clj-spotify is a client library for accessing the Spotify Web API. clj-spotify aims to be identical to Spotify's Web API when it comes to naming of endpoints, path elements and query parameters therefore the documentation found here is very short. Please read through the Spotify API Endpoint Reference, a one to one mapping from the endpoints to functions in this library should be possible.
Each function takes a map
m of parameters and a sometimes optional oauth token
t. Function names are the same as the names found in Spotify's API Endpoint Reference. A function call to retrieve a track from Spotify then has the function signature
(get-a-track m t) and a function call to get an album's tracks has the function signature
(get-an-albums-tracks m t) and so on.
m holds both path elements and query parameters.
Key names and value types in
m are the same as those found in Spotify's API Endpoint Reference for path elements and query parameters. Integer values such as
:offset can be specified either as integers or strings in
For a simple method to obtain an access token through the Client Credentials flow, use
clj-spotify.util/get-access-token. If you need oauth2 authentication through the Authorization Code Flow (for example, to use endpoints which access private user information), see this blog post on how to roll your own: OAuth2 is easy - illustrated in 50 lines of Clojure.
clj-spotify returns the data received from the Spotify Web API unaltered but the response will be converted from json to a Clojure map.
Error messages received from Spotify are returned unaltered as received from the servers. If an API call would result in an exception in clj-spotify this will be returned on the same format as Spotify's error messages but with the
:status key set to
Exceptionand the result of calling
(.getMessage e) on the Exception
e associated with the
Each function has a basic doc string but if the usage still is unclear please consult Spotify's API Endpoint Reference.
