Spotify in the terminal.
pip install spotui
Please Note: SpoTUI will not work with free Spotify accounts.
Register a developer application at: https://developer.spotify.com/dashboard/login. Once you create the application you'll need to edit it to add a Redirect URI. Use something like 'http://localhost:8888/callback' (it doesn't matter what you use really as long as it matches what's in your config file).
spotui to generate a sample config file at ~/.config/spotui/.spotuirc or create one manually with the following:
[spotify_api] user_name = *Your spotify username* client_id = *Your application client ID* client_secret = *Your application secret* redirect_uri = http://localhost:8888/callback [other] use_nerd_fonts = yes config_version = 1
Once you're done start the app with
spotui, log in via your browser and copy the URL of the broken web page you're taken to. (This ugly authentication process is part of the underlying Spotipy library I use so don't blame me

d to pick the device to play on).
