      Usage: streamjockey [rcfile]
      Options:

        -v, --version         output the version number

RC file


RC file should be a valid nodejs module and consist of key-value pairs

where key is url matcher and value contains at least this 3 functions: play, pause, is_playing

optionally there might be functions prev and next


after installation application saves default RC file here: ~/.sjrc.js with snippets for page http://nogizhopaboroda.github.io/streamjockey#demo

check it out to get into


all the functions should be javascript snippets that can be executable on target page, e.g.:

document.querySelector('<play button selector>').click();
//or 
window.AudioPlayerInstance.play();

you can test them right in browser console on target page

play: plays media

pause: stops/pauses media

is_playing: should return true if media is playing and false or anything else if not

next: next media source

prev: previous media source

Example:

module.exports = {
  "<url_matcher>": { //e.g.: "nogizhopaboroda.github.io/streamjockey" 
    /* required functions */
    "play": function(){
      document.querySelector('<play button selector>').click();
      return 'play'; //return is optional 
    },
    "pause": function(){
      document.querySelector('<pause button selector>').click();
      return 'pause';
    },
    "is_playing": function(){
      //return is required 
      return document.querySelector('<play/pause button selector>').classList.contains('playing');
    },
    /* optional functions */
    "next": function(){
      document.querySelector('<next button selector>').click();
    },
    "prev": function(){
      document.querySelector('<prev button selector>').click();
    },
  }
}

As long as RC file is node module, you can require one module from another, e.g.:

// ~/.sjrc.js 
module.exports = require('./.dotfiles/sjrc.js');

There might be more than one target sites. Streamjockey handles it well


Just check out the demo if you still didn't do so. It can tell much more than text here

How it works

Application uses native binding for mediakeys interception (https://github.com/tcr/mediakeys) and executes js code in browser using applescript. That's why there is no Firefox support - it's not scriptable.
