Spotify's been one of my favorite services for the longest time. Of late, my frustrations with the app outweigh the possible benefits. I have not abandoned the service; I have simply chosen to use the web version. Bitch, you thought.
As I bid adieu to the app I once loved and had, I figured I'd put down the stuff I'd done to make the Spotify app an integral part of my setup, a spot it no longer occupies. My heart already feels lighter.
I guess I'd thought that a customized Spotify setup, typically done with Spicetify was a requisite part of a rice. The shades of green that I'd picked out, however, truly brought me joy. However, ditching it seems a fair bit simpler. Anyway, I was really proud of my setup, which makes parting with it all the more difficult.
Right, so I liked using the Phosphoria theme, since it was already close to what I was looking for. I've changed a fair bit of the colors in the .config/Themes/Phosphoria/color.ini file. Here's what that file looks like now:
I also liked having the song show up on my bar, and for that, I used polybar-spotify. My config used to contain the lines:
Alas, that too had to go.
I also had a cronjob setup to periodically delete the .cache/Spotify/Data folder, since that was the folder to accumulate literal gigabytes of storage. The corresponding line read:00 18 * * 5 rm -rf ~/.cache/spotify/Data
That's all for now! I'll put down anything else Spotify-related
down here as it comes to me.
Alas, Spotify's one of my guiltiest pleasures; I wound up re-installing it. I'm not as strong as I thought. I'm no longer using Spicetify or the cronjob (mentioned earlier), but I'm still using a Polybar module.
