Communicate with the Spotify's web helper process to control some basic aspects of spotify
Spotify-Local: A multi-platform API to control the local Spotify Client
Spotify-Local library is designed to make controlling the Spotify client on your local machine possible! This is a wrapper for the web helper process which exposes a simple api. Spotify-Local is inspired by SpotifyAPI-NET. This library allows you to perform simple actions quickly, or listen to events and register callbacks when a song changes, or the pause button is pushed.
When using this library you automatically get:
The ability to play/pause the current song
The ability to change tracks
You can register callbacks and listen for events when the state of Spotify changes
A nice context manager api using with
$ pipenv install spotify-local
Only Python 3.3+ is supported.
Tutorial & Usage
Connect to the Spotify Client (Spotify must be open to do this):
>>> from spotify_local import SpotifyLocal >>> with SpotifyLocal() as s: pass
Pause the Spotify Client:
>>> with SpotifyLocal() as s: s.pause()
Grab the current state of the Spotify client, including now playing information:
>>> with SpotifyLocal() as s: print(s.get_current_status())
Play a playlist, song, album, artist, etc using a Spotify uri link:
>>> with SpotifyLocal() as s: s.playURI('spotify:track:0thLhIqWsqqycEqFONOyhu')
Register a callback and listen for events:
>>> from spotify_local import SpotifyLocal >>> s = SpotifyLocal() >>> @s.on('track_change') >>> def test(event): ... print(event) >>> s.listen(blocking=False) >>> print("Do more stuff because that runs in the background")
