Add plugin for LiquidSoap in AzuraCast
As you know, AzuraCast comes with pre-built liquidsoap config. In order to enable any plugin, according to its authors, you will need to manually re-build the docker image, and use it as replacement for original container.
As I am not familiar much with Docker, I’ve overgone a dirty way to enable specific plugin, called
soundtouch in my `Ubuntu & Docker` Azuracast installation ( So, there might be easier way, if so, please comment it)
- Put the contents of
this repointo a new folder, i.e.:
- In its
Dockerfile, where it says
opam_packages .... liquidsoap, before liquidsoap, add
soundtouchin the list.
- In the end of file:
build/setup/liquidsoap.shin the end of the plugins list, add
- then open up a terminal and run:
cd /var/azuracast && docker build -t my_custom_station ./my-radio-image
After several minutes needed, it will complete process, and note that it shouldn’t produced error. To confirm that, run
docker imagesand in the list you should see the latest image named
my_custom_station. If not, you should correct the build error.
- then in
version: '2.2' services: stations: image: "my_custom_station:latest"
Then run the command:
docker-compose up -d
After that, added function in liquidsoap configuration, restarted liquidsoap (wait several seconds in between) and it was working.
NOTE: On every update of official AzuraCast-Radio package, you might need to do this process again, to adopt the new azura-stations image.
