Rdio.com remote for Firefox
You shouldn't use this for now! I'm playing with Rdio and Firefox's JS add-on toolkit, and started this on a Sunday afternoon. JS Hackers only. :p
This is a Firefox add-on to control rdio.com's web-app without using Firefox's UI (mouse, or keyboard). The idea is to open Rdio.com in the background, or (as of now) in a browser tab, to then control it through Firefox's embedded HTTPd.
To get started, you will need to:
1. Get an account on rdio.com 2. Setup the Mozilla's [add-on SDK](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/developers/builder) on your computer. 3. Clone the git repository at git://github.com/oz/rdio-ff-remote.git 4. Hack your way around.
When running, the add-on starts an HTTP server on port 8000 (hard-coded for now). Be sure that nothing is running here, or it won't start.
It talks in JSON.
Since the project-goal is to control rdio.com through HTTP (!), these are the paths available so far.
GET /statustells when the player is ready.
POST /play_pauseallows you to play/pause the current song.
- This is alpha-software, without any guarantees.
- Hey, you've got a HTTP server running on your machine for every local user to abuse (wait, is that not a feature?).
- It shouldn't work.
- I guess it's OK, but I should definitely check Rdio's terms of service.
