All Contributors

Follow Alexander Keliris (Rigellute)

A Spotify client for the terminal written in Rust.

Demo

The terminal in the demo above is using the Rigel theme.

Installation

The binary executable is

spt
.

Homebrew

For both macOS and Linux

brew install Rigellute/tap/spotify-tui

To update, run

brew upgrade spotify-tui

Snap

For a system with Snap installed, run

snap install spt

The stable version will be installed for you automatically.

If you want to install the nightly build, run

snap install spt --edge

AUR

For those on Arch Linux you can find the package on AUR here. If however you're using an AUR helper you can install directly from that, for example (in the case of yay), run

yay -S spotify-tui

Nix

Available as the package

spotify-tui
. To install run:
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.spotify-tui

Where

nixpkgs
is the channel name in your configuration. For a more up-to-date installation, use the unstable channel. It is also possible to add the package to
environment.systemPackages
(for NixOS), or
home.packages
when using home-manager.

Void Linux

Available on the official repositories. To install, run

sudo xbps-install -Su spotify-tui

Fedora/CentOS

Available on the Copr repositories. To install, run

sudo dnf copr enable atim/spotify-tui -y && sudo dnf install spotify-tui

Cargo

Use this option if your architecture is not supported by the pre-built binaries found on the releases page.

First, install Rust (using the recommended

rustup
installation method) and then
cargo install spotify-tui

This method will build the binary from source.

To update, run

cargo install spotify-tui --force

Note on Linux

For compilation on Linux the development packages for

libssl
are required. For basic installation instructions, see install OpenSSL. In order to locate dependencies, the compilation also requires
pkg-config
to be installed.

If you are using the Windows Subsystem for Linux, you'll need to install additional dependencies.

Windows 10

Scoop installer

First, make sure scoop installer is on your windows box, for instruction please visit scoop.sh

Then open powershell and run following two commands:

scoop bucket add scoop-bucket https://github.com/Rigellute/scoop-bucket
scoop install spotify-tui

After that program is available as:

spt
or
spt.exe

Manual

  1. Download the latest binary for your OS.
  2. cd
    to the file you just downloaded and unzip
  3. cd
    to
    spotify-tui
    and run with
    ./spt

Connecting to Spotify’s API

spotify-tui
needs to connect to Spotify’s API in order to find music by name, play tracks etc.

Instructions on how to set this up will be shown when you first run the app.

But here they are again:

  1. Go to the Spotify dashboard
  2. Click
    Create a Client ID
    and create an app
  3. Now click
    Edit Settings
  4. Add
    http://localhost:8888/callback
    to the Redirect URIs
  5. You are now ready to authenticate with Spotify!
  6. Go back to the terminal
  7. Run
    spt
  8. Enter your
    Client ID
  9. Enter your
    Client Secret
  10. You will be redirected to an official Spotify webpage to ask you for permissions.
  11. After accepting the permissions, you'll be redirected to localhost. If all goes well, the redirect URL will be parsed automatically and now you're done. If the local webserver fails for some reason you'll be redirected to a blank webpage that might say something like "Connection Refused" since no server is running. Regardless, copy the URL and paste into the prompt in the terminal.

And now you are ready to use the

spotify-tui
πŸŽ‰

You can edit the config at anytime at

${HOME}/.config/spotify-tui/client.yml
.

Usage

The binary is named

spt
.

When running

spotify-tui
press
?
to bring up a help menu that shows currently implemented key events and their actions.

Configuration

A configuration file is located at

${HOME}/.config/spotify-tui/config.yml
, for snap
${HOME}/snap/spt/current/.config/spotify-tui/config.yml
(not to be confused with client.yml which handles spotify authentication)

The following is a sample config.yml file:

# Sample config file

The theme colours can be an rgb string of the form "255, 255, 255" or a string that references the colours from your terminal theme: Reset, Black, Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Magenta, Cyan, Gray, DarkGray, LightRed, LightGreen, LightYellow, LightBlue, LightMagenta, LightCyan, White.

theme: active: Cyan # current playing song in list banner: LightCyan # the "spotify-tui" banner on launch error_border: Red # error dialog border error_text: LightRed # error message text (e.g. "Spotify API reported error 404") hint: Yellow # hint text in errors hovered: Magenta # hovered pane border inactive: Gray # borders of inactive panes playbar_background: Black # background of progress bar playbar_progress: LightCyan # filled-in part of the progress bar playbar_text: White # artist name in player pane selected: LightCyan # a) selected pane border, b) hovered item in list, & c) track title in player text: "255, 255, 255" # text in panes

behavior: seek_milliseconds: 5000 volume_increment: 10

The lower the number the higher the "frames per second". You can decrease this number so that the audio visualisation is smoother but this can be expensive!

tick_rate_milliseconds: 250

controls whether to show a loading indicator in the top right of the UI whenever communicating with Spotify API

show_loading_indicator: true

keybindings:

Key stroke can be used if it only uses two keys:

ctrl-q works,

ctrl-alt-q doesn't.

back: "ctrl-q"

jump_to_album: "a"

Shift modifiers use a capital letter (also applies with other modifier keys

like ctrl-A)

jump_to_artist_album: "A"

manage_devices: "d" decrease_volume: "-" increase_volume: "+" toggle_playback: " " seek_backwards: "" next_track: "n" previous_track: "p" copy_song_url: "c" copy_album_url: "C" help: "?" shuffle: "s" repeat: "r" search: "/" audio_analysis: "v"

Limitations

This app uses the Web API from Spotify, which doesn't handle streaming itself. So you'll need either an official Spotify client open or a lighter weight alternative such as spotifyd.

If you want to play tracks, Spotify requires that you have a Premium account.

Using with spotifyd

Follow the spotifyd documentation to get set up.

After that there is not much to it.

  1. Start running the spotifyd daemon.
  2. Start up
    spt
  3. Press
    d
    to go to the device selection menu and the spotifyd "device" should be there - if not check these docs

Libraries used

Development

  1. Install OpenSSL
  2. Install Rust
  3. Install
    xorg-dev
    (required for clipboard support)
  4. Clone or fork this repo and
    cd
    to it
  5. And then
    cargo run

Windows Subsystem for Linux

You might get a linking error. If so, you'll probably need to install additional dependencies required by the clipboard package

sudo apt-get install -y -qq pkg-config libssl-dev libxcb1-dev libxcb-render0-dev libxcb-shape0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev
