ncspot is an ncurses Spotify client written in Rust using librespot. Inspired by ncurses MPD clients like ncmpc, ncspot aims to provide a simple and resource-friendly alternative to the official Spotify client. It supports platforms that currently lack an official Spotify client, such as the *BSDs.

ncspot requires a Spotify premium account as it offers features not available for free accounts.
