Home Assistant Spotify Lovelace Card
DISCLAIMER: This project is a private open source project and doesn't have any connection with Spotify.
This card supports listing the users currently available devices and the users playlists on Spotify. Choose an online media player and click on a playlist to play it on the device. This component will query the current playback from the Spotify Integration and tries to reflect the currently playing playlist.
The forum thread can be found here
See release information on Github for release notes
Spotify Integration and spotcast have to be installed (Spotcast is needed for many other things than playing on cast devices). This card should work in all newer major browsers. If it does not work for you please provide detailed reports in an issue ticket.
Follow the HACS instructions when installing it.
Copy the content of the
dist folder to
www/community/spotify-card/ in your Home Assistant configuration directory. Create these folders if they do not exist.
Then you have to add spotify card to your resources. This can be done via
Settings -> Lovelace Dashboards -> Resources. Add this path:
If you do not have the
Resources tab available, you have to enable the advanced mode for Lovelace. To do so, click on your username on your Home Assistant dashboard and enanble the setting.
Add the card via lovelace to your dashboard. All of the settings can be configured via the visual editor.
If you want to hide specific devices, you can do so in the advanced tab of the visual editor. If you are not using the visual editor see YAML mode.
You can enter as many regular expressions as you like, separated by a comma. If any of these rules apply to a device-name it will be hidden. The rules are evaluated against the whole device-name so
room will not match
bedroom. Here are a few examples:
.*roomhides all devices ending with room
bath.*,kids.*hides all devices which start with bath or kids
You can filter the playlists you want on a specific card instance. Just enter as many regular expressions as you like, separated by a comma. Playlists are first requested through spotcast websocket API, and then filtered. It means that if you fetch 10 playlists, only those 10 will be filtered.
The filters are inclusive, so it means that, as soon as you set at least one filter, a playlist will be included only if it matches at least one filter.
Filters can apply on any top-level attributes (ie any attributes defined in interface).
You can specify filters in 2 ways:
- with only pattern, ex
.*rock.*, then it will filter only on
- with field + pattern, ex
description:.*rock.*, then it will filter on given field.
Known Spotify Connect devices
You can specify a pre-known Spotify Connect devices that are not showing up in the devices list although they are available in the network. This is useful for smart WiFi speakers that are not connected specifically to your Spotify account and are available visible only inside the home WiFi network, such as Sonos speakers.
To add a device, start a playback on it and then click the add button in the card editor. You can also manually configure devices, if know the device id (see spotcast guide for finding the device id).
If you are not using the visual configuration of Lovelace you can add the card like this:
