Sounds - library of existing or importing new
I have looked through documentation and websites but cannot find a comprehensive list of sounds available through the
soundmodule or how to import custom sounds. I found the list of sounds available in omz Editorial, and it seems these are available in Pythonista as well. The Drum bonus example makes it seem like there are others.
In multiple places the documentation references a '+' option for adding sounds and images, but this does not appear for me.
Pythonista Version 1.5
iPhone 5S with iOS 7.1.2
The + button didn't fit on the small iPhone screen, so this option is "hidden" in the copy/paste menu there. Just tap and hold the text cursor until the menu appears, and select "Insert..." (this only appears if no text is selected).
As for importing sounds – there isn't an official way to do this right now, but it's possible to simply put sound files (in a supported format) into your script's folder and then call something like
sound.play_effect('my_effect.caf')(you need to include the file extension, otherwise it'll look for built-in sound effects).
To get the sound file there, you could write a script that downloads it from the web, or you could transfer files from your Mac/PC using something like DiskAid.
Example script that downloads and plays .mp3 files from the web:
Great, thanks so much! These cover exactly what I was looking for.
