#hack.se proudly presents an open source Spotify client
Quite a few Spotify related sites have appeared since we launched in October, I've previously mentioned a number of them which are dedicated to sharing playlists but there are lots of other sites that talk about Spotify or have used Spotify in interesting ways.
We love stuff like this so if you've done something creative with Spotify please let us know, we'd like to see it and share it with everyone.
The latest version of the source code is available in our Subversion repository
Feel free to browse the source code
You'll need OpenSSL, zlib, libvorbis and one of the packages to support the audio backends. Under Linux you can choose between pulseaudio, gstreamer and libao.
Installation command for dependencies under Debian/Ubuntu aptitude install libssl-dev zlib1g-dev libvorbis-dev libtool aptitude install libpulse-dev # For pulseaudio backend aptitude install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0 libgstreamer0.10-dev # For GStreamer backend aptitude install libao-dev # For libao backend
@nevyn is developing Spot, an open source Spotify client for the iPhone/iPod Touch based on despotify.
A Spotify protocol implementation in Java is being developed at http://github.com/fxb/jotify.
Are you a developer without a premium subscription on Spotify?
We've decided to sponsor five people who contact us with details about their project
This will be done by refunding (PayPal only) their first month as a premium subscriber.
Contact us for more information.
Despotify is actively and falsely being accused of hacking into Spotify.
Under Criticism is our statement on the matter.
despotify is about providing an open source client to Spotify's service and providing tools to allow third parties to develop new and cool services that make use of Spotify's platform and services.
Please see our FAQ for more information.
Despotify has been blocked for users using 'Free' accounts.
You can still use Despotify using 'Premium' accounts.
We will not attempt to circumvent this block, nor accept any patches circumventing it. If you disagree with this decision, you are free to fork the code.
