My Question or Issue
I am using the spotify web API, accessing it through the python library spotipy. I'm able to use the search function to search for albums, tracks, etc as described here:
However when I set the 'type' parameter to 'show' as described, it doesn't return any results. Has anyone else had this issue or know why it is happening?
cid = '*****'
secret = '*****'
client_credentials_manager = SpotifyClientCredentials(client_id=cid, client_secret=secret)
sp = spotipy.Spotify(client_credentials_manager=client_credentials_manager)
test = sp.search("test", limit=10, type='show')
results = sp._get('https://api.spotify.com/v1/search?q=test&type=show')
if __name__ == "__main__":
these both return empty datasets, while I get data when changing to 'track'.
