[LB6 Extension] Spotify Actions

Post by manfred » Mon Aug 04, 2014 5:04 pm

A set of Spotify Actions meant as a replacement for the built-in iTunes actions. Right now the set contains the following actions:
  • Play / Pause
  • Next Song
  • Previous Song
  • Toggle Repeat
  • Toggle Shuffle
  • Share Current Song (on Twitter or Facebook)

Download Actions

If you are a Spotify user make sure to take a look at nosrac's search action as well!

These actions no longer work with the latest version of Spotify. Any chance these will be updated? :D

Unfortunately this seems to be an issue with Spotify. The AppleScript dictionary moved to a different location where OS X can't find it anymore. Right now Spotify is more or less unscriptable.

May i recommend that you try Mopidy (with mopidy-spotify). You can install it with brew, and it only needs a Spotify username/password.

Then you have a CLI client for Spotify and no need to have the resource heavy Spotify GUI app running (and not dependent on Applescript) :)

I control it with an Alfred extension (would love to use a LaunchBar action instead at some point).
