Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that would like a more relaxing way to be woken in the morning, rather than listening to their bleeping alarm clock. Might be interested in a new DIY Raspberry Pi Spotify alarm clock which has been created by George Cushen.
George explains more about the project and what you will require in the way of components to create the alarm clock. All the code required to create the Raspberry Pi alarm clock has been kindly uploaded to the GitHub website for your convenience.
Hate your boring alarm clock? Here’s how to wake up to your favourite Spotify playlist using your Raspberry Pi or Ubuntu Linux PC/HTPC. To get started, you will need either a Raspberry Pi or Ubuntu Linux computer and some speakers that can connect via standard jack cable, USB, or wirelessly. Preferably, you will already be running a lightweight Ubuntu based operating system on your Pi, such as Ubuntu Mate, since this comes with the required Pulse Audio sound system pre-installed. Otherwise, in the case of Raspbian Jessie, you will need to install the Pulse Audio software.
Next, let’s connect your speakers up to the audio output of the Raspberry Pi (circled in the image below), or alternatively configure a wireless or USB speaker system. If you are using a laptop, desktop, or home theatre PC for the alarm, you can just use your integrated speaker system, but will obviously need to leave your computer on overnight so that the alarm can activate.
