful if several artists have similar names, ex:

        spoticly artist ch radiohead
        spoticly artist --choose radiohead
    
        (will give you a list of artists to choose from)
    

    Use the 'all' option if you want to select not only albums but also singles and compilations (without this option, you will get to choose among albums only)

        spoticly artist all nirvana
    

    Use the '--top-tracks' option, or just 'tt' if you just want to listen to the artist's top tracks, ex:

        spoticly artist tt qotsa
    
        (will play Queen of the Stone Age's top tracks)
    

    Listen to a playlist

    Use this command to choose a playlist or its shortcut 'pl':

        spoticly playlist "chanson française"    
        spoticly pl "chanson française"
    

    Listen to a specific track

    You can search for a specific track using the "track" command, or 'tr'

        spoticly track "song for the dead"
        spoticly tr "song for the dead"
    

    Navigate inside an album or a playlist

    Use 'track-list' or 'tr' to display and navigate inside an album or playlist

        spoticly --track-list
        spoticly tr
    

    CONTROLS AND OTHER COMMANDS

    Use the --help command to get a detailed list of all features (play/pause/next/previous etc...)
