New users: you may be wondering which package to use for spotifyd. If you're not sure, just use the plain spotifyd package. This installs just the features that upstream has marked as default.

If you need more features, use spotifyd-full. This package includes all optional features (that are applicable to Arch Linux).

Since there are currently 32 possible feature sets, I will be discontinuing the other variants. Both the spotifyd-pulseaudio and spotifyd-dbus-mpris are deprecated in favour of the spotifyd-full package and will be removed with a future release.

bertptrs, that would work great for me as I am also interested in some of the other features.

joelpet, I think that as the number of compile options increases, there will be an exploding set of options to take. Perhaps it is a better idea to scale down a bit on the options. I think the following would be nice:

One package with the default upstream settings, as is common in ArchLinux. This is the current spotifyd package.

Another with all features enabled, save for portaudio I guess since that doesn't make much sense on Linux.

Would something like that work for you?

Thank you for maintaining this package – I find it very useful. However, I would like to use the dbus_keyring feature, which I have verified that it works by tweaking your PKGBUILD locally. Is there any chance you would consider including it, or extending this split package with a new version for it?

lilmike, I made a copy-paste error when I was refactoring the package, removing the exact mechanism that is supposed to support multiple versions. Please try the updated version (0.2.3-3), but also note that there are currently several DBUS-related issues upstream.

Yeah, it seems that each "feature" shares the built directory with each other, so building spotifyd the way it's being done builds them all, but only keeps the last. Not sure how to work around this, but yeah.

I'm not seeming to get the dbus-mpris varient to use that feature. At least I get nothing in the logs about using it, and playerctl -l reports no players.

onlined I added a version to the split that has those flags enabled. However, since those features are experimental (according to upstream) they remain disabled in the default and pulseaudio build. Let me know if this works for you.

Could you add MPRIS supported package?

I have been experimenting with the PKGBUILD. Instead of ignoring openssl, I compiled with an older version of openssl. Also, I need to use openssl-probe to get certificates. This also works with dbus_mpris which requires rust-openssl.
