My Question or Issue

Hello, I'm currently making an app on Desktop (no backend) with React where a user can see their top songs and artists. I'm using the Implicit Grant Flow Authorization model it's not working. I currently have a button that would redirect the user to the Spotify Account page where it would ask them to give my app permission to look at their data but I'm getting: 

Access to XMLHttpRequest at 'https://accounts.spotify.com/authorize?client_id=undefined&redirect_uri=http://localhost:3000/callba...' from origin 'http://localhost:3000' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.

I looked online for solutions but none seem to work. I tried the anchor tag trick where you make the href the URL but I'm greeted with an invalid client error. The Cors trick would not work because I'm not using a backend. Any help would be greatly appreciated, attached is a picture with my current code (They don't allow other files). Thank you!

Have you tried setting the "Access-Control-Allow-Origin" header that the error message mentions?

Hi Peter, 

Thanks for responding. I actually solved the issue I was having. It turns out my client ID was undefined. I needed to add REACT_APP in front of my credentials in my dot env file and it worked with the anchor tags around the button component. Thanks for the reply once again. 

Cheers, 
Slaeh
