Welcome to Showergel’s documentation!¶
Showergel is made to live aside Liquidsoap: while a Liquidsoap script creates a radio stream, Showergel provides complementary features like logging or occasional scheduling, with a (minimalist) Web interface. It is made to run on a Linux box (with systemd) dedicated to your radio stream.
With Showergel you still have to write/tune the Liquidsoap script that will fit your radio. That is, the set of sources ( playlist, input.harbor, …) and operators ( random, switch, fallback, …) that fits your programs and schedule. This documentation only provide a starter script, covering Liquidsoap’s basics and Showgel’s integration.
Showergel is meant for community and benevolent radios. Therefore we’ll keep it small and simple:
Showergel is intended to run on the same machine as Liquidsoap.
The REST/Web interface is served by the Bottle framework, because it’s enough and allows keeping everything in a single process.
Showergel’s data is stored in SQLite because its architecture fits perfectly our use case (everything in a single, local file).
