My hope is someone can help me figure out how to integrate the Apple MusicKit integration via JS to control a local library and/or Apple Music account.
I am currently using an android app called Retune that allows me to connect to my “server” computer running iTunes. I can control my music playback remotely to that device and other Airplay devices via the app. Unfortunately the developer for that app has not made any changes or updated in several years, yet the app works still. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.squallydoc.retune&hl=en_US
I am not a developer, yet I can see the great usage case for this functionality. I know there was a project by @obycode going on that allowed for a Mac to be controlled via Smartthings, however for those of use that don’t own Mac’s his solution didn’t work.
Here is my idea:
- Use the same framework in the Retune app to create a SmartApp that creates a Device Type to control basic controls of the Apple Music playback.
- Use the created Device to integrate into the #actiontiles platform (as this is what I use personally for my system), much like the Sonos type setup.
- Must make this a multi-platform use-case. Not limiting this to be run from a Mac only environment.
I am open to discussing this more and helping in anyway I can.
