[chuck-users] ChucK with RESTful APIs

Hi Dave,

I’d be curious about this as well.

So far I have always used external Python scripts to get the data and transform it before using either arguments, file or Open Sound Control (OSC) to contact ChucK. Occasionally I’ve written rules within ChucK to then map or create the sound.

All best,

Hi all,

I'm new to ChucK and looking for a little advice. I'm currently working on a "podcast" bot which will generate new sounds/episodes nightly. I currently have a Ruby script organizing everything and handling the logistics of uploading the MP3 and updating the RSS feed. It runs asynchronously on a Raspberry Pi (Cron > Ruby > Chuck).

Anyhow, I'd eventually like this little guy to be able to reach out on the web and have its sounds influenced by data it finds. So I was wondering if you all had any suggestions pulling things in from REST APIs like Twitter or news feeds or whatever. Is there a function for this in ChucK? Or would it be better to handle this stuff in Ruby and pass it to ChucK via a temporary text file or runtime arguments or something?
