Bored of silent pipelines? Want to hear when somethings working?
npm install flute -g ♬♩♩♬♩ flute ♬♩♬♩♩♬ Usage: flute [arg] Options: -t, --track use specified track -l, --library use tracks from config ~/.flute.yml -s, --seek seek to hh:mm:ss (used with -t; requires mplayer)
Flute passed with no arguments plays a rubbish default flute sound. However, this can be changed to a list of tracks by specifying them in a config file with the following steps:-
- Create a ~/.flute.yml file
Populate it with the absolute path of your files ('tracks:' at the top is important):-
tracks: - ~/Music/Lana Del Rey/Born to Die/06 National Anthem.m4a - ~/Music/Compilations/Final Fantasy VII/1-07 Hurry!.m4a - ~/Music/Compilations/Final Fantasy VII/4-08 Hurry Faster!.m4a
Pass the -l argument to flute and it will pick one of these at random. Optionally, pass -t with an argument file location to play that certain track.
Inject flute into your pipeline wherever you would in place of cat:-
pv -L 5k ~/Desktop/eI3s-dvZysU.flv | flute > /dev/null youtube-dl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azOWjmfUqVw -o - | flute > harris.flv dd if=/dev/urandom | pv -L 10M | flute -l > /dev/null flute -t yeah.mp3 -s 1:40 | while true; do ( seq 0 100 | sort -R | spark | lolcat -a ); done;
