README

ears Build Status Build status

ears is a simple library to play sounds and music in Rust.

  • Provides an access to the OpenAL spatialization functionality in a simple way.
  • Accepts a lot of audio formats, thanks to libsndfile.

Building

You need to install OpenAL and libsndfile on your system:

Linux

Fedora:

sudo dnf install openal-soft-devel libsndfile-devel

Debian or Ubuntu:

sudo apt install libopenal-dev libsndfile1-dev

Mac

brew install openal-soft libsndfile

Windows

Install MSYS2 according to the instructions. Be sure to use the default installation folder (i.e. C:\msys32 or C:\msys64), otherwise compiling won't work. Then, run the following in the MSYS2 shell:

pacman -S mingw-w64-x86_64-libsndfile mingw-w64-x86_64-openal

Examples

cargo run --example basic
cargo run --example many_sounds
cargo run --example music
cargo run --example record
cargo run --example simple_player

Functionality

ears provides two ways to play audio files:

  • The Sound class, which represents light sounds who can share a buffer of samples with another Sound.
  • The Music class, which represents bigger sound and can't share sample buffers.
