This is a documentation of the DBus interface. Mostly useful for creating scripts for interacting with Murmur.

net.sourceforge.mumble.Meta

  • start

input parameters:
  • [int] server_id The specific server

receive the whole configuration of a server
input parameters:
  • [int] server_id
output parameters:

input parameters:
  • [int] server_id
  • [string] key
  • [string] value
  • setSuperUserPassword
set the superuser password on a specific server
input parameters:
  • [int] server_id
  • [string] password
  • rotateLogs
rotate the logs
  • getLog
get the log of a specific server in a specific time frame
input parameters:
  • [int] server_id
  • [int] min_seconds

  • quit
shutdown the server

Server-specific methods

getPlayers

  • input:nothing
  • returns a list of PlayerInfoExtended(see below)

getChannels

  • input:nothing
  • returns a list of ChannelInfo(idem)

getACL

  • input:chan identifier(int)
  • returns a list containing [a list of ACLInfo, a list of GroupInfo, a boolean for inherit]

setACL (todo)

getBans

  • nothing
  • list of BanInfo

setBans

  • list of BanInfo
  • nothing

getPlayerState

  • player session id(unsigned int) (warning, unsigned ints are special, see below)
  • PlayerInfo

setPlayerState

  • PlayerInfo
  • nothing

getPlayerNames

  • list of session id(unsigned ints) (warning, same as above)
  • list of names(unicode strings)

getPlayerIds

  • list of names(strs on unicode strs)
  • list of IDs(ints(regular ones))

addChannel

  • name(str or unicode str) , parent's id(int)
  • id of the new chan(int)

removeChannel

  • chan id(int)
  • nothing

setChannelState

  • ChannelInfo
  • nothing

kickPlayer

  • session id(unsigned int) , reason(str or unicode str)
  • nothing

Warning

unsigned ints are a bit strange. They look like longs when Python reads them (1786L for instance) but Python must transform them before sending them ot dbus.)

>>>import dbus
>>>egg=178L
>>>spam = dbus.UInt32(egg)  #may vary depending on your plateform
and now, spam is a dBus unsigned int and is ready to be sent

Structures (e.g. omagad, what is PlayerInfo ???)

  • PlayerInfo is a tuple (static list) containing (dont forget to transform session before sending it):
(session:long, mute:bool, deaf:bool, suppressed:bool, selfMute:bool, selfDeaf:bool, channel:int)
  • PlayerInfoExtended is a tuple (static list) containing (you just receive it with getPlayerState, you never have to send one)(notice that the 7 first are exactly the same as PlayerInfo: (session:long, mute:bool, deaf:bool, suppressed:bool, selfMute:bool, selfDeaf:bool, channel:int, id:int, name:unicode str, onlinesecs:int, bytespersecond:int))
  • ChannelInfo is a tuple containing:
(id:int, name:str, parent:int, links:list of ints)
  • GroupInfo:
(name:str, inherited:bool, inherit:bool, inheritable:bool, add:list, remove:list, members:list)
  • ACLInfo:
(applyThere:bool, applySubs:bool, inherited:bool, id:int, group:str, allow:long, deny:long)
  • BanInfo:
(address:long, bits:int)

Implementation

To access the server interface, proceed as following:

>>>import dbus
>>>bus = dbus.SystemBus() # assuming that you are using a system bus
>>>server = bus.get_object('net.sourceforge.mumble.murmur', '/1') # assuming that you want to control the server number 1
>>> # to use methods, do:
>>>server.method(args)
