Access to 'Jamendo' API

Provides an interface to 'Jamendo' API <https://developer.jamendo.com/v3.0>. Pull audio, features and other information for a given 'Jamendo' user (including yourself!) or enter an artist's -, album's -, or track's name and retrieve the available information in seconds.


Travis-CI Build Status



JamendoR is a R wrapper for pulling track audio features and other information from Jamendo's Web API. You can pull song and playlist information for a given Jamendo User (including yourself!) or enter an artist's -, album's -, or track's name and retrieve the available information in seconds.


Development version



First, set up an account with Jamendo to access their Web API here. This will give you your Client ID and Client Secret. Once you have those, you can pull your access token into R with jamendoOAuth(app_name).

The easiest way to authenticate is to set your credentials to the System Environment variables JAMENDO_CLIENT_ID and JAMENDO_CLIENT_SECRET. The default arguments to jamendoOAuth(app_name) (and all other functions in this package) will refer to those. Alternatively, you can set them manually and make sure to explicitly refer to your access token in each subsequent function call.

Sys.setenv(JAMENDO_CLIENT_ID = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx')
Sys.setenv(JAMENDO_CLIENT_SECRET = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx')

token <- jamendoOAuth(app_name="xxxx")
filedir <- tempdir()
save(token file=file.path(filedir, "token"))

Authorization code flow

For certain functions and applications, you'll need to be logged in. To do this, your Jamendo application needs to have a callback url. You can set this to whatever you want, but a good default option is http://localhost:1410/ (see image below). For more information on authorization, visit the offical Jamendo Developer Guide.
