Ruby Murmur Manager

This is a quick library and control script for managing a murmur daemon. It supports both DBus and ICE (though you should really use ICE).

git clone git://
git submodule init
git submodule update


[server-id]                             List a server's config
[server-id] set [key] [val]             Set a server's config value
[server-id] start                       Start a server

Example usage: Creating and configuring a new virtual server

# ./manager.rb list

---------       ------
1               true
2               true
# ./manager.rb new
Server created. New ID is 2
Server config:
allowhtml                               true

# ./manager.rb 3 set port 54321
Server ID 3: port set to 612312
Server restarted
# ./manager.rb 3 set welcometext "Welcome to my Mumble server"
Server ID 3: welcometext set to Welcome to my Mumble server
Server restarted
# ./manager.rb 3 set superuser_password mynewpassword
Server ID 3: superuser_password set to mynewpassword
Server restarted
# ./manager.rb 3 start

Tada! A new virtual server has been spawned.
