[Desktop] Command-line (Unix Console) Spotify App

This is probably only of interest to 1% of the Spotify users out there, but how about a Spotify command line application?  Sometimes I find myself on a machine where for some reason I can't use a GUI, or don't wish to, but would like some Spotify tunes.

This idea has been posted again here.

I believe that if Spotify is not giving this idea any more thought, they should release an API that allows users to make their own apps that are able to play music.

Hey @doktorzee we don't have any plans for a command line application. We will of course keep an eye on this idea if it starts to make some serious growth. It's still open for votes and comments in case you want to leave us some feedback. Thanks!

It is lot easier to implement some easy command line features than GUI. But, you will make lots of people happy.

You might want to configure a dbus command shortcut if in a X environment or just set a alias.

+1 on this. Still using pianobar (pandora) until an option becomes available here.
