A Mopidy extension for using it as an alarm clock.

Mopidy-AlarmClock was originally created by Mathieu Xhonneux and now is maintained by Davis Mosenkovs.


Install by running:

pip install Mopidy-AlarmClock


Optionally alarm defaults can be configured in mopidy.conf config file (the default default values are shown below):

# Default alarm time in Hours:Minutes format
def_time = 8:00

# Name or Mopidy URI of default alarm playlist
def_playlist =

# Default state of Random Track Order (true or false)
def_random = false

# Default alarm volume (integer, 1 to 100)
def_volume = 100

# Default seconds to full volume (integer, 0 to 300)
def_vol_inc_duration = 30


Make sure that the HTTP extension is enabled. Then browse to the app on the Mopidy server (for instance, http://localhost:6680/alarmclock/).

WARNING! It is strongly recommended to use only local playlists with local media (files) for alarm clock.

Althrough Mopidy-AlarmClock contains some safety measures against playlist/track inaccessibility (e.g. upon network outage) it is still much safer to use local media.
