RFIDEA

About the stuff

An idea to manage your contactless discography, written in NodeJS, with simple tools provided. This project is still experimental, any contributions are welcome.

Installing

You need to install these dependencies :

  • mpd - music player daemon
  • libnfc
  • pcsc
  • mongodb

Then just do as usual:

npm install

Note you would likely require a contactless reader, and some contactless tags. I can suggest you the ones I've got:

Then you have to set chips on the back of each CD cover.

I would not recommand the ACR122U reader, beacause it's not officialy supported by PCSC, and have some limited support on Linux (no extended APDU).

I could support it this way nevertheless:

ACR122 driver from ACS

wget http://www.acs.com.hk/drivers/eng/ACR122_Driver_Lnx_Mac10.5_10.6_10.7_104_P.zip
unzip -d acr122u ACR122_Driver_Lnx_Mac10.5_10.6_10.7_104_P.zip
cd acr122u 
tar -jxvf acsccid-1.0.4
cd acsccid-1.0.4
./configure
make
sudo make install

NFC-tools

sudo apt-get install libusb-dev libpcsclite-dev debhelper libtool dh-autoreconf
sudo apt-get install libusb-0.1-4 libpcsclite1 libccid pcscd
git clone https://code.google.com/p/libnfc/
cd libnfc
dpkg-buildpackage -b -us -uc
sudo dpkg -i ../libnfc*.deb
# you can then try `nfc-list`
