A web frontend for pianobar, which is a CLI frontend for Pandora.
Provides a simple way for controlling what is playing on the radio. I use this to allow guests (and myself) to control the music playing outside on my patio with their phones.
This was inspired by Pidora. I wasn't happy with the way Pidora does templating so instead of forking that project, I wanted to start fresh. I also wanted to learn NodeJS and socket.io (websockets), so this was a great project for that.
A great way to control Pandora / Pianobar on a Raspberry Pi
curl -s https://github.com/kylejohnson/Patiobar/blob/master/install.sh | bash
git clone https://github.com/kylejohnson/Patiobar.git cd Patiobar bash install.sh
We assume that you've installed Patiobar to your users home directory!
- Follow the Install instructions above
pianobar, perhaps in a screen. e.g.
screen -S pianobar -d -m pianobar
- Login, if you don't have pianobar set to do that automatically
- Select a station, if one isn't already playing or configured to auto-play
- Start Patiobar:
cd Patiobar && node index.js
- Browse to the IP address or hostname of the machine running pianobar / Patiobar on port 3000. e.g. http://192.168.1.2:3000/
