#react-responsive-audio-player

A simple, clean, and responsive visual wrapper for the HTML audio tag, built with React. Give it a playlist and go.

See it live at http://benwiley4000.github.io/react-responsive-audio-player/.

If you’re not using npm and you need production-ready scripts to include in your project, check out the releases.

##Usage HTML:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head><link rel="stylesheet" href="audioplayer.css"></head>
  <body>
    <div id="audio_player_container"></div>
    <script src="dist/main.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

JavaScript (with JSX):

// dist/main.js
var React = require('react');
var ReactDOM = require('react-dom');
var AudioPlayer = require('react-responsive-audio-player');

var playlist =
  [{ url: 'audio/track1.mp3',
     displayText: 'Track 1 by Some Artist' },
   { url: 'audio/track2.mp3',
     displayText: 'Some Other Artist - Track 2' }];
ReactDOM.render(
  <AudioPlayer playlist={ playlist } hideBackSkip={ true } />,
  document.getElementById('audio_player_container')
);

JavaScript (without JSX):

// dist/main.js
...
ReactDOM.render(
  React.createElement(AudioPlayer, {
    playlist: playlist,
    hideBackSkip: true
  }),
  document.getElementById('audio_player_container')
);

##Getting started ###Quick start The fastest way to get off the ground with this module is to paste the following code into an HTML file and open it in a web browser:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1">
    <title>React Responsive Audio Player</title>
    <style> html, body { margin: 0; background: lightseagreen; } </style>
    <!-- audioplayer.css v0.3.0 -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.rawgit.com/benwiley4000/react-responsive-audio-player/66e872d54df1f97a91611e115127bb6a1d3a173a/audioplayer.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="audio_player_container"></div>

    <!-- react/react-dom served over CDN -->
    <script src="https://fb.me/react-0.14.7.js"></script>
    <script src="https://fb.me/react-dom-0.14.7.js"></script>
    <!-- classnames v2.2.3 -->
    <script src="https://cdn.rawgit.com/JedWatson/classnames/a6934cd623c1ea2a895575af9c83b08c8bdd3b05/index.js"></script>
    <!-- audioplayer.js v0.3.0 -->
    <script src="https://cdn.rawgit.com/benwiley4000/react-responsive-audio-player/66e872d54df1f97a91611e115127bb6a1d3a173a/audioplayer.js"></script>
    <script>
      var playlist =
        [{ url: 'song1.mp3', displayText: 'Track 1 - a track to remember' },
         { url: 'song2.ogg', displayText: 'Oggs Oggs Oggs' }];
      ReactDOM.render(
        React.createElement(AudioPlayer, { playlist: playlist, autoplay: true, autoplayDelayInSeconds: 2.1 }),
        document.getElementById('audio_player_container')
      );
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

Of course you’ll need to include paths to actual audio files, or the player will display and not work.

###Package installation If you use npm and a front-end package bundling system like Browserify or webpack, it’s recommended that you install the package and its dependencies in your project:

npm install --save react-responsive-audio-player classnames react react-dom

While react-dom isn’t technically a peer dependency, you’ll need it if you plan to place the audio player in the DOM, which you probably will.

When you first include the component in your project it might not look how you’re expecting. Be sure to check the Styling section below.

###Pre-built releases If you prefer not to use a package bundler, you can find built releases to download here.

##Options Options can be passed to the AudioPlayer element as props. Currently supported props are: * playlist: an array containing urls and display text for each of the tracks you wish to play (see above example for format). undefined by default.

  • autoplay: a boolean value (true/false) that if true will cause the player to begin automatically once mounted. false by default.

  • autoplayDelayInSeconds: a number value that represents the number of seconds to wait until beginning autoplay. Will be ignored if autoplay is false. 0 by default. NOTE: Delay is managed by setTimeout and is therefore inexact. If you need to time an autoplay exactly, find a different module that uses the WebAudio API for playback (or fork this one!).

  • gapLengthInSeconds: a number value that represents the number of seconds to wait at the end of a track before beginning the next one in the playlist. Not applicable for manually-initiated skip. 0 by default. NOTE: Like autoplayDelayInSeconds, this delay is inexact.

  • hideBackSkip: a boolean value that if true disables the back skip button by hiding it from view. false by default.

  • stayOnBackSkipThreshold: a number value that represents the number of seconds of progress after which pressing the back button will simply restart the current track. 5 by default.

  • placeAtTop: a boolean value that if true places the player at the top of the page rather than at the bottom. false be default.

None of these options is required, though the player will be functionally disabled if no playlist prop is provided.

##Styling IMPORTANT NOTES * In order to use the default stylings you’ll need to grab the compiled audioplayer.css sheet from the module’s dist/ directory. Again, if you’re not using npm, you can get the sheet here. * Include the following code in your own CSS to ensure the audio player takes up the full screen width:

html,
body {
  margin: 0;
}

The default look:

Audio Player Screenshot

The default stylings for the audio player can be found here. It’s easy to override them with CSS.

To change the font-family for the whole component, use:

.audio_player {
  font-family: Helvetica,sans-serif;
}

To make the audio player’s background color firebrick, use:

.audio_player {
  background-color: #b22222;
}
.audio_player .play_pause_button .triangle_1,
.audio_player .play_pause_button .tirangle_2 {
  border-right-color: #b22222;
}

##Contribute Contributions are welcome. If you’d like to implement a new feature, please open an issue first.

###Build To install build dependencies, run npm install.

Run webpack with npm run build. Built files can be found in the dist/ directory. You can also use npm run dev; it’s configured to do exactly the same thing, except it will continue watching for any changes you make, and recompile.

If you plan to submit a pull request, please test your changes. You can create a symbolic link from the module to your project to make those tests easier.

# inside of project/node_modules/ directory (module doesn't exist here yet)
ln -s ../../path/to/module/repository/ react-responsive-audio-player

And you can delete that symbolic link (without deleting the linked directory) with rm react-responsive-audio-player (no slash).

You can also try doing this with npm link. However, it’s been known to cause issues occasionally with duplicate peer dependencies, so be warned.
