I’m a university teacher and I’m using sonic pi on the raspberry pi on a course that focus on tangible multimedia. The pipeline I was hoping to implement for my students is to boot exclusively to the command line, without loading the desktop, for resource optimisation. In that regard I abandoned Processing for Pi and went instead with Pygame and OMXPlayer that run fine from the command line.
So I was wondering if it there is a way to use sonic pi in the same manner. I think the easiest solution would be to run scsynth server as a background process on boot but my reasoning is that would just enable supercollider and not sonic pi.
So, is it possible? Where can I find more info about this?
