Using the Raspberry Pi as an AirPlay server


A Shairport system on the Raspberry Pi is an economical way to retrofit classic equipment sitting in your living room. Because the code is no longer maintained, you might have some issues with getting it to work, depending on when you read this article. As Shairport developer James Laird states at the Shairport GitHub page, "… there are a great many forks and ports to choose from now, many of which are of a very high quality and well maintained." Examples of Shairport forks include shairport-sync [6] and libshairport [7], a version of Shairport implemented as a library by the XBMC developers.
