So i'm relatively new to python, but have a moderate amount of matlab programming experience, so not a complete newbie to programming. I was wondering if this idea would be possible in Pythonista on an iPad.
So a local talkback radio station uploads 15min increment mp3 files of their show each day. I have currently got a python script running on my mac which loops through a time vector and downloads 24 individual 15min mp3 files and then uses the shell concatenate command to merge them into one single mp3 file. I then manually copy this mp3 file over to my iPone and change it's metadata to be a podcast, so I can listen to it in the iPhone podcast player.
My idea for a simple pythonista iPhone/iPad app was to have a basic GUI with a button, that when clicked downloads all of the mp3 files and then merges them into a single file. I would then like to have a play/pause button, and a 30second skip forward and 15second skip back button to allow for easy skipping over advertisements.
Does this sound achievable to adapt my current mac script to run on an iPad with Pythonista? From what I can tell so far, mp3/music playback is not too easy under pythonista.
Thanks for any thoughts!
Thanks for the response.
Ok, that makes sense.
Perhaps the Nio module (https://www.pyngl.ucar.edu/Nio.shtml) could be added into the built-in modules as it supports a number of file types.
I do agree that it would only be of interest for very few people, but I guess it does not hurt to ask.
Is there any way possible to get the Pygrib module (https://code.google.com/p/pygrib/) working in Pythonista?
Or if possible, can I make a feature request to have it added to Pythonista?
Being able to use Pygrib would open up a lot of possibilities to create cool weather forecasting type scripts.
