Spotify Playlists with Single Quotes in Name Can't Be Found #486

If a playlist has a ' character, e.g. tohuw's playlist, then it seems there's no way to correctly call it from tizonia.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a playlist in Spotify named "tohuw's playlist"
  2. Attempt tizonia --spotify-playlist "tohuw\'s playlist"
  3. Attempt more variants such as "tohuw's playlist"

Expected behavior: The named playlist is played

Actual behaviour: Finding the playlist fails and the "feeling lucky" sequence starts, or it hangs a long time after the "n playlists found" message and starts outputting the name and track count of each playlist if step 3 above is attempted

Reproduces how often: 100% reproducible


Use the information obtained from tizonia --version and tizonia --debug. Also, please include the OS details and what version you are running
(e.g. cat /etc/os-release).

v0.14.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Installation Method Used

Snap package

Hi!, thanks for taking the time to report this issue.

I believe this is now fixed in 05d734b (develop branch). This commit adds approximate string matching, which was long overdue in the Spotify plugin! Might even fix most of #471.

I will be cutting a new release in 2, maybe 3 weeks.
