    squeezy - a command-line wrapper around the squeezeserver telnet/CLI

    Hi,

    I've been using a couple of scripts to provide a shell command line interface to my squeezeserver for quite some time now. They also work well in scripts and from cron. I recently cleaned it all up and shoved the code on Google Code:

    http://code.google.com/p/squeezy/downloads/list

    This is just to let people know it's there, should anybody be interested. The README file is attached, as is a HELP file containing the full list of options (although this is specific to my players and my shortcuts).

    The feature list is pretty much focused on the things I do regularly. But its pretty easy to add more options.

    Steve

    I should have said .. if anybody's interested in using this and needs help or feature extensions, just let me know.

    (And, should a moderator happen to look at this page: perhaps you could fix the typos in the thread's subject line? Thanks.)

    Very cool! This is exactly what I need. I'll be playing with this in the next few days.

    Smile Thanks!

    This is also something that I've been looking for.
    I had started to create a poor man's version, but you're obviously a good bit ahead of the bash hacking I had started.

    I'm missing a few pieces ... Is it possible to make shortcuts for something like a Pandora (or other "My Apps" ) thing? I haven't tried to dig into that yet. Might

    It would be "nice" to be able to perform actions on "all players" with an option to "exclude" one or more players. My example is that I like to control the music to my infant's room separately.

    Thanks again!

    I'm afraid the functionality is limited at the moment to just the things I use -- and I don't use Pandora (or any other apps). It would be difficult to for me to test such an extension. Please feel free to go ahead and implement it yourself, if you like. The main part of the implementation is just a big associative array binding command names to perl functions. I'll happily incorporate any reasonable patches.

    Interesting idea. I'll think about that. The way I have things set up is with two groups: Kitchen, Living room and (my) Bedroom in one group, and my kids' two players in the other group. Groups were implemented really only with this setup in mind.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Excellent stuff! I have configured my MacBook's media keys (well the fn-keys) to control my player - saves me fumbling for the remote when working.

    Thanks for sharing your work.
