Very nice work @patrickkfkan,
I did a throw at it once, but was stuck on the authentication part, as I didn’t want to share my API key. For all the right reasons, reading your readme I seem to be able to authenticate, but requesting e.g. /me doesn’t work anymore. At least… not like it did before (saved everything in Postman).
Volumio uses a delegate for authentication. That means that particular delegate is the only component in need of API keys and secrets. Maybe Volumio already grabbed an API key before the lockdown (pun intended ).
I believe there’s some advantage to gain in logging in; e.g. own playlists and maybe some statistics (just thinking out loud here). I was unable to get search working from the API documentation at the time, but I see they’ve revamped the API docs (now OpenAPI).
Am I correct in understanding that this implementation uses scraping to gather data? I so, then you’ve done one hell of a job (and it probably took ages). Well done sir!
Also the plugin itself looks neatly coded, I’m liking the view more (pagination) option and entity ‘homepage’. All in all you did an awesome job. It integrates perfectly, you’ve done your homework on using the available framework options.
