stouyapi - Static OUYA API

A static API for the OUYA gaming console that still lets you sign in and install games, despite the OUYA server shutdown in 2019.

Setup

OUYA config change

  • Mount via USB (Micro USB cable)

  • Create file ouya_config.properties

  • Add:

    OUYA_SERVER_URL=http://stouyapi.boo
    OUYA_STATUS_SERVER_URL=http://stouyapi.boo/api/v1/status
    

The changes should take effect immediately. If they do not, reboot the OUYA once.

OUYA setup

  1. User registration: "Existing account"
  2. Enter any username, leave password empty. Continue.
  3. Skip credit card registration

The username will appear on your ouya main screen.

Apache setup

Virtual host configuration:

Script PUT /empty-json.php
Script DELETE /api/v1/queued_downloads_delete.php

mod_actions and mod_expires need to be enabled for apache 2.4.

The virtual host's document root needs to point to the www folder.

Building API data

Download the OUYA game data repository from https://github.com/ouya-saviors/ouya-game-data and then generate the API files with it:

$ git clone https://github.com/ouya-saviors/ouya-game-data.git
$ ./bin/import-game-data.php ouya-game-data/folders

Building the web discover store

After building the API files, generate the HTML:

$ ./bin/build-html.php

Push to my OUYA

stouyapi's HTML game detail page have a "Push to my OUYA" button that allows anyone to tell his own OUYA to install that game. It works without any user accounts, and is only based on IP addresses.

If your PC that you click the Push button on and your OUYA have the same public IP address (IPv4 NAT), or the same IPv6 64bit prefix, then the OUYA will install the game within 5 minutes.

It will also work if you run stouyapi inside your local network, because all private IP addresses are mapped to a special "local" address.

You can inspect your own download queue by simply opening /api/v1/queued_downloads in your browser.
