Play the theremin with random strangers from the interet.


This repo proviedes sources for two binaries, an HTTP server and a web-socket server. To compile the HTTP server do:

git clone
cd theremins/http
cargo build --release

To compile the web-socket server simply swap line 2 above with:

cd theremins/ws


Run the executibles are located in target/release/. For example to run the web socket server on port 8001

./theremins/ws/target/release/theremins-ws-server --port 8001

For the HTTP server you have to specify where your web sockets server lives, so you need, for example:

./theremins/ws/target/release/theremins-http-server \
    --port 8000 \
    --ws-url ws://localhost:8001

Have fun.

Note. Currently IE does not support web audio. But if you are using IE10+ you should be able to play your theremin, but only people using more modern browsers can hear it.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
