Since a few days I have a Sonos speaker. I was very impressed with its sound quality. But I was really surprised when I found out that it doesn’t support AirPlay.
Fortunately, there are many Sonos related open source projects out there. Oe of the most helpful one for me is AirSonos. It’s a node.js module that adds AirPlay support to Sonos. But the installation of the correct node.js version, native libraries etc. is not always easy. SonoAir also leverages the sono-java-api for device control.
SonoAir is a JavaFX application that contains all necessary libraries to run AirSonos without installation. In addition it provides controls to adjust speaker volume and led:
Currently, builds for OS X are available. But I plan to provide builds for Linux and Windows as well.
