Change Log

1.0 2016 04 08

  • Initial Release, Basic support for left, right, up, down, menu, play, select and text entry.

Install Instructions

1. NitoTV_Take_4#Install_Instructions

2. Install AirMagic from featured list

3. nitoTV-> Settings -> Respring (if it doesn't work after this, try reboot instead)

Additional Notes

If you have not changed your hostname http://apple-tv.local from any web browser on any device on the same network as your AppleTV should take you to a web control page.

There are also native iOS, Mac applications and Untested Alpha Windows client available to control AirMagic server, i you don't want to install these applications and cannot get connections to work i recommend Bonjour Browser, there you can search for _airmagic._tcp. to get the host name or IP address for the AppleTV (and to verify the airmagic server is working properly)

API Information

Due to the fact AirMagic is just a basic web server, pretty much anything that can send HTTP requests can be a client for AIrMagic. In this current incarnation there are only 3 base commands that do anything for AirMagic at the moment.

remoteCommand

accepts any of the following. ie http://apple-tv.local/remoteCommand=left

left
right
up
down
menu
select
selectH (like clicking and holding main remote selection button)
play

enterText

send a percent encoding escaped string to enter it into any visible text field.

ie http://apple-tv.local/enterText=search

will put the string "search" in any visible text field.

Client Downloads

If you are jailbroken you an add the nitosoft beta repo: http://nitosoft.com/beta2 to custom sources Cydia and then install com.nito.airmagicclient

Source Code

Currently only the windows client is open source, the mac and iOS ones to follow soonish. AirMagic itself is still under consideration for open source, I'm not certain if I'm going to do that yet or not.
