Tasty Shapes With Friends - API

MIT license Release Unit Tests

A tiny SaaS for sharing song links with your friends over a common stream.


tswf-api is a api interface for interacting with a queue that serves as a playlist for the tswf-player rtmp streaming worker:

  • tswf-api serves the flask routes for interacting with the queue
  • tswf-player plays song links submitted to the queue by calling the api


The API is simple, with more functionality on the way as time permits.

/submit?song=<urlencoded song link> <-  submit a song to the queue
/stat                               <-  the length of the queue
/queue                              <-	the queue
/clear                              <-  in case of emergencies
/next                               <-  used by player (and assholes)
/current                            <-  currently playing URL
/skip?username=<username>           <-  Vote to skip song

Getting Started

You can build full documentation for this project by doing the following:

$ cd doc/
$ make html
$ make -b coverage

generated documentation is stored in doc/build/html, with a report of any undocumented code in doc/build/coverage.

This project is intended to be run with docker-compose. Depending on what operating system you are using, you may want to grab it from your package manager, or directly from upstream.

should be able to simply run:

docker build -t <name> .

and after you've built the container:

docker-compose up -d or docker run -d -p8080:8080 api:latest


It's assumed that the API and Player are sitting behind NGINX. Included in this repository is an example api.conf. The api.conf should be included within the http block of your nginx.conf. An example nginx.conf is provided below:

user  nginx;
worker_processes  1;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    ssl on;
    ssl_session_cache	shared:SSL:10m;
    ssl_session_timeout	10m;
    ssl_session_tickets	off;

    sendfile        on;
    keepalive_timeout  70;
    include /etc/nginx/conf.d/api.conf;

include /etc/nginx/conf.d/rtmp.conf;

If you are running NGINX on another host, you will need to modify api.conf and rtmp.conf to point to the address of the NGINX host, rather than localhost (

If things worked as intended, you should see the player attempt to grab a song from the queue immediately.
