Accessing Spotify API without Logging In

Accessing Spotify API without Logging In

Hi, for my class I am trying to create an application in which a group of people can collaborate on a playlist and then export that playlist to Spotify.  One of the reasons we thought of this idea is to have it so people without a Spotify account can collaborate on the playlist as well and then those with the account can export the playlist to Spotify to play it.  Currently, I am trying to implement a search bar so that people can add songs that are in Spotify's list of songs to avoid any errors when exporting.  Is there a way that my application can access the collection of songs without making the user login?

Hey @griffin610, thanks for reaching out on the Developers board!

 

It sounds like the Client-Credentials authorization flow might fit in your project. You can read more about setting this up here: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/general/guides/authorization-guide/#client-credentials-f....

 

Beware, you can only use endpoints where user authorization is not required (such as Get a Track).

 

Let me know if you have any questions! 🙂

 

Have a good one,
