This replaces cutespotify. Sorry for the inconveniences this renaming might have brought you.

Attention:

The Application has been renamed, thus you will lose all your offline music, and have to reload everything.

It is recommended that you uninstall the old application and delete the following directory: "/home/nemo/.local/share/harbour-cutespotify" to free the previously used space

 

CuteSpot makes it possible to listen to your Spotify songs on Sailfish. It supports both online and offline playback.

A Spotify Premium subscription is required to make use of this application

A huge thanks to the initial developers and to Elleo who ported this app to Sailfish initially.

Please be aware that this version only works with Sailfish version >= 1.0.8.*

(If you are on Sailfish version <=1.0.7.* use Elleo's version: https://openrepos.net/content/Elleo/cutespotify )

 

Find the sources here: https://github.com/lukedirtwalker/cutespotify

I'm happy about donations find the link in the about section of the app.

 

Note about versioning:

Starting from 1.5.2-*: Release 0 is always the harbour version, Release > 0 is always non-harbour compliant version. The harbour version is a limited version with all *.harbour.patch patches applied. This is due to API limitations in harbour.

Are there any plans for an updated version? Syncing is getting worst from time to time :(

Add to playlist -> New Playlist would be better as the top option rather than the bottom, so you don't have to scroll past all playlists.

Any chance of an update? mopidy runs perfect using the spotify api on my raspberry pi!

I'm on Jolla C and this version works visually but won't produce audio to headphones nor internal speaker ln Sailfish versions 2.1.0.9-2.1.0.11. Jolla store version works.

miqu's picture

Same here on Jolla 1 with 2.1.0.11. Music seems to play but no sound comes out.

Hi vige, please see the progress here: https://github.com/lukedirtwalker/cutespotify/issues/37

vige's picture

So the current situation with Jolla 1: openrepos versio does not work (always stops at 0:01). Store version works, but does not have bluetooth controls. Is there going to be a fix for this?

kaari's picture

Don't work on EA 2.1.0.9. Starts, but wont play music. Also volume rocker controls system sounds. I tried cutespotify, which showed to play songs, but without sound. Volume rocker also controls music.

lukedirtwalker's picture

Hi @kaari, Can you explain what device you are using and how you try to listen to the music (headphones, loudspeaker, bluetooth speaker) ? On my Jolla C using the in-built loudspeaker works fine.

Can you try if the version from the Jolla Store works better?

 

Cheers

I have the same issue, using Jolla 1 and the openrepos version. The song plays, but no output is produced. If I have a headset attached or if using bluetooth output the volume rocker only changes ringtone volume instead of media volume, even when cutespot is at the top and a track is playing. Switching to the harbour version works, but then the controls on my bluetooth headset doesn't. Switching back to the openrepos version again still produces no output.

Also see comment on t.m.o

Hi, installed Jolla Store version, and it's working. Using Jolla1. Thank you so much!

tth123's picture

Same for me. Great software! Controls work with my Pebble and in my car! :)

EDIT: Correction: The controls of my car radio do not work. Pebble does. Perhaps this is related to the update of bluez in Jolla?

Hi! Seems that cutespot (or libspotify) seems to have stopped working correctly. Starting some weeks ago my playlists were no longer synced. Initial sync of playlists work but no playlist modifications will sync to spotify or vice versa.

No response to a spotify forum post so far: https://community.spotify.com/t5/Other-Partners-Windows-Phone-etc/Playli...

Is anybody else having this problem?

After logging out, clearing the cache and logging in again syncing seems to be working. But "Discover Weekly" still doesn't work.

Beethoven's picture

Same, I get a 'loading' text for the Discover weekly playlist that never updates. 

Still a lot nicer to use than the Android Spotify app though :)

pseudoscion's picture

Yeah, same problem here. Tried removing Spotify's "Discover weekly" playlist, in order to re add it. But it doesn't show up in a search. When using the windows app it still appears that I am subscribed to it.

As you say, it looks like the syncing has gone wrong somewhere. I expect that the spotify API has changed in some way.

Looking good here!

Any chance for a tablet build?

Cheers!

lukedirtwalker's picture

hi mjtorn, there is one in the jolla store

 

cheers,

tvicol's picture

Could you please add support for free account.

forgrimm's picture

Awesome app - Please make an option to save the offline music to sdcard. Would make me smile and would get you some cool thank you and thus make you smile too ;-)

JoneK's picture

Yeah i would like to be able to save on sdcard 2

Mystery47's picture

Nothing much to say this fabulous app, but this app can't handle internet connection changes. Like WiFi/GSM internet connections. Problem is only solved by restarted app again.

And one other thing is that app can't find all available songs wich is possible to find with computer app. Make think is this kind of restricted app to measuring to orginal android etc. app.

LordDorian's picture

Hi, is it possible to move The data to the SD card? Thanks

gloryglorycode's picture

Hi,

First of all, thanks for the devout work at this app, better than the original :)

However, I hope you could add a play queue. This is the only feature I really miss right now. Many thanks for considering!

lukedirtwalker's picture

Nice to hear that you like it.

Playqueue is definitely planned and I even have some working code, however it is not yet complete.

Once I have time I will finish it.

Exec's picture

Thank You so much ! 
Kudos for this app!

Hi,
how about Spotify Connect support? Is it even possible? And second; I use Cutespot with my car stereo via bluetooth. Controlling from car stereo now works, thanks. How about showing artist name, song etc information on car stereo?
Thanks :)

lukedirtwalker's picture

There is no Spotify Connect API so far so not really possible without a huge amount of time to reverse engineer the protocol and money to buy a device which supports it -> so no it is currently not possible (for me at least).

 

Bluetooth stuff has been requested before I have no idea how to do this. But if I have time I might be able to check how jolla does this in their player if that bit is open...

Exec's picture

AFAIK jolla player does not support newer wersions of A2DP protocol features, but the bluez (low level stuff) is already supporting it, so it is technically possible on jolla phone :)

lukedirtwalker's picture

OFC it is possible. But I don't know how exactly, so if you know it please tell me, or implement it.

For me this feature is not interesting as I don't have any BT player, so I also cannot test it.
