CHIRP Radio Developer Guide

CHIRP is a non-profit organization that runs a community radio station in Chicago focused on new music and the arts. This is the source code for some internal applications we are building.

These are internal tools used in the daily operation of our station. In particular, this is not meant to be a turnkey system for running a radio station. Many things about this code are CHIRP-specific. However, all code is open source and we may be able to provide guidance to anyone wishing to generalize the apps and modules for other uses, just ask.

We use Google App Engine and Django as the platform for these applications.


There is a hosted API to get CHIRP data for mobile apps.


Feel free to connect and ask questions on the CHIRP Dev mailing list.
