MurmurCL ist a basic console interface to some of the functionality the murmur server exposes via the Ice RPC mechanism.
Note: As MurmurCL was mainly written for testing purposes it has some limits and usability issues.
Following is a list of the features included in the script as of writing this:
Adds a virtual server to a mumble instance
Deletes a virtual server from a mumble instance
Lists virtual servers on a mumble instance
Configure servers Sets a config variable on a virtual server
Adds a player to a virtual server
Deletes a player from a virtual server
Lists players registered on a virtual server
Sets a config variable of a user on a virtual server
List channels on a virtual server
Adds a channel to a virtual server
Deletes a channel from a virtual server
Help about the commands with short description and syntax explanation
The help command
If you want to get information about a command the help function is very useful. It can be called with one or zero parameters. If you call it without any parameters it looks like this:
console> ./murmurcl.py help Displays this help usage: help [command] Available commands: ['addchannel', 'listplayers', 'addserver', 'cfgserver', 'listservers', 'listchannels', 'startserver' , 'addplayer', 'cfgplayer', 'delchannel', 'delplayer', 'stopserver', 'delserver']
If you want information about a specific command just use it's name as the paramter for help.
console> ./murmurcl.py help addserver Add a new virtual server to the murmur instance usage: addserver [port]
Setting a default channel
Mumble has some features which are not accessible via the default graphical user interface. One of them is setting a default channels players will join when they connect to the server. This can be done by setting the defaultchannel paramter for a server.
To do this we first have to find out the port of our server, you usually know this but let's say you don't.
console> ./murmurcl.py listservers ================================================== Id Port Running ================================================== 1 64738 True
After that we have to find out the id of the channel you want to set as default.
console> ./murmurcl.py listchannels 64738 ================================================== Id Parent Name ================================================== 0 -1 Root 1 0 A channel
Ok, now we have the id of "A channel", let's make it the new default:
console> ./murmurcl.py cfgserver defaultchannel 1 on 64738 'defaultchannel' set to '1' on server 64738
Now new players will always join "A channel" instead of "Root". Be aware that this doesn't work on clients which choose their default channels themselves.
