πŸš€ Installation

DASO is easy to install with its dedicated installer for Windows. Follow these steps:

  1. Choose Your Installer:

    • daso_installer_python.bat: If you don't have Python. Install Python here in case it doesn't work.
  2. Run the Installer: Double-click the chosen .bat file in the main folder. Follow the instructions.
  3. Installation Complete: DASO is now ready to use!

πŸ“ Note: Currently, DASO is not available for Linux or Mac. There are no plans for these platforms at the moment.

🎡 Usage

The DASO installer makes it so that you can run it from anywhere in your terminal. Basically, it adds a new command to your terminal, daso, which you can use to run like this:

daso [song name]

For example:

daso never gonna give you up

DASO uses the YouTube API to search for the song you want to listen to, so you can use any name you want, as long as it exists on YouTube. Remember tho, to provide a name, else you will get an error.

🎹 Keybinds

DASO has some keybinds that you can use to control it while it's running. Here's a list of them:

  • space to pause/play the song
  • ctrl + c to stop the song and exit DASO
  • arrow up to increase the volume
  • arrow down to decrease the volume

❗ Important

The neat thing about DASO is that it doesn't download the song you want to listen to, it just streams it from YouTube. Another important note is that you can't listen to Lives for now, I'm currently figuring out how to implement this feature. If you know how to, please feel free to contribute!
