    Option 1: Use CDN from jsDelivr

    No installation is required to use Amplitude.js. All you need to do is include a single line in your <head> section of your HTML page.

    Replace {{version-number}} with the exact version number that you would like to use (see our releases for what version number to use):

    <script src="{{version-number}}/dist/amplitude.js"></script>

    NOTE: It's best to set your version number manually to make sure you have full control of what version you are running. If you need to upgrade in the future, just change {{version-number}} to the latest version.

    Option 2: Automatic install via npm

    Download it via NPM to your existing project:

    npm install --save amplitudejs

    You will see the file under node_modules/amplitudejs/dist/amplitude.js.

    Option 3: Manual download

    Download the amplitude.js file from our releases page and include the file manually with your project.

    After install, you must initialize Amplitude.js

    To initialize Amplitude.js, you must call the Amplitude.init() method and pass in an object that contains an array of songs and settings. Amplitude.js will then take care of configuring and setting up your player by finding all of the Amplitude elements (defined later in the docs) and binding the appropriate event handlers.

    To configure Amplitude.js, you need to call the init function on the Amplitude object and you can pass it a JSON object of configuration variables ( we will go through ALL of these in the documentation ). At the bare minimum, you need to pass it all of the song objects that your page will be using. More information about the song object next.

            "songs": [
                    "name": "Song Name 1",
                    "artist": "Artist Name",
                    "album": "Album Name",
                    "url": "/song/url.mp3",
                    "cover_art_url": "/cover/art/url.jpg"
                    "name": "Song Name 2",
                    "artist": "Artist Name",
                    "album": "Album Name",
                    "url": "/song/url.mp3",
                    "cover_art_url": "/cover/art/url.jpg"
                    "name": "Song Name 3",
                    "artist": "Artist Name",
                    "album": "Album Name",
                    "url": "/song/url.mp3",
                    "cover_art_url": "/cover/art/url.jpg"

    This configuration will set up Amplitude.js to work the way you want it. The config JSON is used heavily to configure and optimize Amplitude.js for what your app needs.
