All right folks, I've read all the documentation I can find on spotipy's authentication methods, and I put together a little piece of code to test it out, but I can't get it to work. Basically what happens is I run the application, it gives me a link to log in, I click the link, then the application asks me to paste the redirect URI and press enter. I do that, and nothing happens. I'm really not sure where to go from here, so I could use some help figuring it out!
Here's my test code (obviously I use my own ID, Secret, Username, and URI normally):
import spotipy import spotipy.util as util SPOTIPY_CLIENT_ID='myid' SPOTIPY_CLIENT_SECRET='mysecret' username = 'myusername' scope = 'playlist-modify-private' token = util.prompt_for_user_token(username, scope, client_id=SPOTIPY_CLIENT_ID, client_secret=SPOTIPY_CLIENT_SECRET, redirect_uri='http://www.google.com') if token: print('success') else: print('fail!')
Basically, my code doesn't seem to get to the "if token" section, and I'm not sure why. I actually wouldn't mind finding a way I could authenticate that doesn't involve user interaction, as my application is basically an automated process. Also I have no use for the redirect URI, but I did put a random website into my Spotify application, so it's at least "valid" in that sense. (If I can not use the URI somehow that would also be great!)
Thanks in advance!</div
