Get artwork through mopidy.js interface


i’ve developed a neat interface for a 7" raspberry pi tft. But there is one thing i can’t figure out how to do. I would like to get the artwork of the current playing song.

I’m using the javascript mopidy.js library to communicate with the mopidy player. Any pointers on how to get the artwork?

I’ve found some documentation about images in the json structure, but i don’t seem to find it.

Thanks in advance for the reply.



Be aware that not all Mopidy backends will provide images, though. For example, the file and local backends don’t. To extract and serve images from local files, you can use the mopidy-local-images extension. Alternatively, you can use external Web services such as or to retrieve artwork in your client.
