The following video shows an early state of BeakPi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AcSKF8fZjw

The latest video shows the Spotify Player and RF control of lights.

Since this video Pandora has been implemented as well as a basic room temperature output and themes.

These setup instructions cover setting BeakPi up from a fresh OS install.

Currently it is presummed you are pulling this source for either using as a Spotify Player, Pandora Player, a Harmony RF Gateway, or all three.

Requirements for the Spotify Player: Spotify Premium Account - https://www.spotify.com/

Requirements for the Pandora Player: Free or Paid Pandora Account - http://www.pandora.com/

Requirements for the RF Gateway: ZBPLM - https://www.simplehomenet.com/proddetail.asp?prod=ZigBee_INSTEON_X10_Interface

Requirements for the Temperature USB: http://www.dracal.com/store/products/usbtenki/index.php

The eventual aim of BeakPi is not to be tied to set devices and allow for easy modifcation of system command calls. However right now these are the peripherals being used.

====

After installing line 7 to 12 in index.php holds the required config parameters to run BeakPi.

Update first:

sudo apt-get update

Install apache and PHP:

sudo apt-get install php5-common libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cli

You should now be able to go to the IP address of your Pi in a browser and see a "It Works!" message

Pull BeakPi Source:

cd /var/www
sudo git clone https://github.com/beakable/beakpi.git .

Install CouchDB (Optional for Settings & Temperature)

CouchDB is used for the Temperature storage however I've yet to tidy the code and add instructions for this. Just now it's used for setting the theme directly though the app rather than a PHP flag.

sudo apt-get install couchdb

Create a Table called Settings

Add a Field: "theme" with the value: "clear"

So it looks like the following:

_id: 09abf27c06c77ee0d116ed7c1400b697
_rev: 73-5266717cd8db3070edc70c0bfdf41642
theme: clear

Add a view called "all" which does the following:

function(doc) {
  emit(doc._id, doc);
}

UPDATE PROXY to access couchdb without cross domain proxy issues (Need to look at using localhost rather than fixed IP). Change the IP 192.168.1.68 to reflect your fixed IP -- Temporary.

sudo a2enmod proxy

sudo nano /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proxy.conf

ProxyRequests On
ProxyPass /couchdb http://192.168.1.68:5984

sudo service apache2 restart

Pi Settings

sudo usermod -G video www-data
sudo reboot

Pandora

Install pianod:

http://deviousfish.com/pianod/index.html

You will probably need to do the following first

sudo apt-get install libgcrypt11-dev libgnutls-dev libjson0-dev libfaad-dev ksh

Download the latest tar from DeviousFish and install:

http://deviousfish.com/Downloads/pianod/

cd
sudo wget http://deviousfish.com/Downloads/pianod/pianod-latest.tar.gz
tar zxvf pianod-latest.tar.gz
cd pianod-latest
sudo ./configure 
sudp make
sudo make install

Setup pianod

Create the service file:

sudo nano /etc/init.d/pianod

Inside it place:

#! /bin/sh

Reboot your Pi

Spotify

Install MPC:

BeakPi attempts to remain fast and responsive. To keep interactions with Spotify fast it uses a hybrid of Mopidy and MPC. Mopidy offers a far better experience with Spotify control, however MPC has shown to be faster for particular basic commands. To use BeakPi both is required:

sudo apt-get install mpc

Install Mopidy:

http://docs.mopidy.com/en/latest/installation/raspberrypi/

sudo modprobe ipv6
echo ipv6 | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
wget -q -O - http://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list http://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mopidy

Setup Mopidy:

cd
mkdir .config
mkdir .config/mopidy
touch .config/mopidy/mopidy.conf
nano .config/mopidy/mopidy.conf

In the config file:

[mpd]
hostname = ::

[http]
enabled = true
hostname = ::
port = 6680

[spotify]
username = SPOTIFYUSER
password = SPOTIFYPASS

[local]
enabled = false

[scrobbler]
enabled = false

Running mopidy should now work.

Setup Mopidy as A Service:

http://delarre.net/posts/setting-up-a-raspberry-pi-media-center/

sudo adduser --system mopidy
sudo adduser mopidy audio
sudo mkdir /home/mopidy/.config
sudo mkdir /home/mopidy/.config/mopidy
cd
sudo cp .config/mopidy/mopidy.conf /home/mopidy/.config/mopidy/mopidy.conf
sudo nano /etc/init.d/mopidy

Paste in the following (For a description of what you're doing check out Ben Delarres great blog post linked):

#!/bin/bash
# mopidy daemon
# chkconfig: 345 20 80
# description: mopidy daemon
# processname: mopidy
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          mopidy deamon

# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Start mopidy daemon at boot time

### END INIT INFO

case "$1" in
start)
        echo "Starting Mopidy Daemon"
        start-stop-daemon --start --chuid mopidy --background --exec /usr/bin/mopidy \
                --pidfile $PIDFILE --make-pidfile \
                -- 2>/var/log/mopidy.log
;;
stop)
     echo "Stopping Mopidy Daemon"
        start-stop-daemon --stop --exec /usr/bin/mopidy --pidfile $PIDFILE
;;

restart)
        $0 stop
        $0 start
;;

*)
        echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}"
        exit 1
esac

Then:

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/mopidy
sudo update-rc.d mopidy defaults
sudo touch /var/log/mopidy.log
sudo chmod 666 /var/log/mopidy.log
sudo touch /var/run/mopidy.pid
sudo chmod 666 /var/run/mopidy.pid
sudo service mopidy start

Smartenit RF

To Setup Smartenit RF Gateway:

https://www.simplehomenet.com/solutions.asp?page_id=HomAidPi

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add to the end of the file:

deb http://harmonygateway.com/repo/ZBPServer/debian/arm/RPi /

Then:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install zbpserver
sudo reboot
sudo service zbp start
Use http://harmonygateway.com/ to setup initial Config.

Misc Setup

Setup Wi-Pi Dongle:

http://www.element14.com/community/docs/DOC-49107/l/wi-pi-wi-pi-wlan-installation-procedure-for-raspbian-on-raspberry-pi

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

For WPA/WPA2 add to the end of the file:

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid YOUWIFINANE
wpa-psk YOURWIFIPASS

I had issues due to other stuff in the networking file, my final file looked like:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid YOUWIFINANE
wpa-psk YOURWIFIPASS

Then:

sudo service networking restart

To setup FTP

sudo apt-get install vsftpd
sudo chmod -R 777 /var/www/
