Controlling mopidy with lircd and Node-RED, screen with android tablet

Hey,

A quick shout out to all the people that made mopidy possible ! Thanks for a great project and a tinkerer’s comfy playground.

I’ve been playing a bit with combining mopidy with Node-RED https://nodered.org/

I’m controlling mopidy with a remote that uses lircd on a raspberrypi which is sending its signals to MQTT which in turn are used by node-red with some mopidy flows from https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-mopidy or Mopidy-MQTT https://github.com/odiroot/mopidy-mqtt

There’s some stuff in there to turn on and off an recycled android tablet that acts as a screen (using adb under the hood), as well as some OLED display. Also turning on and off the soundcard is almost working…

Yes overengineering to say the least. But it’s so much fun. (and it works!) and it’s really custom!

More details (in french) https://arthur.lutz.im/blog/2020/06/suringenierie-dun-systeme-de-son-diy/ (you should find the links to most projects used there).

If this sparks a conversation, I can publish more details in english here or else where.

Again thank you so much for a hackable platform. :heart_eyes: :heart:
