spotify-player – command driven Spotify player

Last Updated on February 21, 2023


spotify-player moves to the top of the list. In our opinion, it’s the finest terminal-based open source Spotify client available. It’s got a great feature set although some people will miss the lack of MPRIS support.

We tested the software on a few computers including the credit-card size Raspberry Pi 4. On all devices it performed admirably.

While spotify-player is not quite as frugal with memory consumption as its terminal-based competitors, this shouldn’t pose an issue.

Surprisingly, spotify-player hasn’t attracted as many GitHub stars as ncspot and others. At the time of writing, it has 141 stars. Never judge a book by its cover, never judge software by its GitHub stars! spotify-player is the cream of the crop of third-party clients.
