I’ve been playing with Spotify lately. After two weeks, I still prefer Rdio, but that’s a topic for another post. This post concerns using AppleScript and Keyboard Maestro to toggle between pause and play in Spotify.
This may be overly complicated, but it works for me. Via Google, I found christineyen’s Github here:
tell application "System Events" set MyList to (name of every process) end tell if (MyList contains "Spotify") is true then tell application "Spotify" to playpause end if
This assigns option-P (⌥-P) to pause Spotify if it’s playing or play Spotify if it’s paused. I’ve been using it for a week now, and it’s working great.
There may be easier ways to accomplish this, but this solution works for me, and that’s good enough.
