Spotipy - a Python client for The Spotify Web API
Spotipy is a thin client library for the Spotify Web API.
This is my bootleg version where I have started by merging in various PRs of interest to me (that also have not yet been merged upstream).
I might also work on expanding the library and possibly even bug fixing.
Spotipy's full documentation is online at Spotipy Documentation.
If you already have Python on your system you can install the library simply by downloading the distribution, unpack it and install in the usual fashion:
python setup.py install
You can also install it using a popular package manager with
pip install spotipy
- Requests - spotipy requires the requests package to be installed
To get started, simply install spotipy, create a Spotify object and call methods:
sp = spotipy.Spotify()
results = sp.search(q='weezer', limit=20)
for i, t in enumerate(results['tracks']['items']):
print ' ', i, t['name']
A full set of examples can be found in the online documentation and in the Spotipy examples directory.
If you have suggestions, bugs or other issues specific to this library, file them here. Or just send me a pull request.
