Demo links broken

Casual Listener

Hello,

 

I'm looking at the demo code in https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/libraries/ and it looks like all of those are broken.

 

I really like the app in: http://everynoise.com/

 

I can use that one without any authentication, that makes me think the authentication is happening in the server-side.

 

Is there any documentation on the request limits?

 

Thanks!

Hi! 

Thanks for the report! 

Could you please be more specific on what is broken? All work for me here.

 

Documentation about rate limiting can be found here: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/#rate-limiting

Hello,

 

I tried the following links a few times, but didn't work:
Basic snippets --> Search for an Artist (and Lookup) Demo
Example apps:
- Playlist Creation
- 30s Drum Machine

 

 

About the Rate limiting, I couldn't find specific numbers.

 

My main concern is if I should grab data & store in a DB (to avoid making the same request many times) or if my app can just make many requests (every time it has an active user, it will make a few requests)

Thanks! I will forward your report to the team responsible for these demos!

 

About the rate limiting question, our specific numbers are not public, but you should be fine by doing a few requests per user, assuming you don't have a ultra huge app.

 

Also, storing our data in third-party data bases is against our ToS: https://developer.spotify.com/terms/
