Libresonic on Centos 7 with SSL

June 7th, 2017

I’ve been a happy iTunes Match user since the service was introduced. I have a large music collection and I don’t always want to dedicate the required amount of iPhone and computer storage to keeping it available all the time on all my devices. iTunes Match lets Apple deal with storing the whole thing and allows me to just download what I want on a given device or stream music I own to any device I’d like. It’s been $25/year well spent.

That being said, with streaming music plans taking over the market, I can’t imagine Apple’s going to want to offer this service forever, plus I prefer to self-host as much of my digital needs as possible. Finding a way to replicate these features though has proven a bit tough. There were a few projects that would allow me to stream my music but I don’t want to use up my whole data plan streaming songs over and over again or have my music drop out every time I’m in a dead zone. Thankfully, I found Libresonic, which in concert with an app on my iPhone checks a lot of these boxes.
