Shell scripting
Authored by: jokke on Mar 09, '05 05:28:18PM

If you're looking for something a little smaller and - perhaps - more geekish, I once made a shell script that accomplishes somewhat the same using nothing but AppleScript and shell scripting. It is - obviously - very customizable though it might require more skills.

Read about the script here: jokke.dk.

The script uploads a text-file with the artist and name of current song, which you can then display with php, perl or whatever you happen to use.

There are many ways to improve this little thing. Checking wether iTunes is running at all might be a good idea, using 'ps' for instance.
Comments are more than welcome - also on my site :)
