Pibooth plugin to add sound effects.

Project description

Python 3.6+ PyPi package PyPi downloads

pibooth-sound-effects is a plugin for the pibooth application.

It adds sound effects to the application:

  • When pressing on the first menu –> click

  • When selecting a layout –> click

  • During the countdown –> countdown

  • When entering the “thank you” menu –> applause

Sounds can be customized (see below).


$ pip3 install pibooth-sound-effects


Here below the new configuration options available in the pibooth configuration. The keys and their default values are automatically added to your configuration after first pibooth restart.


# Path to the sounds folder
sounds_path = <s>~/.config/pibooth/sounds</s>

Customize sounds

Sound files shall be .wav and have the name of the state in which it shall be played (e.g. {state}.wav). If you want to play the sound in loop, just add “_loop” in the name (e.g. {state}_loop.wav).

For example at the print level: - if it exists, the sound named print.wav will be played once, when entering the state - if it exists, the sound named print_loop.wav will be played in loop until the state is left.

Custom sounds can be added by adding or replacing existing sound files of the sounds folder (by default ~/.config/pibooth/sounds) with custom ones.

Specific features

In addition to the standard {state}.wav and {state_loop}.wav states, other sound files are accepted in preview state:

  • if you have a preview sound (preview.wav file), then it will play when entering the state,

  • if you want to play the same sound for each time of the countdown, name it as preview_countdown.wav,

  • if you want to play different sounds for each time of the countdown, simply add corresponding files in the sound folder (e.g.: 3.wav, 2.wav, 1.wav)
