Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

can we restart it after we use "q" to quit? I noticed the only way to get new stations to show in the list is to restart the service No, you're unable to start it back after quitting. However, fixing it to where it'll update the station's list should be easy. I'll get to work on that right away. :i...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

A small, but cool (or, I think it is) update: Pidora will now play NPR's Daily News Summary as it becomes available each hour. This turns Pidora from simply being a Pandora client to being a more modern radio. After the 5 minute broadcast, the music comes right back. If you wish to update your insta...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

You can now change the station via the web interface. Pressing "s" or clicking "Station" will give you a list of your stations and by clicking or keypressing will change it. Enjoy.

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

What would be a great addition would be the ability to start or stop pianobar. That's definitely in the works. Until then though, pausing it is just as effective. And if it stays paused for long enough, on unpause pianobar will dump the old playlist and start playing a new one due to a timeout. But...

New feature: Song Explanations. By pressing "e" on the keyboard, we'll display the song's features as identified by the Music Genome Project. I'll be working on station changing next. If you want more features, submit a feature request at GitHub. https://github.com/jacroe/pidora Thank y'all for your...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

Ideally I would like to have a web GUI to control the headless pandora box, simple enough my wife can operate with her smart phone or laptop without having to know ssh etc.. Curious to know if you got an further along? Now that I'm out for Christmas break I've been able to finish building the contr...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

I noticed that on your github page you recently added mousetrap.js. I haven't figured out how to use this. I'm not sure if this is keyboard shortcut for the keyboard attached to the pi, or the computer of the browser connecting. Could you please add instructions? Thanks again Yeah no problem. So Mo...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

I took a look at MyWebPlayer and creating sockets seems to be a little bit of overkill. We already use a FIFO with PHP's file_put_contents. And running another program (albeit a shell script) could turn into another point of failure if you use the controls religiously. That said, the general concept...

Re: How to install XBMC on Wheezy Raspbian

You'll probably be better off using something like RaspBMC, OpenElec, or Xbian.

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

Nice little app, controls would be great! What you listed as controls are pretty much what is needed, maybe the ability to change a station. I'm currently working on the controls right now. The back-end is finished, but I'm still deciding how I want to have them be displayed, trying to figure out h...

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

If you'll give me some time, I can easily add controls. That's something I wanted to do anyway. What all do you need? Play/Pause, Next, Thumbs Up and Down, Tired. What else?

I'll be getting out of university for Thanksgiving on Wednesday. I should be able to build it in then.

Re: Pidora: My Pandora radio

Wow, I'm so glad you were able to use it, and for your baby no less. That's incredible. Oh I totally wanted it to be headless from the get-go, and I'm so excited that you're able to get it working with analog audio without any hitches. Awesome! If you did follow all the instructions and have the web...

Re: Continual Pianobar Setup

You could also set up a FIFO control file and then just do something like:

Code: Select all

echo "ps7
" > pianobar-fifo
This won't work though if you you don't know how pianobar orders your stations.

Pidora: My Pandora radio

This isn't nearly as neat or cool as some of the other projects being shown in this forum, but I figure I'll show what I've thrown together. Pidora uses pianobar and a small PHP web app to play music from a Pandora radio station over HDMI (since we have that analog audio bug I couldn't make it headl...
