Scraping Spotify Data
Spotify is one of the world’s leading music streaming platforms and offers an official API you can use to access public data from - all for free!
To use the API, simply create a free Spotify account to use with their API and head to the Spotify API dashboard where you can access your client ID and secret. You can then use the Authentication Endpoint to get your
access_token, which you’ll need to access other Spotify API endpoints.
Once you have your Spotify
access_token, you can then browse the Spotify Web API and pick the endpoints relevent to you. You’re free to follow their guidance from here and then write custom code to integrate with their API.
If you just need to collect data back from Spotify and would rather not write custom code, you can use the endpoints on this page to quickly access Spotify data and receive it back in CSV format instantly, without having to maintain any code.
