One of the aspects of personal websites that I love is the ability to have a little bit of creative expression and “features” that are just for fun. I’ve noticed a few personal blogs that have a ’now playing’ widget of sorts to showcase what someone is watching or listening to.

This would be simple to do with a Spotify embed widget, but I really don’t want any third-party scripts and widgets on my site. So I created a little now playing web component. This was fun. The code and instructions are published here.
