Spotify Now Playing Agent

This script utilizes Growl diagnostic messages to capture song change notifications and writes the new song metadata to a file in /tmp/spotify.current for scripting purposes. The script will also set the iChat or Adium's status message if you are running one of them.

Installation

  1. Move com.spotify.NowPlayingAgent.plist to ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
  2. Move SpotifyNowPlayingAgent to /usr/local/bin/
  3. Open Terminal.app
  4. Enter the following commands: defaults write com.Growl.GrowlHelperApp GrowlLoggingEnabled -int 1 sudo killall GrowlHelperApp open ~/Library/PreferencePanes/Growl.prefPane/Contents/Resources/GrowlHelperApp.app chmod +x /usr/local/bin/SpotifyNowPlayingAgent launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.spotify.NowPlayingAgent.plist
