Documentation

Features

  • Components for most of Spotify's data types that pass data through render props
  • Hooks for most of Spotify's data

Roadmap

  • Pass Spotify data with render props
  • Use React.Context to pass the access token down the component tree
  • Hooks!
  • A demo page that uses this library - available here!
  • TypeScript support!
  • 100% code coverage
  • Hooks for all data types from Spotify's API
  • Hooks for using the Spotify Playback SDK

Installing

with npm

npm install --save react-spotify-api

with yarn

yarn add react-spotify-api

Wrapping your app with a Provider

in order to use the Spotify API you are required to send an access token (read more here) with every single http request, but the SpotifyApiContext provider does that for you!

Import

import { SpotifyApiContext } from 'react-spotify-api';

Wrap your app with it (all react-spotify-api components must have a SpotifyApiContext.Provider parent)

<SpotifyApiContext.Provider value={token}>
  <App />
</SpotifyApiContext.Provider>

You can now use all components without worrying about getting your access token!

Component usage

import React, { Component } from 'react';

import { SpotifyApiContext, Artist } from 'react-spotify-api';

function Example(props) {
  return (
    <SpotifyApiContext.Provider value={props.token}>
      <Artist id={props.id}>
        {(artist, loading, error) =>
          artist ? (
            <div>
              <h1>{artist.name}</h1>
              <ul>
                {artist.genres.map(genre => (
                  <li key={genre}>{genre}</li>
                ))}
              </ul>
            </div>
          ) : null
        }
      </Artist>
    </SpotifyApiContext.Provider>
  );
}

Hooks usage (assuming the ExampleHooks component is wrapped with the SpotifyApiContext.Provider)

import React from 'react';

import { useArtist } from 'react-spotify-api';

function ExampleHooks(props) {
  const { data, loading, error } = useArtist(props.id);

  return artist ? (
    <div>
      <h1>{artist.name}</h1>
      <ul>
        {artist.genres.map(genre => (
          <li key={genre}>{genre}</li>
        ))}
      </ul>
    </div>
  ) : null;
}

Data types

  • data - Each component has a link to the Spotify API endpoint where you can see the data model for that specific data type
  • loading - Boolean (true when loading and false when finished loading)
  • error - null when there are no errors but an object when there are - usually containing the error object received by the fetch api, so it looks something like: {status: 404, message: "Not Found"}
