with pip as easy as:
$ pip install vol
or checkout the latest version from github:
$ git clone https://github.com/bmaeser/vol.git $ cd vol $ python setup.py install
vol lets you control your mac's audio volume from the commandline. It also has support for profiles.
Because i want to have profiles, and want to change my audio-volume via commandline. So i can ssh into the box in my livingroom and change the volume while sitting on the couch.
vol (in|out|alert) <volume> vol mute vol unmute vol load <profile> vol info vol (-h | --help) vol --version Options: -h --help Show this screen. --version Show version.
set output volume to 50 (of 100 max):
vol out 50
set input (mic) volume to 10:
vol in 10
mute and unmute:
vol mute vol unmute
load a profile from
$HOME/.vol - file:
vol load party
vol looks for profiles in
.vol in your home.
If your username is 'bob' vol will parse
a short example for
[party] in= 0 alert= 0 out= 100 [silence] out = 0 in = 0 alert = 0 mute=True
.vol uses ini-style syntax. Please see the full example configfile in ./conf/
