Getting started

Checking out the repository

As this project uses the git submodule feature to fetch all the needed source files, one would need to have this in mind when performing the checkout.

To checkout everything - including all submodules - the following snippet are handy:

git clone --recurse-submodules -j$(nproc) https://github.com/LydByDissing/stroem.git

Project description and Design Goals

As mentioned above, this project aims at designing a wifi speaker, capable of streaming audio using Bluetooth and Spotify Connect.

The primary design goals of the Strøm speaker are:

  • Minimalistic design language
  • Playback via Spotify Connect and Bluetooth
  • Wall mountable
  • Sustainable materials
  • Open Source

Making it a modern, minimalistic and fully capable speaker. Further requirement details can be found in the requirements document.

Besides making a modern and capable wifi speaker we are also aiming at validating the concept of "local manufactoring" - how we exactly are going to succeed with this are still an unanswered questions; see issue #5 for further discussions on the matter.

Open Next Demonstrator

This project takes part in Open Next 2022 as a demonstrator project - one of twelve to be exact. Most Strøm and Open Next communication will happen over at this page.
