Gem Version

Foxtracker is a parser for tracker music formats. Right now it only supports XM (FastTracker II) modules. Support for more formats is to be done.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'foxtracker'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install foxtracker


require "foxtracker/parser"

xm = Foxtracker::Parser.read(
  # path to xm file:
  File.expand_path("./siuperdu[perxmldsosnmg v2.xm", __dir__),
  # display debug output during parsing (default false)
  debug: true
#=> #<Foxtracker::Format::ExtendedModule title="superdupersongxmldng" tracker="MilkyTracker 1.00.00" ...>

  .patterns.first # the pattern 0
  .channels.first # the first channel
  .first          # the first row/note for the channel
  .note           #=> 85 (C-7); the note value


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
