Python implementation of Source Live Audio Mixer

Project description


CSGO implemenation of SLAM, written in python.

The binaries pyslam and pyslam-ytdl are provided.

pyslam-ytdl will download songs into mp3 format from YouTube to the configured music directory.


Configuration location

The configuration file location respects XDG, and will try the following paths, in this order:

  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam.yaml
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam.yml
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam/slam.yaml
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam/slam.yml
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam/config.yaml
  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/slam/config.yml


  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME will default to $HOME/.config on most systems.
  • PySLAM uses a lazy match. This means the first file from the above list which exists will be used.

Example configuration


# Key which will be bound to play music
# If not specified, will default to mouse3
bindkey: KP_END

# Path in which music will be stored
# If not specified, will default to $XDG_DATA_HOME/slam/music
# NOTE: In older versions, a key named 'paths' which accepted a list was used
# This is now deprecated.
  path: /home/alex/Documents/slam


  # Path to game folder
  # This value is mandatory
  game: /opt/games/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive

  # List of paths to which the pyslam.cfg file will be written
  # If unspecified, will write to csgo/cfg folder under the game folder specified above
  # i.e. in this config: /opt/games/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/cfg
    - /opt/games/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/cfg
