Trampoline -- AirPlay control service

Trampoline provides a node server that gives a RESTful API to AirPlay devices on the local network via node-airplay. The server can be used by applications on the local machine or network to discover AirPlay devices and control the playback of those devices with one API.

Eventually, Trampoline will provide transparent video serving (exposing individual local files over HTTP to enable playback from AirPlay devices) and transcoding (sourcing from local or remote video files and transcoding into a format that Apple devices will accept).

Quickstart

npm install trampoline
npm start trampoline

Installation

With npm:

npm install trampoline

From source:

cd ~
git clone https://benvanik@github.com/benvanik/trampoline.git
npm link trampoline/

Configuration

When using npm start, use npm config to change the launch options:

npm config set trampoline:port 8090
npm start trampoline

If launching directly via trampoline:

trampoline --port=8090

API

Content API

NOTE: content status readyToPlay must be true before attempting playback!

Setup a new content serving request:

POST /content/setup
    {
      source: {
        content: string,
        mimeType: string,     // 'video/webm'
        cookie: string,
        referer: string,
        auth: string          // user:password
      },
      target: {
        mimeType: string,     // 'video/mp4'
        resolution: number,   // 480, 720, 1080, undefined for original
        quality: number       // [0-1], undefined for don't care
      }
    }
--> {
      id: string
    }

GET /content/[id]
--> [streaming content]

PUT /content/[id]

DELETE /content/[id]

GET /content/[id]/status
--> {
      cached: boolean,
      seekable: boolean,
      readyToPlay: boolean
    }

POST /content/[id]/cache
    {}
--> {}

Device API

List all devices on the network (query occasionally):

GET /device/list
--> {
      devices: [
        {
          id: string,
          name: string,
          deviceId: string,
          features: number,
          model: string,
          slideshowFeatures: [],
          supportedContentTypes: [string, ...]
        }, ...
      ]
    }

Get the information of a specific device:

GET /device/id/
--> {
      id: string,
      name: string,
      deviceId: string,
      features: number,
      model: string,
      slideshowFeatures: [],
      supportedContentTypes: [string, ...]
    }

Get the playback status of a device:

GET /device/id/status
--> {
      duration: number,
      position: number,
      rate: number,
      playbackBufferEmpty: boolean,
      playbackBufferFull: boolean,
      playbackLikelyToKeepUp: boolean,
      readyToPlay: boolean,
      loadedTimeRanges: [
        {
          start: number,
          duration: number
        }, ...
      ],
      seekableTimeRanges: [
        {
          start: number,
          duration: number
        }, ...
      ]
    }

Begin playback of the given content:

POST /device/id/play
    {
      content: string,
      start: number
    }
--> {}

Stop playback of the current content:

POST /device/id/stop
    {}
--> {}

Seek to the given position in the current content:

POST /device/id/scrub
    {
      position: number
    }
--> {}

Change the playback rate of the current content (0 = pause, 1 = resume):

POST /device/id/rate
    {
      value: number
    }
--> {}

Adjust the playback volume:

POST /device/id/volume
    {
      value: number
    }
--> {}

TODO: Post a photo for slideshow mode:

POST /device/id/photo
    {
      content: string,
      transition: string
    }
--> {}
