Setting up Snapcast on Debian 12 Bookworm

Snapcast is an open-source project that allows you to play audio into multiple rooms from one source, similar to a Sonos speaker system. In this article, I go through the steps to set it up on a Debian 12 (bookworm) server. How it works Snapcast consists of two executables, snapserver and snapcast. Snapserver collects audio from various sources, then snapclient plays that audio into the world. Snapserver synchronizes each snapclient to play audio simultaneously with any others on the network.

A list of locations I have recalled vividly in the last week, without prompting, explanation, or remorse

1. A parking lot near the highway between a restaurant and a jazz club in Cleveland OH - May 2011 Some now-forgotten special occasion, or maybe just Sunday brunch, has brought my family to this chilly restaurant parking lot near the highway that separates the city from Lake Erie. We’re saying a long goodbye, trying not to shiver in the breeze coming off the lake while the cars rush by in the distance.

A New Start

After several years of telling myself that I’d update my website both to look more professional and to be easier to update, I have finally done it. Welcome! This new website uses the static site generator Hugo, which has many powerful features that I will never need (but if I ever want to publish an RSS feed, I can do it!). However, it is fast and the structure and workflow make more sense to me than other generators I have used, so I will stick with it.
