All content from Spotify works with Ghost automatically via our OEmbed integration. All you have to do is paste a URL!
If you’re a Spotify fan and you love sharing tracks and playlists with people then you’ll be pleased to hear that Spotify embeds work seamlessly inside Ghost with extremely minimal effort. Here’s a quick guide to getting all the best music into your posts:
Copy the URL of the track
Grab the URL of the track you’d like to embed into your post or page
Paste it into the Ghost editor
When you paste it into the Ghost editor it’ll be automatically transformed into a rich embed of the track you selected
Publish your post
That’s all there is to it! Ghost interacts with Spotify via their OEmbed API in order to retrieve all the correct settings automatically and serve your track in the best way possible.
