Orochi – 8tracks.com client

Warning: Beta quality!

Build status

Orochi is a command line client for 8tracks.com written in Python.

Yamata no Orochi (八岐の大蛇) is a legendary 8-headed and 8-tailed Japanese dragon. The name translates to "8-branched giant snake". I chose the name because it both refers to the number eight (as in 8tracks) and to snakes (as in Python).

Configuration

The first time Orochi is started, it creates the config.json configfile in the ~/.config/orochi/ directory. The following configurations can be changed:

mplayer_extra_args:
    Extra arguments that are passed on to the mplayer instance.

Example configuration:

{
    "mplayer_extra_args": "-ao alsa:device=hw=1.0"
}

Development

Install requirements.txt (with pip install -r). Then start orochi the following way:

$ python -m orochi.client

For development and testing purposes, you can also pass in the --pdb argument. Then a debug session should be started if orochi crashes.

Coding Guidelines

PEP8 via flake8 with max-line-width set to 99 and E126-E128 ignored.

Testing

Install requirements-dev.txt, then run py.test in the main directory. Violations of the coding guidelines above will be counted as test fails.
