Mopidy extension for controlling via input devices

Project description

Mopidy headless makes it possible to connect a HID (Human Interface Device), like a remote or a keyboard, to a Mopidy server.

Use ir-keytable from lirc to see which keycodes are supported:

# ir-keytable -td /dev/input/...


The default config is the following:

enabled = true

device = ;needs to be set

enable_numbers = true

volume_up = KEY_VOLUMEUP
volume_down = KEY_VOLUMEDOWN
play = KEY_PLAY
pause = KEY_PAUSE
playpause = KEY_ENTER
mute = KEY_MUTE
previous_playlist = KEY_CHANNELUP, KEY_UP
shuffle = KEY_RECORD

The device is found in /dev/input.

By default the numpad of the remote is bound to the corresponding playlists on your Mopidy installation. Disable this by setting enable_numbers to false.

Make sure that the user running mopidy can read from the device you want to use. See to allow a non-root user to read from input devices.
