I am trying to run Sonic Pi without the GUI and receiving an error.
> /Applications/Sonic\ Pi.app/server/ruby/bin/sonic-pi-server.rb
uninitialized constant FFI::Platform::CPU (NameError)
I’ve tried a couple of different versions of Ruby.
Any help would be appreciated.
Sonic Pi is not supported running without the gui, but it is possible to use a “virtual” gui which does let it run. See this article here
I 've seen stuff like
sonic-pi-tool and the emacs plugin that just seem to call server directly and thought I could do the same.
Pretty sure something in my environment causing the problem.
mainwindow.cpp I discovered that SonicPi bundles its own Ruby.
If I execute the server using the bundled Ruby, problem disappears:
/Applications/Sonic Pi.app/app/server/native/ruby/bin/ruby /Applications/Sonic Pi.app/app/server/ruby/bin/sonic-pi-server.rb
