This topic is to give some visibility to the Spotify Binding, If you search for Spotify Binding you will get all kinds of hits, from python scripts to widgets, and some threads about the binding, but they contain mostly old links. And none that promote this new binding as it is available. This binding was initial developed by @astenlund74 and I continued his work
For anyone wanting (or using) Spotify with openHAB there is a Spotify Binding available. While this binding is not yet part of any release, it’s very easy to install the binding because it’s available in the Eclipse Market Place.
To install the binding, enable the Eclipse Market Place in Configuration system with maturity level beta and than the binding will be available in the list of bindings in PaperUI.
The documentation for this binding can be found here (Once the binding is merged I’ll update the url):
Note: The binding in the Eclipse IoT Market place uses the OAuth2 module of openHAB that has been made available in openHAB version 2.4.0. An older version of the binding is still available, but it won’t be updated with fixes: https://github.com/Hilbrand/openhab2-addons/releases/tag/spotify_old (Only install jar from the link if you run openHAB 2.3.0)
If you have the updated version of the binding from the Eclipse IoT Marketplace that supports the deviceName as id make sure you have the version that shows in the title Spotify Binding (Beta 30/04/2019 21:00) or a later timestamp
I’ll be updating this message when the binding status in openHAB changes.
