Grab the latest version

v0.13.7 | All versions | Source

Installation is gosh-darned simple. Follow these instructions and you’ll be happier than a fourth-grader at recess.

It’s a two-part process, but it shouldn’t take all of 5 minutes.

Download the thingy

  1. Download the latest version of Spotifious, specifically the alfredworkflow file.
  2. Open Spotifious.alfredworkflow by double-clicking it or dragging it into Alfred.
  3. Figure 1 Figure 1: The first thingy marked Hotkey

    Bind the launcher hotkey:

    1. Double-click the first thingy marked Hotkey (see Figure 1).
    2. Click the text field labeled Hotkey and press ^⌘⏎. If your iTunes Mini Player is set to the same hotkey, you will have to unbind/rebind it first (FeaturesiTunes → the thing that has a hotkey in it).
    3. Click Save to store the binding.
  4. Bind the other hotkeys as you wish. Their actions are visible in the Text field, under Argument
  5. You can now install Spotifious!

Install the thingy

  1. Pop up Spotifious with the key command you set— I would have ^⌘⏎
  2. Select Set your country code and choose your country from the list, or select “I’d rather not give a country!”

    (adding a country prevents music you can’t play from showing up in search. I don’t do anything with it)

  3. Select Create a Spotify application. This should open a webpage that will guide you through setup. Read that or follow below:
    1. Open the Spotify application manager, logging in if asked.
    2. Click the shiny Create an app button and enter an awesome application name & description. Or a boring name, it doesn’t matter. .
    3. Add http://localhost:11114/callback.php as a redirect URI.
    4. Save those changes by clicking Save at the bottom of the page.
    5. Enter your Client ID and Client Secret on the guide page.

      This link will not work if you are not in the middle of setup.

    6. Pop open Spotifious again to continue setup!
  4. Link your Spotify application by selecting the so-named option in Spotifious and logging in to Spotify. You’ll see a list of what permissions Spotifious uses.
  5. You’re done! Read the User’s Guide to learn the ins and outs of Spotifious.
