SoCo 0.8 release notes¶
- Re-added support for Python 2.6 (#154)
- Added SoCo.get_sonos_playlists() (#114)
- Added methods for working with speaker topology
soco.SoCo.group retrieves the soco.groups.ZoneGroup to which the speaker belongs (#132). The group itself has a soco.groups.ZoneGroup.member attribute returning all of its members. Iterating directly over the group is possible as well.
- z1 = SoCo('192.168.1.101') z2 = SoCo('192.168.1.102') z1.join(z2)
soco.SoCo.is_bridge indicates if the SoCo instance represents a bridge.
A new soco.plugins.spotify.Spotify plugin allows querying and playing the Spotify music catalogue (#119):
from soco.plugins.spotify import Spotify from soco.plugins.spotify import SpotifyTrack # create a new plugin, pass the soco instance to it myplugin = Spotify(device) print 'index: ' + str(myplugin.add_track_to_queue(SpotifyTrack(' spotify:track:20DfkHC5grnKNJCzZQB6KC'))) print 'index: ' + str(myplugin.add_album_to_queue(SpotifyAlbum(' spotify:album:6a50SaJpvdWDp13t0wUcPU')))
A soco.data_structures.URI item can be passed to add_to_queue which allows playing music from arbitrary URIs (#147)
import soco from soco.data_structures import URI soc = soco.SoCo('...ip_address...') uri = URI('http://www.noiseaddicts.com/samples/17.mp3') soc.add_to_queue(uri)
Network requests can be cached for better performance (#131).
It is now possible to subscribe to events of a service using its subscribe method, which returns a Subscription object. To unsubscribe, call the unsubscribe method on the returned object. (#121, #130)
Support for reading and setting crossfade (#165)
