Mumble daemon with controller (think
mpc(1)) written in Rust.
mum is currently only tested on Linux. Windows is planned to use a REPL. macOS should work as-is.
Requirements (package names are for Arch Linux):
- rust (stable, current minimum version is 1.56)
- libnotify (optional, needed in default configuration)
Build and install the latest published version:
$ cargo install mum-cli
You can also build and install from source, for example with
$ cargo install --git https://github.com/mum-rs/mum.git
or using the AUR package.
mum contains optional features that are enabled by default. To compile without them, build with --no-default-features. Features can then be re-enabled separately with --features "FEATURES".
The following features can be specified:
|mum/ogg||ogg sound effects|
Manpages are included as both asciidoc txt-files and already formatted groff-files. They are generated by
$ asciidoctor -b manpage mumctl.txt $ asciidoctor -b manpage mumd.txt $ asciidoctor -b manpage mumdrc.txt
This describes how to connect to a server and join different channels.
$ mumctl --help or the manpages for more information.
Start the daemon by running
mumd. It attaches to the terminal, so if you want
to run it in the background you can detach it from the shell. You could also run
it through e.g. systemd.
Interfacing with the daemon is done through mumctl. Some examples:
$ mumctl connect 127.0.0.1 spock # connect to 127.0.0.1 with username 'spock' $ mumctl channel list ServerRoot -user1 -user2 -user2 Channel2 Channel3 $ mumctl channel connect Channel2
Mostly because it was a fun way of learning a new language. Also:
- Most Mumble clients use a GUI. While GUIs aren't necessarily bad, there should at least exist alternatives where possible.
- Memory, disk and CPU usage. We haven't found a reliable way of testing this yet (suggestions welcome).
