Sonospy is a music server for Sonos that allows you overcome the 65,000 local track limit and also offers various customisation options.
Install the AUR package.
Sonospy is controlled by a set of configuration files, which contain comments and example setup:
- /etc/sonospy/sonospy.conf contains the systemctl service parameters
- /opt/sonospy/data/scan.ini configures the sonospy file scanner
- /opt/sonospy/data/pycpoint.ini is the main server ini
- /opt/sonospy/data/defaultindex.ini is the default userindex ini
- /opt/sonospy/data/userindex.ini is the customisable userindex ini
- SERVICE: Controls the service name displayed in Sonos
- Music Path: Sets the path to the music library
Note: Sonos_db and Sonos_ini are symlinked from /opt/sonospy/data to /opt/sonospy/app/sonospy so the application functions. If these are modified, then the equivalently named files should be available in/opt/sonospy/app/sonospy.
Note: This was introduced to comply with arch packaging standards and is not part of the source program.
Sonospy ini files
Details can be found in the files and examples can be found in /opt/sonospy/app/sonospy
Note: The data files are all symlinked to /opt/sonospy/app/sonospy
Sonospy has two services:
- A file scanner to catalogue the music and extract the metadata (sonospy-scan)
- A music server for Sonos (sonospy)
