Lyricfier: Lyrics for the Desktop Spotify Client
Lyricfier is an electron app that communicates with Spotify Desktop Client to get the current song and then looks for a matching lyric scraping the web.
Go to Lyricfier releases page and download the zip file for your platform.
How it looks
# clone the repo git clone https://github.com/emilioastarita/lyricfier.git # change dir cd lyricfier # take some coffee and download all the internet with npm npm install
How it works
We retrieve the current song of spotify client using the spotify built-in web server that allow us to ask for the current status of the player. The built-in web server could run in a range of ports starting at 4370. Lyricfier will launch multiple connections hoping find the actual port. You can read a more detailed explanation here: Deconstructing Spotify's built-in HTTP server
You can easily write a new scraping plugin. Just look at the folder
render/plugins for some inspiration.
