This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 1,000,000+ packages pre-installed, including
node-red-contrib-apple-tv with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
node-red-contrib-apple-tv lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

Relatively straightforward, simply drag a ATV input onto the canvas, configure the Apple TV (pairing), and you're ready to roll.
The library this node wraps has some rather heavy dependencies, and so may take some time to install. Please refer to node-appletv for more information about its package and dependencies.
Installation on RPi3 requires a few extra packages depending on your platform. If you've already installed the node-red package, you'll need to install the below and run npm install again. I've only tested this library on Raspbian Stretch Lite, so some of these packages may already exist in a fuller installation.
sudo apt-get install libtool autoconf build-essential libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev
You'll also need to install openssl which according to this link is best compiled from source.
git clone git://git.openssl.org/openssl.git cd openssl ./config make make test sudo make install
If you're having trouble with ed25519, mdns, or sodium, re-install them in the root folder of your node-red, ensuring you've installed all the packages listed above.
A very simple node that takes the following commands as a string on msg.payload
N.b. The Apple TV doesn't have native volume control, rather it outputs maximum volume and provides (via it's remote) a means to change the volume on the attached receiver (TV or AV receiver). This means there is no way at present to programatically change the volume. If you have a solution, please let me know!
