Echo Nest Radio

This is a demo app that shows how to use The Echo Nest API with the Spotify API to generate Echo Nest playlists for the currently playing song.

Screen shot

Getting started

  1. Sign up for a developer account on Spotify by logging in and agreeing to the [terms of use] (https://developer.spotify.com/technologies/apps/terms-of-use/).
  2. Sign up for a developer account at The Echo Nest
  3. Create the Spotify folder if it doesn't exist already: ~/Spotify (Mac OS X and Linux) or My Documents\Spotify (Windows).
  4. Open the Spotify folder.
  5. Run git clone http://github.com/plamere/spotify-echo-nest-radio.git echo-nest-radio.
  6. Download the desktop client of Spotify.
  7. Open the desktop client and type spotify:app:echo-nest-radio in the Search box.
  8. If the app doesn't load, restart Spotify completely and type again spotify:app:echo-nest-radio in the Search box.
  9. Play a song in spotify. Click on the Generate Playlist button to generate a playlist

The app uses requires the use of an Echo Nest API key. A demo key with a very low rate limit is included in the demo. You should switch this to your own API key. Look for the line with the // CHANGE ME comment in js/enr.js and change the api_key there to your own api key.
