Beatstream Code Climate Build Status

IMPORTANT: I have been experimenting with some re-writes and I'm now slowly porting these changes from my dev branch into master. Stay tuned!


Beatstream is an app for streaming music from your computer to anywhere with a modern Web browser! (Beatstream currently requires Ruby to be installed on your computer)

Installation

$ git clone --recursive git://github.com/Darep/Beatstream.git
$ cd Beatstream
$ bundle
$ rake db:migrate
$ cp config/initializers/music_paths.rb.sample config/initializers/music_paths.rb
$ nano config/initializers/music_paths.rb
-> Change 'music_path'
$ rails console
-> User.create(:username => 'you', :email => 'you@where.ever', :password => 'secret', :password_confirmation => 'secret')
-> exit
$ rails server -d

Open Chrome and surf to http://0.0.0.0:3000 address. Log in and wait when indexing ends, refresh page and happy listening!

Known issues

HTTPS/SSL: When running in production environment, the app forces SSL on. To disable this, change config.force_ssl in config/environments/production.rb to false and it shouldn't redirect to https.

Last.fm: You need to manually go to https://localhost:3000/settings and do the authentication there.

Media Library: Opens a blank page after refresh is done. Just go back, and start listening :)

Flash/Firefox crash: Beatstream's Flash plugin (SoundManager2) crashes sometimes. Restart browser / Flash.

UTF-8 problems: Sometimes song info looks garbled. Sometimes Beastream can't play songs with funny characters in filenames or paths.

Endlessly spinning loader: You probably have a Flash block of some kind. Allow Beatstream to use Flash.
