SoundControl - Music Management

Introduction

SoundControl is a library for managing multiple music players including iTunes and Spotify (currently OSX only). The library lets you globally pause and resume music playback. It is used in the Sqwiggle desktop client for Mac and works well with node-webkit.

Installation

$ npm install soundcontrol

Usage

// pause all audio players 
music.pause();
 
// resume playback in previously paused audio player 
music.resume();
 
// you can also start and stop playback in a specific app 
music.play('iTunes');
music.pause('rdio');
 
// there are also some utility methods that are used internally 
// but are exposed as they may be useful such as: 
music.isItunesPlaying(function(err, playing){
    if (playing) console.log('iTunes is currently playing');
});
