Controll mopidy without screen using GPIO and TTS
Control mopidy without screen using GPIO and TTS
For example if you play “Rather Be - Clean Bandit” you will hear:
TTS (Text To Speech) is used from google translate (It is not documented but it works).
The idea is to develop with GPIO buttons something similar to 3rd generation Ipod shuffle control
To use this extension you need an internet conection for the tts.
Install by running:
pip install Mopidy-TtsGpio
To access the GPIO pins in the raspberry pi you have to run mopidy with sudo:
Before starting Mopidy, you must add configuration for Mopidy-TtsGpio to your Mopidy configuration file:
[ttsgpio] debug_gpio_simulate = false # Set true to emulate GPIO buttons with on screen buttons pin_button_main = 17 pin_button_next = 22 pin_button_previous = 23 pin_button_vol_up = 24 pin_button_vol_down = 25 pin_play_led = 18
You can set the pins you would like to use. The numbers are in BCM mode. You can check here to see the numbers for your board. The buttons must be connected to GROUND.
[pin 17] - [Button] - [Ground]
