SoundKloud

Build Status npm version

SoundKloud is a SoundCloud browser integrated with menu bar.

overall screenshot

SoundCloud is an awesome web service I often use. However, it provides only website in OS X. I don't want to find a browser in my desktop and then find the SoundCloud tab in my browser only for skipping, stopping and playing the music. So I created this app. You can access to the browser at any time via your Desktop menubar.

SoundKloud is cross-platform application (on Electron). You can use SoundKloud on OS X, Linux and Windows.

Installation

Release

Install SoundKloud from Release Page, unzip it. It is already ready to use.

  • OS X: Simply use SoundKloud.app in the directory. If you want to install it to your system, move it to ~/Applications.
  • Linux: Simply use soundkloud executable in the directory. If you want to install it to your system, set symbolic link to the executable from /usr/local/bin.
  • Windows: Simply use soundkloud.exe in the directory. No need to install.

Note: Windows package is removed temporarily because window location is not correct.

npm

$ npm install -g soundkloud
$ soundkloud
$ soundkloud --detach # Detach the process

Manually

$ git clone https://github.com/rhysd/SoundKloud.git && cd SoundKloud
$ npm install -g tsc tsd

$ npm install
$ rake run

Usage

After starting SoundKloud, you can find SoundCloud icon in menubar of your desktop.

menubar

SoundKloud is integrated with menu. So you can access the SoundCloud browser as if item of the menu. Just click it!

At first time, you need to sign in to the page. Please click "Sign in" in the page. After that, you need not to login anymore.

If you want to quit this app, please use key shortcut Control+Q (Command+Q for OS X).

Customization

You can customize SoundKloud with {app dir}/config.yml file. {app dir} is:

OSLocation
Linux~/.config/SoundKloud

WindowsSorry, I don't know

icon_type

You can specify the color of icon in menu bar. The possible values are gradient, grey and white. Default value is gradient.

hot_key

You can open SoundKloud without away from keyboard using hot key. Please be careful to choose the hot key because this is a global shortcut. Default value is mod+shift+s. If you want to disable hot key, please specify empty string.

flash_plugin

Value for the flash_plugin is an object which has 3 keys enabled, plugin_path and plugin_version. In some environment, some tracks on SoundCloud may require evil Flash player. If you want to enable it,

  • set enabled to true,
  • set path to your flash player which Chrome uses to plugin_path. (The name of flash player binary is "libpepflashplayer.so" for Linux, "PepperFlashPlayer.plugin" for OS X, "pepflashplayer.dll" for Windows)
  • set version of your flash player. You can check it in chrome://plugins tab of your Chrome.

shortcuts

You can define shortcuts in SoundKloud. This is an object of key input and action. Available actions are QuitApp, NextTrack, PreviousTrack, PlayStop, Shuffle, Reload, GoBack, GoForward, ScrollDown, ScrollUp, ScrollTop, ScrollBottom, Cut, Copy, Paste, selectAll, Undo, Redo and Open. SoundKloud uses mousetrap, so the format of the keyshortcut is the same as it. Please refer the document of mousetrap. If you set SoundCloud URL string as an action, the shortcut make the window jump to specified URL. Of course, you can use soundcloud.com website's key shortcuts (j for next track, k for previous track, and so on).
