Streaming Audio Player app develop by Angular

If you want to making a realtime angular application. I give A Streaming Audio Player application tutorial. I think you will be very enjoy this tutorials.


This app develop with JavaScript technology. here you can manage JavaScript Audio object and Angular Material using here for UI(User Interface). From ui we can managed Audio States.


When you will be start any angular project first you need NodeJS Environment in your system. After then you need Angular Cli(Command Line Interface).

npm install -g @angular/cli
Code language: CSS (css)

If you are using Linux or Mac OS System then you will be write sudo before the command.

Application Project Creation:

Now we need to create a Project Scaffolding.

ng new AudioProject
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

After then getting Two questions.

  1. Would you like to add Angular routing? (y/N): You can input N (no) as you are going to use Angular Routing in the app.
  2. Which stylesheet format would you like to use? (Use arrow keys): Select SCSS from the options given.

Running The Project

First need to go project folder cd AudioProject using this command. Then we will be run our basic application npm start using this command. After then you will get default interface on your browser using http://localhost:4200 this URL address.

Installing Angular Material UI

If project works fine. then we need to install angular material dependancy in our project.

ng add @angular/material
Code language: CSS (css)

after this command you will be get these questions.

  1. Choose a pre-built theme name, or “custom” for a custom theme: Choose Indigo/Pink
  2. Set up browser animations for Angular Material? (Y/n): you can input y (yes) again because you will need animation.

Here we need another dependency  moment.js to manipulate dates and times. Install it via npm:

npm install --save moment

Audio Player UI creates by Angular Material

In this section, you will design the UI of the application. In the end, your application will look like this:

First need to be Add Material Modules in app.module.ts. Follow The Procedure first we need another module called material.module.ts. Use this commend

ng generate module material --flat
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

–flat flag is important for non directory module creation. then write the code:

Go to SRC folder and then open app folder and Write this codes in


import { NgModule } from '@angular/core'; import { MatButtonModule } from '@angular/material/button'; import { MatListModule } from '@angular/material/list'; import { MatSliderModule } from '@angular/material/slider'; import { MatIconModule } from '@angular/material/icon'; import { MatToolbarModule } from '@angular/material/toolbar'; import { MatCardModule } from '@angular/material/card'; const modules = [ MatButtonModule, MatListModule, MatSliderModule, MatIconModule, MatToolbarModule, MatCardModule ]; @NgModule({ imports: modules, exports: modules }) export class MaterialModule { }
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)


<div class="container"> <mat-toolbar color="primary" class="main-toolbar"> <span>Personal Radio</span> </mat-toolbar> <div class="content"> <div class="logo"> <img src="assets/image1.jpg" alt="Shibaji Debnath" width="260px"> </div> <mat-list color="primary"> <h3 mat-subheader="">Playlist</h3> <div class="song-list"> <mat-list-item *ngfor="let file of files; let i = index" (click)="openFile(file, i)"> <mat-icon color="primary" mat-list-icon="">music_note</mat-icon> <h4 mat-line="">{{ }}</h4> <h5 mat-line="">by {{ file.artist }}</h5> <mat-icon color="primary" *ngif="currentFile.index === i &amp;&amp; !state?.error">volume_up</mat-icon> <h6 *ngif="currentFile.index === i &amp;&amp; state?.error">ERROR</h6> <mat-divider></mat-divider> </mat-list-item> </div> </mat-list> </div> <div class="spacer"></div> <div class="media-footer"> <mat-toolbar color="primary"> <mat-toolbar-row> {{ state?.readableCurrentTime }} <mat-slider class="time-slider" min="0" [max]="state?.duration" step="1" [value]="state?.currentTime" (input)="onSliderChangeEnd($event)" [disabled]="state?.error || currentFile.index === undefined"></mat-slider> {{ state?.readableDuration }} </mat-toolbar-row> <mat-toolbar-row cols="2" class="media-action-bar"> <button mat-button="" [disabled]="isFirstPlaying()" (click)="previous()"> <mat-icon mat-list-icon="">skip_previous</mat-icon> </button> <button mat-button="" (click)="play()" [disabled]="state?.error" *ngif="!state?.playing"> <mat-icon mat-list-icon="">play_circle_filled</mat-icon> </button> <button mat-button="" (click)="pause()" *ngif="state?.playing"> <mat-icon mat-list-icon="">pause</mat-icon> </button> <button mat-button="" [disabled]="isLastPlaying()" (click)="next()"> <mat-icon mat-list-icon="">skip_next</mat-icon> </button> <span class="spacer"></span> <mat-icon>volume_up</mat-icon> <mat-slider class="time-slider" min="0" max="1" step="0.01" [value]="state?.volume" (input)="onVolumeChange($event)"></mat-slider> </mat-toolbar-row> </mat-toolbar> </div> </div>

.container { .main-toolbar { justify-content: center; .spacer { flex: 1 1 auto; } .toolbar-btn { font-size: 16px; margin-right: 5px; cursor: pointer; } } .content { .logo { margin: 0.5rem; text-align: center; font-size: 24px; color: #0471d6; img{ background-color: #0471d6; padding: .5rem; } .mat-icon { height: 160px !important; width: 160px !important; font-size: 160px !important; } } .song-list{ height: 200px; overflow: scroll; } } .media-footer { position: fixed; bottom: 0; width: 100%; .spacer { width: 200%; } .time-slider { width: 100% !important; margin-left: 20px; margin-right: 20px; } .media-action-bar { width: 100%; padding: 2.5rem; justify-content: center; .mat-icon { height: 48px !important; width: 48px !important; font-size: 48px !important; } } } }
Code language: PHP (php)

After writing this codes we need to be create AudioService class using angular command

ng generate service services/audio

Here we are creating HtmlAudio object and Manipulate with RXJS classes and functions. See The codes.

Here we need moment js. This is a third party library for Time Format support. so it need to be install from npm server.

npm install moment --save


import { Injectable } from '@angular/core'; import { Observable, BehaviorSubject, Subject } from "rxjs"; import { takeUntil } from "rxjs/operators"; import * as moment from "moment"; import { StreamState } from '../interfaces/stream-state'; @Injectable({ providedIn: 'root' }) export class AudioService { private state: StreamState = { playing: false, readableCurrentTime: '', readableDuration: '', duration: undefined, currentTime: undefined, volume: 0.5, canplay: false, error: false, }; private stop$ = new Subject(); private audioObj = new Audio(); audioEvents = [ "ended", "error", "play", "playing", "pause", "timeupdate", "canplay", "loadedmetadata", "loadstart" ]; private stateChange: BehaviorSubject<streamstate> = new BehaviorSubject( this.state ); constructor() { } private updateStateEvents(event: Event): void { switch (event.type) { case "canplay": this.state.duration = this.audioObj.duration; this.state.readableDuration = this.formatTime(this.state.duration); this.state.canplay = true; break; case "playing": this.state.playing = true; break; case "pause": this.state.playing = false; break; case "timeupdate": this.state.currentTime = this.audioObj.currentTime; this.state.readableCurrentTime = this.formatTime( this.state.currentTime ); break; case "error": this.resetState(); this.state.error = true; break; }; } private resetState() { this.state = { playing: false, readableCurrentTime: '', readableDuration: '', duration: undefined, currentTime: undefined, volume: 0.5, canplay: false, error: false }; } getState(): Observable<streamstate> { return this.stateChange.asObservable(); } private streamObservable(url) { return new Observable(observer =&gt; { // Play audio this.audioObj.src = url; this.audioObj.load();; const handler = (event: Event) =&gt; { this.updateStateEvents(event);; }; this.addEvents(this.audioObj, this.audioEvents, handler); return () =&gt; { // Stop Playing this.audioObj.pause(); this.audioObj.currentTime = 0; // remove event listeners this.removeEvents(this.audioObj, this.audioEvents, handler); // reset state this.resetState(); }; }); } private addEvents(obj, events, handler) { events.forEach(event =&gt; { obj.addEventListener(event, handler); }); } private removeEvents(obj, events, handler) { events.forEach(event =&gt; { obj.removeEventListener(event, handler); }); } playStream(url) { return this.streamObservable(url).pipe(takeUntil(this.stop$)); } play() {; } pause() { this.audioObj.pause(); } stop() { this.stop$.next(); } seekTo(seconds) { this.audioObj.currentTime = seconds; } setVolume(volume) { this.audioObj.volume = volume; } formatTime(time: number, format: string = "HH:mm:ss") { const momentTime = time * 1000; return moment.utc(momentTime).format(format); } }
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

Finally we need Cloud Audio list. So we need CloudService class. So we will be use this angular command.

ng generate service services/cloud


import { Injectable } from '@angular/core'; import { of } from "rxjs"; @Injectable({ providedIn: 'root' }) export class CloudService { files: any = [ // tslint:disable-next-line: max-line-length { url:"", name: "How to improve yourself", artist: "Shibaji Debnath" }, { url:"", name:"You will be successfull. If you ask yourself 'Why'", artist: "Shibaji Debnath", }, { url:"", name: "Build your career as you think. Question youself 'How'", artist: "Shibaji Debnath" } ]; constructor() { } getFiles() { return of(this.files); } }
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

After writing all these codes. open assets folder there put image1.jpg named picture. Then Finally Run the the development server using

npm start
