DSpoty

CRAN status Lifecycle: stable Build Status

R Package to Get Multiple Information from Spotify API.

Installation

You can install the package from the CRAN repository:

install.packages("DSpoty")

or try the development version from GitHub:

devtools::install_github('https://github.com/AlbertoAlmuinha/DSpoty')

Authentication

You need to get your Spotify API Client ID and Secret ID. You can get yours here . The best way to authenticate is to set your ID’s to system environment variables (client_id and secret_id). If you prefer, you can use your ID’s en each function to call the function get_spotify_access_token, but it’s not recomendable.

Sys.setenv(client_id = 'client_id')
Sys.setenv(client_secret = 'client_secret')

access_token <- DSpoty::get_spotify_access_token()

Usage

Get Artist Information

You can get an artist Spotify information with the function get_artists. This function returns data like the name of the artist, links to open in spotify, popularity, number of followers or musical genre.

artist <- get_artist('Arctic Monkeys')
