Webamp

A reimplementation of Winamp 2.9 in HTML5 and JavaScript.

As seen on TechCrunch, Motherboard, Gizmodo, Hacker News (1, 2, 3, 4), and elsewhere.

Give it a try!

Screenshot of Webamp

Works in modern versions of Edge, Firefox, Safari and Chrome. IE is not supported.

Features

Check out this Twitter thread for an illustrated list of features: https://twitter.com/captbaritone/status/961274714013319168

Use Webamp in your own project

I've tried to make it possible to include Webamp in your own project.

See the usage documentation for more information.

Development

yarn
# Or: npm install
npm start

Open http://localhost:8080/webpack-dev-server/ in your browser.

# Run tests and lint checks
npm test

Building the demo site (webmap.org)

npm run build
npm run serve

Open the local ip/port that is output to the console in your browser.

Building the NPM module

npm run build-library

Testing

npm test

This will run both the tests and the linter.

Deploying

Netlify watches GitHub for new versions of master. When a new version is seen, it is automatically built using npm run build and pushed to the server. Additionally, Netlify will run a build on every pull request and include a link under the heading "Deploy preview ready!". This enables easy high level testing of pull requests.

In short, deploying should be as simple as pushing a commit to master.

Additionally, if you want to fork the project, deploying should be as simple as setting up a free Netlify account.

Advanced Usage

There are some "feature flags" which you can manipulate by passing a specially crafted URL hash. Simply supply a JSON blob after the # of the URL to change these settings:

  • skinUrl (string) Url of the default skin to use. Note, this file must be served with the correct Allows Origin header.
  • audioUrl (string) Url of the default audio file to use. Note, this file must be served with the correct Allows Origin header.
  • initialState (object) Override the initial Redux state. Values from this object will be recursively merged into the actual default state.

Note: These are intended mostly as development tools and are subject to change at any time.

Reference

Predecessors

  • Webamp2x An impressive implementation from 2002(!).
  • JsAmp An implementation from 2005 by @twm (via Hacker News).
  • LlamaCloud Comp From 2011 by Lee Martin (via Twitter)
  • Winamp em HTML5 e Javascript In 2010 a developer named Danilo posted one of his HTML5 experiments: "an audio player simulating good old Winamp". You will have to download the zip file.
  • JuicyDrop An HTML5 implementation with less emphasis on being true to the skin, but fully featured visualizations. @cggaurav is keeping it alive on GitHub
  • Spotiamp The folks at Spotify reimplemented Winamp as a frontend for Spotify. Not in a browser, and only runs on Windows.

Thank you to Justin Frankel and everyone at Nullsoft for Winamp which inspired so many of us.
