librespot-java, the Spotify open source client library

This is the Java port of the Rust version of the project. The main infrastructure is pretty much done, but there's still a lot of work to do. Having a GUI wouldn't be bad, for example.
Tech Stack
Java, basic knowledge of Rust to understand the original code

    UI: do you mean a CLI, or an actual GUI?

    @ScriptCoded both, but I can do the CLI on my own.

    @Gianlu So that'd be it's own repo? Apart from the library?

    @ScriptCoded I guess you could have a separate project depending on the main one, but a module would be fine.

    @Gianlu I was simply thinking that making the footprint bigger than necessary would be, well, unnecessary :p

    But what are you thinking for a UI? Like the Spotify one? Complete ripoff to show how well it works?

    @ScriptCoded I think that redoing it would be nice (not an UI developer, I don't even know where to start). I am more interested in the CLI, it'd like it to be something that only a geek would use.

    Side note: when I started porting librespot my idea was to create a big media center that could stream from pretty much any source and you could have playlists made up by songs coming from various services. That's my dream.

    @Gianlu That actually sounds pretty nice

    @angelbirth no, everything has been build by disassembling their clients. Take a look at https://github.com/librespot-org/...
