Build Snapcast

Clone the Snapcast repository. To do this, you need git.
For Debian derivates (e.g. Raspbian, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint):

$ sudo apt-get install git

For Arch derivates:

$ sudo pacman -S git

For FreeBSD:

$ sudo pkg install git

Clone Snapcast:

$ git clone https://github.com/badaix/snapcast.git

this creates a directory snapcast, in the following referred to as <snapcast dir>.
Next clone the external submodules:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/externals
$ git submodule update --init --recursive

Linux (Native)

Install the build tools and required libs:
For Debian derivates (e.g. Raspbian, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint):

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev libvorbisidec-dev libvorbis-dev libflac-dev alsa-utils libavahi-client-dev avahi-daemon

Compilation requires gcc 4.8 or higher, so it's highly recommended to use Debian (Raspbian) Jessie.

For Arch derivates:

$ sudo pacman -S base-devel
$ sudo pacman -S alsa-lib avahi libvorbis flac alsa-utils

Build Snapclient and Snapserver

cd into the Snapcast src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>
$ make

Install Snapclient and/or Snapserver:

$ sudo make installserver
$ sudo make installclient

This will copy the client and/or server binary to /usr/bin and update init.d/systemd to start the client/server as a daemon.

Build Snapclient

cd into the Snapclient src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/client
$ make

Install Snapclient

$ sudo make install

This will copy the client binary to /usr/bin and update init.d/systemd to start the client as a daemon.

Build Snapserver

cd into the Snapserver src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/server
$ make

Install Snapserver

$ sudo make install

This will copy the server binary to /usr/bin and update init.d/systemd to start the server as a daemon.

FreeBSD (Native)

Install the build tools and required libs:

$ sudo pkg install gmake gcc bash avahi libogg libvorbis flac

Build Snapserver

cd into the Snapserver src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/server
$ gmake TARGET=FREEBSD

Install Snapserver

$ sudo gmake TARGET=FREEBSD install

This will copy the server binary to /usr/local/bin and the startup script to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/snapserver. To enable the Snapserver, add this line to /etc/rc.conf:

snapserver_enable="YES"

For additional command line arguments, add in /etc/rc.conf:

snapserver_opts="<your custom options>"

Start and stop the server with sudo service snapserver start and sudo service snapserver stop.

macOS (Native)

Warning: macOS support is experimental

  1. Install Xcode from the App Store
  2. Install Homebrew
  3. Install the required libs
$ brew install flac libvorbis

Build Snapclient

cd into the Snapclient src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/client
$ make TARGET=MACOS

Install Snapclient

$ sudo make install TARGET=MACOS

This will copy the client binary to /usr/local/bin and create a Launch Agent to start the client as a daemon.

Build Snapserver

cd into the Snapserver src-root directory:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/server
$ make TARGET=MACOS

Install Snapserver

$ sudo make install TARGET=MACOS

This will copy the server binary to /usr/local/bin and create a Launch Agent to start the server as a daemon.

Android (Cross compile)

Cross compilation for Android is done with the Android NDK on a Linux host machine.

Android NDK setup

http://developer.android.com/ndk/guides/standalone_toolchain.html

  1. Download NDK: https://dl.google.com/android/repository/android-ndk-r17b-linux-x86_64.zip
  2. Extract to: /SOME/LOCAL/PATH/android-ndk-r17b
  3. Setup toolchains for arm and x86 somewhere in your home dir (<android-ndk dir>):
$ cd /SOME/LOCAL/PATH/android-ndk-r17/build/tools
$ ./make_standalone_toolchain.py --arch arm --api 16 --stl libc++ --install-dir <android-ndk dir>-arm
$ ./make_standalone_toolchain.py --arch x86 --api 16 --stl libc++ --install-dir <android-ndk dir>-x86

Build Snapclient

Cross compile and install FLAC, ogg, and tremor (only needed once):

$ cd <snapcast dir>/externals
$ make NDK_DIR=<android-ndk dir>-arm ARCH=arm
$ make NDK_DIR=<android-ndk dir>-x86 ARCH=x86

Compile the Snapclient:

$ cd <snapcast dir>/client
$ ./build_android_all.sh <android-ndk dir> <snapdroid assets dir>

The binaries for armeabi and x86 will be copied into the Android's assets directory (<snapdroid assets dir>/bin/) and so will be bundled with the Snapcast App.

OpenWrt/LEDE (Cross compile)

Cross compilation for OpenWrt is done with the OpenWrt build system on a Linux host machine:
https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/build

For LEDE: https://lede-project.org/docs/guide-developer/quickstart-build-images

OpenWrt/LEDE build system setup

https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/buildroot.exigence

Clone OpenWrt to some place in your home directory (<buildroot dir>)

$ git clone git://git.openwrt.org/15.05/openwrt.git

...LEDE

$ git clone https://git.lede-project.org/source.git

Download and install available feeds

$ cd <buildroot dir>
$ ./scripts/feeds update -a
$ ./scripts/feeds install -a

Within the <buildroot dir> directory create symbolic links to the Snapcast source directory <snapcast source> and to the OpenWrt Makefile:

$ mkdir -p <buildroot dir>/package/sxx/snapcast
$ cd <buildroot dir>/package/sxx/snapcast
$ ln -s <snapcast source> src
$ ln -s <snapcast source>/openWrt/Makefile.openwrt Makefile

Build
in menuconfig in sxx/snapcast select Compile snapserver and/or Compile snapclient

$ cd <buildroot dir>
$ make defconfig
$ make menuconfig
$ make

Rebuild Snapcast:

$ make package/sxx/snapcast/clean
$ make package/sxx/snapcast/compile

The packaged ipk files are for OpenWrt in <buildroot dir>/bin/ar71xx/packages/base/snap[client|server]_x.x.x_ar71xx.ipk and for LEDE <buildroot dir>/bin/packages/mips_24kc/base/snap[client|server]_x.x.x_mips_24kc.ipk

Buildroot (Cross compile)

This example will show you how to add snapcast to Buildroot.

Buildroot setup

Buildroot recommends keeping customizations outside of the main Buildroot directory which is what this example will walk through.

Clone Buildroot to some place in your home directory (<buildroot dir>):

$ BUILDROOT_VERSION=2016.11.2
$ git clone --branch $BUILDROOT_VERSION --depth=1 git://git.buildroot.net/buildroot

The <snapcast dir>/buildroot is currently setup as an external Buildroot folder following the recommended structure. As of Buildroot 2016.11 you may specify multiple BR2_EXTERNAL trees. If you are using a version of Buildroot prior to this, then you will need to manually merge <snapcast dir>/buildroot with your existing Buildroot external tree.

Now configure buildroot with the required packages (you can also manually add them to your project's existing defconfig):

$ cd <buildroot dir> && make BR2_EXTERNAL=<snapcast dir>/buildroot snapcast_defconfig

Then use menuconfig to configure the rest of your project:

$ cd <buildroot dir> && make BR2_EXTERNAL=<snapcast dir>/buildroot menuconfig

And finally run the build:

$ cd <buildroot dir> && make BR2_EXTERNAL=<snapcast dir>/buildroot

Raspberry Pi (Cross compile)

This example will show you how to add snapcast to Buildroot and compile for Raspberry Pi.
