You pass it Spotify URIs (e.g. spotify:album:3HJ4C0poaEMEg8u56sfr02). It gives you back Spotify entities. You do not have to figure out what endpoint to call.

Documentation

spotify-resolve

You pass it Spotify URIs (e.g. spotify:album:3HJ4C0poaEMEg8u56sfr02). It gives you back Spotify entities. It figures out what endpoint to call to call it, so you don't have to.

It will also batch resource ids of a given type together so as to make as few requests as possible, while also respecting resource limits per API request.

Installation

npm install spotify-resolve

Usage

spotify-resolve exports a constructor that creates a function you can use to resolve URIs:

var request = require('request');
var spResolve = require('spotify-resolve')({
  request: request
});
spResolve('spotify:album:3HJ4C0poaEMEg8u56sfr02', logResult);

function logResult(error, result) {
  if (error) {
    console.log(error);
  }
  else {
    console.log(JSON.stringify(result, null, '  '));
  }
}

This will print out a Spotify album object.

To get many URIs resolved:

spResolve(
  [
    'spotify:track:6TiCkACNmrC80bCJ3K2a4U',
    'spotify:track:3lOHeRgeA3oCyxxHl6sVsa',
    'spotify:track:41uWkGOCpz0CA5vJ1nIKI6',
    'spotify:album:3HJ4C0poaEMEg8u56sfr02'
  ],
  logResult
);

This will print out an array of three Spotify track objects and one Spotify album object.

You can also pass a bearerToken opt to the constructor to have it use an access token in API calls.

async/await

If you'd like to use it with async/await, grab errorback-promise and use it to call spResolve like so:

var ep = require('errorback-promise');

var r = await ep(spResolve, [ 'spotify:track:6TiCkACNmrC80bCJ3K2a4U', 'spotify:track:3lOHeRgeA3oCyxxHl6sVsa']);
if (r.error) {
  console.log(error);
} else {
  // Use resolved objects in r.values.
}

Plug in your own request library

By default, it uses request to make http calls. If you want to specify a different http request function to handle that, you can by passing it to the constructor. Like request, your function needs to:

- Take an opt object that has `url` and `method` properties.
- Take a callback that will be passed an error, a response object (can be null), and a parsed JSON body.

Example:

var http = require('http');

var SpotifyResolve = require('spotify-resolve');
var spResolve = SpotifyResolve({
  request: myRequestFunction
});

spResolve(
  [
    'spotify:track:6TiCkACNmrC80bCJ3K2a4U',
    'spotify:track:3lOHeRgeA3oCyxxHl6sVsa',
    'spotify:track:41uWkGOCpz0CA5vJ1nIKI6',
    'spotify:album:3HJ4C0poaEMEg8u56sfr02'
  ],
  logResult
);

function myRequestFunction(opts, callback) {
  var responseString = '';

  var httpOpts = url.parse(opts.url);
  httpOpts.method = opts.method;

  var req = https.request(httpOpts, handleResponseEvents);
  req.on('error', respondToError);
  req.end();

  function handleResponseEvents(res) {
    res.setEncoding('utf8');
    res.on('data', function receiveChunk(chunk) {
      responseString += chunk;
    });
    res.on('end', function endData() {
      callback(null, res, JSON.parse(responseString));
    });
  }

  function respondToError(error) {
    callback(error);
  }
}

Tests

Run tests with make test.

To run the client credentials tests, create a config.js file in tests/ with these contents:

module.exports = {
  clientId: '<Your Spotify API client id>',
  clientSecret: '<Your Spotify API client secret>'
};

Then, run node tests/bearer-token-tests.js.
