spotify-web

Node.js implementation of the Spotify Web protocol

node-spotify-web

This module implements the "Spotify Web" WebSocket protocol that is used on Spotify's Web UI.

This module is heavily inspired by the original open-source Python implementation: Hexxeh/spotify-websocket-api.

$ npm install spotify-web

Here's an example of logging in to the Spotify server and creating a session. Then requesting the metadata for a given track URI, and playing the track audio file through the speakers:

var lame = require('lame');
var Speaker = require('speaker');
var Spotify = require('spotify-web');
var uri = process.argv[2] || 'spotify:track:6tdp8sdXrXlPV6AZZN2PE8';
 
// Spotify credentials... 
var username = process.env.USERNAME;
var password = process.env.PASSWORD;
 
Spotify.login(username, password, function (errspotify) {
  if (err) throw err;
 
  // first get a "Track" instance from the track URI 
  spotify.get(uri, function (errtrack) {
    if (err) throw err;
    console.log('Playing: %s - %s', track.artist[0].name, track.name);
 
    // play() returns a readable stream of MP3 audio data 
    track.play()
      .pipe(new lame.Decoder())
      .pipe(new Speaker())
      .on('finish', function () {
        spotify.disconnect();
      });
 
  });
});
