Groove Basin – Music player server with a web-based user interface inspired by Amarok 1.4.
Music player server with a web-based user interface.
Run it on a server connected to some speakers in your home or office. Guests can control the music player by connecting with a laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Further, you can stream your music library remotely.
Groove Basin works with your personal music library; not an external music service. Groove Basin will never support DRM content.
The web client feels like a desktop app, not a web app. It predicts what the server will do in order to hide network lag from the user.
Auto DJ which automatically queues random songs, favoring songs that have not been queued recently.
Drag and drop upload. Drag and drop playlist editing. Keyboard shortcuts for everything.
Streaming support. You can listen to your music library – or share it with your friends – even when you are not physically near your home speakers.
File system monitoring. Add songs anywhere inside your music directory and they instantly appear in your library.
Installation on Ubuntu
For Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty:
sudo apt-get install nodejs libgrooveloudness-dev libgroovefingerprinter-dev libgrooveplayer-dev libgroove-dev
- Clone this repo and cd to it.
npm run build
For Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic:
- Install node-groove and its dependencies from source by following these instructions: https://github.com/andrewrk/node-groove/blob/2.x/README.md#ubuntu-1804
package.json, and change the
"groove"dependency to point to the directory where node-groove is installed. (The path is instead of a version number.)
- Resume step 2 above.
When Groove Basin starts it will look for
config.json in the current directory. If not found it creates one for you with default values.
Use this to set your music library location and other settings.
It is recommended that you generate a self-signed certificate and use that instead of using the public one bundled with this source code.
$ npm run dev
This will install dependencies, build generated files, and then start the sever. It is up to you to restart it when you modify assets or server files.
