    @Sean Hi Sean, from your descriptions I assume you have spent some quality time with the Spotify API. Is there a way to get user-related statistics (e.g. most often heard songs in recent time, new albums by favorite artists…) on the mirror? Have you tried out anything of that?

  • Module Developer

    Maybe possible.
    I didn’t implement these apis yet. But not too difficult.
    But… I have no idea how to use them for MM modules.
    Maybe you can implement it by yourself. I made a class to wrap APIs so I think ppl can easily expand.

  • Module Developer

    @Sean Well that’s fantastic. On my way…

    What I see now as most interesting to me is a revolving Top 10 of songs for short_term, medium_term, and long_term.

  • @Sean I’ve switched Spotify account so I went to the MMM-Spotify folder, deleted the old token, update Client ID and Secret ID into spotify.config.json and created again (succesfully) the new token.

    The problem is that now the module doesn’t come up when I want to play music from the smart mirror, BUT I still can hear the music (because of Raspotify I suppose).

    Can you think about anything I am missing perhaps? 🤔

    PS: did you remove by chance your Telegram account? I am sending you private chat messages from time to time, but they never get a reply or show to be seen…

    @Cr4z33 Show me the log. Usually I’m not in front of PC on weekends. 😃

  • @Sean oh OK. 😁

    I ran npm start, but unfortunately no error came up.

    Same thing for PM2 logs.

    At the end I tried to delete and reinstall MMM-Spotify, but the issue is still happening.

    By the way this is my current config entry:

    			module: "MMM-Spotify",
    			position: "top_left",
    			disabled: false,
    			config: {
    				onStart: null, // disable onStart feature with `null`
    				// allowDevices: ["Cr4z33 Mirror"],
    				control: "hidden", //"default", "hidden" available

  • Module Developer

    Try it without any config (default setup).
    And nothing in log? Not only Error but also normal log can help to examine.
    At least these(or similar) logs should be shown.

  • @Sean OK here is the console log output of default config with above module entry.
    Please note that I also launched Spotify playing (after launching MM).
