I actually would program or design or write with Spotify playing in the background, the rhythm helps me focus. The problem would be that I'm singing along and suddenly there's a verse I don't catch that totally throws me off until I google the lyrics. Interestingly, that's what prompted me to make my first open-source library last year, I made it for myself but now it's got ~41k downloads so I think others might go something similar too.

📃 Get lyrics of currently playing Spotify song so you don't sing along with the wrong ones and embarrass yourself later.

Fetches the currently playing song from Spotify on Windows, Linux and macOS and displays the lyrics in the command-line or in a browser tab Refreshes automatically when song changes. The lyrics are fetched from Genius Turns out Deezer already has this feature in-built but with swaglyrics, you can have it in Spotify as well.

I'm mainly trying to build this project as far as I can, for practice and to learn and work with more technologies and platforms.

Initially developed this for personal use. Pretty much functionality oriented -- I usually develop something that I can see helping me and other users in the same situation. Packaged so I can first hand handle production-ready code to an extent and to make distribution and usage easier.


Requires Python3. Use pip or pip3 depending on your installation. You might want to use the --user flag on Linux to avoid…


Thanks! I've spent more time working on it now than I actually use it 😂
