How it is build

  • Flask (Python) backend server to provide APIs
  • AngularJS (JavaScript) frontend to consume APIs, built with the Bootstrap 4 boilerplate

How to run it

Install these packages if you don't already have them

sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-venv
pip3 install --upgrade pip setuptools

Let's clone the repo and create a virtual environment

git clone https://github.com/makebit/GenM3U.git
cd GenM3U/genm3u_server
mkdir venv
python3 -m venv venv/
source venv/bin/activate

Then you need to install the requirements

pip install -r requirements.txt

Then run the server with

export FLASK_APP=api.py
export FLASK_DEBUG=1
flask run

At the first run the server will generate your private key and it will print it (e.g. S6BHQMHD6B). Copy this key because we need it!

Now you are ready to open /genm3u_client/dist/index.html and connect to the server. Before that, click on File -> Settings and paste your key under "Private Key" field.

Now you are ready to build your playlist!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
