webradio-metadata

0.1.39 • Public • Published

Collection of urls and parsing scripts to fetch metadata about what is being broadcast on several webradios. Provides for each radio:

  • an artist
  • a title
  • a cover image (if available)

Code is JS only.

Note that this module gets the information from the radio websites, as most radios have a website indicating what is being broadcast live.

It could have been possible to parse ICY metadata, but it is missing or broken in most situations.

Installation

npm install webradio-metadata

Command-line usage

  • To display the list of compatible radios.
nodejs index.js list
  • To check that the parsing scripts are working correctly. Empty result means success.
nodejs index.js test
  • To get the metadata from a specific radio. If the country or the name of a radio has multiple words, use quotes.
nodejs index.js COUNTRY NAME

Example usages

$ nodejs index.js "France" "France Info"
{"err":null,"data":{"artist":"Le 17 | 20 : Nicolas Teillard","title":"Droit à l'erreur - Guillaume Poitrinal"},"corsEnabled":false}
$ nodejs index.js "France" "Radio Nova"
{"err":null,"data":{"artist":"AL GREEN","title":"LET'S STAY TOGETHER","cover":"https://nova.fr/sites/default/files/CQCT/2017-07/al-green-lets-stay-together-2893.jpeg"},"corsEnabled":true}
  • To get metadata for all supported radios.
  • Output in JSON:
nodejs index.js all-json
  • Output in human readable format:
nodejs index.js all-human

Usage as a module

require("webradio-metadata").getMeta(country, name, function(errors, parsedData, corsEnabled) { ... });
require("webradio-metadata").getAll(function(results) { ... });

Usage in browser

This project uses Node.JS scripts. Code cannot be run in the browser because some of the urls fetched do not have the CORS HTTP header Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *. Ressource loading would be blocked by the browser.

Contributing

You are welcome to submit a PR to add a new recipe for a radio or to fix a current recipe. Three strategies have been used to write the recipes:

  • parsing a JSON/XML API used by the radio website to dynamically update the page contents (GET or POST).
  • connecting through a websocket to receive metadata.
  • brute parsing the live webpage contents when no API is available.

When you have identified how to extract the data, you need to have a look at two files:

  1. Radio indexes: parsers/COUNTRY/index.js

Example syntax with COUNTRY=France and NAME=Fun Radio:

[
  ...
  { name: "Fun Radio", url: "https://www.funradio.fr/direct", parser: require("./RTL2") },
  ...

The name field should match the corresponding entry in the radio browser wiki. The url field is the path to the ressource to load. The parser field indicates the path to the parsing script. It is most often named as the radio itself, but can be another one, when the syntax for the other radio is the same.

  1. Parsers: parsers/COUNTRY/NAME.js

Sample:

"use strict";
const axios = require("axios");
 
module.exports = async function(exturl) {
  try {
    const req = await axios.get(exturl);
    const parsedResult = req.data;
    // const artist = ???
    // const title = ???
    // const cover = ???
    return { artist, title, cover };
  } catch (error) {
    return { error };
  }
}
