Musicalypse is a modern audio player built with web technologies. It is available as an online or native version on main desktop platforms and provides a backend streaming server.

Developed in Typescript and Scala using Angular and akka.

Provided as a seemingly native application using electron.

To build both the frontend and backend of Musicalypse you will need:


To run Musicalypse from source use the following commands:

For the server

Run npm run web:run and connect to http://localhost:8080.

You can then serve Musicalypse behind a regular Web server (e.g. apache or nginx) and add authentication and SSL (Help wanted to document how to do that).

For the desktop

Run npm run electron:run and Musicalypse will launch inside electron.


Frontend development

Run npm run web:serve and connect to http://localhost:4200.

You get hot reloading of the application on file modification.

If you work on electron-specific frontend features then run npm run electron:serve.

Backend development

In two consoles run:

  • sbt run
  • npm run ng:serve

And connect to http://localhost:4200.

Note: You have to manually close the server by pressing Enter and restart it whenever you change a source file (help wanted to get hot reloading with akka-http).

Electron development

To develop the electron integration run npm run electron:build once to build dependencies and then run npm run electron:run:dev every time you change an electron source file (in the electron/ folder).

TODO: improve workflow if possible.


For the server

  • Expanded: npm run web:stage
  • Zip: npm run web:stage:zip
  • Tar: npm run web:stage:tar (linux only)

For the desktop

Musicalypse is packaged with a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) so you need a copy of your JRE in your target folder.

You can get it easily by running npm run electron:jre and entering the path to your JRE.


npm run electron:stage:linux

Note: You should run this command on Linux only.


npm run electron:stage:windows

Note: You should run this command on Windows only.
