Build Status


use Audio::Playlist::JSPF;

my $playlist = Audio::Playlist::JSPF.from-json($some-json);

say "Playing from { $playlist.title }";

for $playlist.track -> $track {
    if $track.location.elems {
       say "Playing track { $track.title } by { $track.creator }";
       # TYpically if there is more than one location we might
       # choose the most suitable one.
       my $track-uri = $track.location.first; 
       # Do something with the track


This is a JSON representation of XSPF which is a format for sharing media playlists.

Because this does the role L the objects can be created directly from and serialised to JSON via the C and C methods that role provides.

Currently there doesn't seem to be much software using this format for playlists but JSON is convenient for a variety of reasons.


Assuming you have a working Rakudo installation you should be able to install this with zef :

# From the source directory

zef install .

# Remote installation

zef install Audio::Playlist::JSPF
