SpotifyApi

Spotify Web API Wrapper with Retrofit and OkClients just for Android. This library includes authentication and account token management feature.

Set up

Prepare SpotifyApi instance on your Application.

public class App extends Application {
  @Override
  public void onCreate() {
    super.onCreate();
    SpotifyApi.initialize(this, new ClientConfig.Builder()
        .setClientId("clientId")
        .setClientSecret("clientSecret")
        .setRedirectUri("redirectUri")
        .build());
  }
}

SpotifyApi has a responsibility to handle api calls and callback handler for user auth.

Start user authentication

You can authenticate user with this.

public class AuthActivity extends Activity {
  public void onAuthButtonClick(View view) {
    SpotifyApi.getInstance().authorize(this, new String[] {"playlist-read-private", "streaming", "user-library-read"}, false);
  }
}

You should prepare the activity that receives redirect uri callback. The callback redirect handling code is below.

public class AuthActivity extends Activity {
  @Override
  public void onNewIntent(Intent intent) {
    super.onNewIntent(intent);
    SpotifyApi.getInstance().onCallback(intent.getData(), this);
  }
}

Use with Loaders

The library provides abstraction of AsyncTaskLoader so you can easily integrate with generic Android framework.

public class MyselfLoader extends SpotifyLoader<User> {
  public MyselfLoader(Context context, SpotifyApi api) {
    super(context, api);
  }

  @Override
  public User call(SpotifyService service) throws Exception {
    return service.getMe();
  }
}

SpotifyLoader will automatically refresh the token if it is expired.

Retrofit callbacks

This library is based on Retrofit so you can use its callback framework.

public class MyActivity extends Activity {
  public void onStartLoadClick(View view) {
    SpotifyApi.getInstance().getSpotifyApi().getMe(new Callback<User>() {
      @Override
      public void success(User user, Response response) {}

      @Override
      public void failure(RetrofitError error) {}
    });
  }
}

Callback will be executed on the main thread.
