To use the new Spotify SDK we are required to run our own Token Exchange Service. This repository provides you with an easy installation on Heroku. The current
CLIENT_CALLBACK_URL are straight from Spotifys Repo and work with their example apps.
Unless you are expecting massive traffic, the free plan will work for you. Be patient, it can take up to 60 min until you get the confirmation Mail from Heroku.
git clone https://github.com/simontaen/SpotifyTokenSwap.git cd SpotifyTokenSwap
From here on forward it's basically following the Getting Started Guide.
heroku create --http-git git push heroku master heroku ps:scale web=1
heroku logs --tail
and you should get a
<h1>Not Found</h1> back. Also check the logs should show something like
app[web.1]: ip-10-147-165-35.ec2.internal - - [<timestamp>] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 404 18 app[web.1]: - -> / app[web.1]: <your-ip> - - [<timestamp>] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 404 18 0.0005 heroku[router]: at=info method=GET path="/" host=peaceful-sierra-1249.herokuapp.com <...>
Or run the Spotify examples with a corrected
As mentioned above the current code is configured to what Spotify provided us. So you need to syncronize the
CLIENT_CALLBACK_URL between your Spotify Account, your iOS App and the

I personally will host an instance on Heroku for public use as it is very annoying to go through setting everything up when you just want to try something with the SDK. I'll keep it on the free plan and won't pay much attention to it. We'll see how it goes but if the service it getting slammed it'll crash, so be polite.
