Info

Welcome to the generated API reference. Get Postman Collection

This is the official API documentation for Koel, generated from the source code using Laravel API Documentation Generator. If you spot any mistake or want to add an improvement, please submit an issue or open a pull request.

1. Authentication

Log a user in

Koel uses JSON Web Tokens (JWT) for authentication. After the user has been authenticated, a random "token" will be returned. This token should then be saved in a local storage and used as an Authorization: Bearer header for consecutive calls.

Notice: The token is valid for a week, after that the user will need to log in again.

Example request:

curl -X POST "http://koel.test/api/me"     -d "email"="[email protected]" \
    -d "password"="SoSecureMuchW0w" 
const url = new URL("http://koel.test/api/me");

let headers = {
    "Accept": "application/json",
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
}

let body = JSON.stringify({
    "email": "[email protected]",
    "password": "SoSecureMuchW0w",
})

fetch(url, {
    method: "POST",
    headers: headers,
    body: body
})
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(json => console.log(json));

Example response (200):

{
    "token": "<a-random-string>"
}

HTTP Request

POST api/me

Body Parameters

Parameter Type Status Description
email string required The user's email.
password string required The password.

Log the current user out

Example request:

curl -X DELETE "http://koel.test/api/me" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {token}"
const url = new URL("http://koel.test/api/me");

let headers = {
    "Authorization": "Bearer {token}",
    "Accept": "application/json",
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
}

fetch(url, {
    method: "DELETE",
    headers: headers,
})
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(json => console.log(json));

HTTP Request

DELETE api/me

2. Application data

Get application data

The big fat call to retrieve a set of application data catered for the current user (songs, albums, artists, playlists, interactions, and if the user is an admin, settings as well). Naturally, this call should be made right after the user has been logged in, when you need to populate the application's interface with useful information.

Example request:

curl -X GET -G "http://koel.test/api/data" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {token}"
const url = new URL("http://koel.test/api/data");

let headers = {
    "Authorization": "Bearer {token}",
    "Accept": "application/json",
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
}

fetch(url, {
    method: "GET",
    headers: headers,
})
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(json => console.log(json));

HTTP Request

GET api/data

3. Song interactions

Play a song

The GET request to play/stream a song. By default Koel will serve the file as-is, unless it's a FLAC. If the value of transcode is truthy, Koel will attempt to transcode the file into bitRatekbps using ffmpeg.

Example request:

curl -X GET -G "http://koel.test/api/{song}/play/{transcode?}/{bitrate?}" 
const url = new URL("http://koel.test/api/{song}/play/{transcode?}/{bitrate?}");

    let params = {
            "jwt-token": "IHcH5I1rWR40Sqg2",
        };
    Object.keys(params).forEach(key => url.searchParams.append(key, params[key]));

let headers = {
    "Accept": "application/json",
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
}

fetch(url, {
    method: "GET",
    headers: headers,
})
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(json => console.log(json));

Example response (200):

[]

Connect to Last.fm

Connect the current user to Last.fm. This is actually NOT an API request. The application should instead redirect the current user to this route, which will send them to Last.fm for authentication.

Example request:

curl -X GET -G "http://koel.test/api/lastfm/connect" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {token}"
const url = new URL("http://koel.test/api/lastfm/connect");

    let params = {
            "jwt-token": "AgOg6hUdoPnDBWHi",
        };
    Object.keys(params).forEach(key => url.searchParams.append(key, params[key]));

let headers = {
    "Authorization": "Bearer {token}",
    "Accept": "application/json",
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
}

fetch(url, {
    method: "GET",
    headers: headers,
})
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then(json => console.log(json));
