cursesmodule for a simple terminal-window interface. It shows all the Boodler classes and agents you have available. You can control it by keyboard, or with a remote control (see below).
You run this script in addition to Boodler. Boodler should be set running
python boodler.py --listen listen.LeashIf you want to use
serialwatch.pyas well, you should also be running this:
python serialwatch.py --port 31864Not much documentation otherwise. Experiment.
(I'm told the X10 motion-detector sends RF commands in the same way. So this script should work for that as well.)
Anyway, this is a Python script for Linux, which
squats on the serial port, listening for remote commands.
It translates them into commands on a TCP/IP connection --
the format used by Boodler. (The current version of Boodler
has some agents which accept these commands. See
catalog of soundscapes.)
See the script comments for full documentation.
Attached is a small helper shell script which i have found useful. If launched without args it launched the curses interface, otherwise it passes the args as-is to boodler. Maybe it will be useful to you and yours. Simply change the BOODLER_HOME variable at the top of the script and it "should" work.
I've been playing around with the idea of using boodler as the output side of a syslog auralization mechanism for my company's web system. [...] Part of this process for us involves wrapping a bit of php around the python, since that's much more familiar territory for me. I've appended a simple harness which should run with minimal modification on anyone else's machines. It just makes shell calls out to the boomsg.py scripts but builds a html page with links for the various available effects and sounds. Not as tidy as the leash.py curses tool but we're web people so it makes more sense for us.
