Stream music to your Airport Express with Ruby!

I just released raop-client which lets you stream music to your Airport Express with ruby.

Just install the gem: gem install raop-client ~~~

Here is a sample program which takes decoded input from stdin: ~~~ ruby require ‘raop-client’

raop = Net::RAOP::Client.new(ARGV[0]) raop.connect raop.play $stdin raop.disconnect ~~~

Just use the program like this: % lame --decode -q some_song.mp3 - | ruby streamer.rb ~~~

You’ll have to supply your own mp3 and Airport Express IP address. Also, raop-client currently doesn’t decode music, so you’ll have to decode the music yourself.
