Controll mopidy without screen using GPIO and TTS

Project Description

Control mopidy without screen using GPIO and TTS

For example if you play “Rather Be - Clean Bandit” you will hear:

http://translate.google.com/translate_tts?tl=en&q=rather%20be%20by%20clean%20bandit

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

Features

  • Led to see if it is playing
  • Play/Pause
  • Next/Previous track
  • Select playlist
  • Hear the song name (Text To Speech)
  • Exit mopidy
  • Shutdown
  • Restart
  • Check IP

Installation

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:

sudo mopidy

Configuration

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.

Example:

[pin 17] - [Button] - [Ground]

Controls

  • main: play/pause. In menu select item
  • main longpress: enter/exit menu
  • vol_up longpress: repeat last sentence
  • vol_down longpress: set the volume 0
  • next: in menu navigate to next item
  • previous: in menu navigate to next item
