Creating an Internet radio station

Although the previous example had no practical applications, it introduced most of the concepts needed to make something useful.

The piMusic interface

The aim is to develop a site to play music stored on your Raspberry Pi from anywhere.

$ mkdir -p ~/piMusic/static/music
$ mkdir ~/piMusic/templates
$ cd ~/piMusic/templates
