Getting started

Black candy use docker for simplify deployment, development and test process. So you should install docker and docker-compose first.

Black candy support mp3, m4a, ogg, oga, opus, flac, wma and wav formats now.

Installation

Black candy has built docker images. You can use docker compose to run all services.

First, you should ensure your music files stored under "/media_data"

Then run:

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/aidewoode/black_candy/v1.1.1/docker-compose.yml > docker-compose.yml
$ docker-compose up -d

That's all. Now, you can use initial admin user to login (email: admin@admin.com, password: foobar).

You can also change the docker-compose.yml for your own needs.

Note: When the SECRET_KEY_BASE environment variable is not set, Black candy will generate SECRET_KEY_BASE environment variable every time when service start up. This will cause old sessions invalid, You can set your own SECRET_KEY_BASE environment variable on docker service to avoid it.
