class platypush.plugins.music.spotify.MusicSpotifyPlugin(client_id: Optional[str] = None, client_secret: Optional[str] = None, **kwargs)[source]

Plugin to interact with the user’s Spotify library and players.

In order to use this plugin to interact with your Spotify account you need to register a new app on the Spotify developers website, whitelist the callback URL of your Platypush host and authorize the app to your account:

  • Create a developer app on https://developer.spotify.com.

  • Get the app’s client_id and client_secret.

  • Whitelist the authorization callback URL on the Platypush machine, usually in the form http(s)://your-platypush-hostname-or-local-ip:8008/spotify/auth_callback (you need the http Platypush backend to be enabled).

  • You can then authorize the app by opening the following URL in a browser: https://accounts.spotify.com/authorize?client_id=<client_id>&response_type=code&redirect_uri=http(s)://your-platypush-hostname-or-local-ip:8008/spotify/auth_callback&scope=<comma-separated-list-of-scopes>&state=<some-random-string>.

This is the list of scopes required for full plugin functionalities:

  • user-read-playback-state

  • user-modify-playback-state

  • user-read-currently-playing

  • user-read-recently-played

  • app-remote-control

  • streaming

  • playlist-modify-public

  • playlist-modify-private

  • playlist-read-private

  • playlist-read-collaborative

  • user-library-modify

  • user-library-read

Alternatively, you can call any of the methods from this plugin over HTTP API, and the full authorization URL should be printed on the application logs/stdout.
