A mock of libspotify for use in development of language bindings.

This project was split out of pyspotify, so that it could be reused by the developers of other language bindings for libspotify, such as the Node.js and Ruby bindings.

Coordination of the development efforts takes place on GitHub.

A Debian package of libmockspotify is available from Mopidy's APT archive.


$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install
