Headset is a simple music player for Mac, Windows and Linux with integrated YouTube search, a home screen with popularity list by genres and eras, and best of all, a radio powered by Reddit. Headset takes the songs that are shared in over 80 music subreddits, categorizes them and plays them automatically. It's a great and pretty unique way to find new music as it is chosen by other humans like you and not by algorithms.

Build from source
If you would like to create a build for a different environment (e.g Manjaro or Aur, etc.) please follow these steps:
Install NodeJs 8 or later
Clone the Repo
$ git clone https://github.com/headsetapp/headset-electron.git
- Go into your specific OS folder and install dependencies
$ cd headset-electron/linux $ npm install
On Linux, the
dbus module also has it's own dependencies that need to be installed.
- Create your build:
electron-packager . \ --executable-name headset \ --ignore "(bin|Procfile|sig|gh-pages)" \ --prune true \ --out build/ \ --overwrite \ --asar \ --platform=linux \ --arch=x64
For Linux, a 32bit system is required in order to package Headset for
arch=ia32 due to
dbus module own dependencies.
- [Optional] For the Ubuntu build, we're using
electron-installer-debianand for the Fedora build, we're using
electron-installer-redhat. There might be an installer for your specific version, just have to google it.
