How to TTS

(Subnet88) #1


I am attempting to build a sonos app to play a custom mp3 using the playTrackAndResume method, similar to what the notify with sound smartapp already does, but am having difficulty converting my text to an mp3 through a free service. Is there an example out there of how SmartThings currently does it with the Notify with Sound app?

All of the Sonos apps are available to view in the IDE. Great way to see how they are doing different things within the Labs apps.

I cant seem to find it, do you have directions to click through, or a url?

No problem, while editing an app’s code look in the upper right and there should be a link to “browse smartapps” or something similar.

This will show you a list of apps and the so is stuff is at the bottom. Clicking one will open a modal with the code and allow you to view diff and overwrite your app code. Or just copy/paste the bit you need!

Hope this helps,
