Spotify on the Xbox One, finally!
So, I waited long enough and decided to write my own HTML5 interface to use on the XboxOne. I haven't yet tested it on the Xbox360, but I'll do that soon and let you all know how it works.
I used concepts from the Pandora HTML5 interface which works great in Internet Explorer on the XboxOne. The application runs a small web server that is written in Node.js. Luckily, TooTallNate already wrote a library that I could utilize called node-spotify-web that handles the communication to/from Spotify.
You can run Spotify-Server yourself if you're familiar at all with Node.js. If you're not, then head on over to their website: http://nodejs.org/ and check it out. Once you've got it installed, go to my Github repository for spotify-server here https://github.com/brandtabbott/spotify-server. All of the install and how to run instructions are over there.
A little background on this project if you're interested:
Runs on: Node.js
Main dependency: node-spotify-web
It took me about a week of working a couple hours a night to put this badboy together and my wife and I use it just about every day now.
