Volumio2 - adding another node js app

Postby Psycik » Thu Jul 21 2016 10:27

Am I correct in understanding that volumio is a nodejs app?

I have another app I'd like to put on my system (lirc_web) - could put this on there and have it also start like volumio does?

If so how please.

Lirc web exposese lirc to we.json requests I use it from openhab to control my stereo that the volumko pi is connectd to.

Just a follow up, yes it was possible.

I downloaded lirc_web from github - https://github.com/alexbain/lirc_web
Added node-express to the machine (apt-get install node-express)
Then using npm compiled and installed it.

Changed it's config from port 3000 (since something from volumio uses that).
Then made a systemd service file for it.
And now it starts.
