Examples

There are several examples on the website. Here is the basic one to get you started:

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { PlayButton, Timer } from 'react-soundplayer/components';
import { withSoundCloudAudio } from 'react-soundplayer/addons';

const clientId = 'YOUR CLIENT ID';
const resolveUrl = 'https://soundcloud.com/ksmtk/chronemics';

const Player = withSoundCloudAudio(props => {
    let { track, currentTime } = props;

    return (
      <div className="custom-player">
        <PlayButton
          className="custom-player-btn"
          onPlayClick={() => {
            console.log('play button clicked!');
          }}
          {...props} />
        <h2 className="custom-player-title">
          {track ? track.title : 'Loading...'}
        </h2>
        <Timer 
          className="custom-player-timer"
          duration={track ? track.duration / 1000 : 0} 
          currentTime={currentTime} 
          {...props} />
      </div>
    );
});

const App = () => {
  return (
    <Player
      clientId={clientId}
      resolveUrl={resolveUrl}
      onReady={() => console.log('track is loaded!')} />
  );
};

ReactDOM.render(
  <App />, 
  document.getElementById('#app')
);

Custom Audio Example

It is also easy to built players without using SoundCloud API. You just need to pass audio source via streamUrl and all other necessary track meta information can be passed as custom props. Also you can choose preloadType, according to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/audio#Attributes, by default this property is equal to 'auto'.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { PlayButton, Timer } from 'react-soundplayer/components';

// it's just an alias for `withSoundCloudAudio` but makes code clearer
import { withCustomAudio } from 'react-soundplayer/addons';

// audio source
const streamUrl = 'https://example.org/path/to/file.mp3';

// some track meta information
const trackTitle = 'Great song by random artist';

const AWSSoundPlayer = withCustomAudio(props => {
  const { trackTitle } = props;

  return (
    <div>
      <PlayButton {...this.props} />
      <h2>{trackTitle}</h2>
      <Timer {...this.props} />
    </div>
  );
});

class App extends React.Component {
  render() {
    return (
      <AWSSoundPlayer
        streamUrl={streamUrl}
        trackTitle={trackTitle} 
        preloadType="auto" />
    );
  }
}

ReactDOM.render(<App />, document.getElementById('app'));
