Backstage Blog March 12th, 2012 Announcements Stratus 2 BETA By leemartin

Stratus 2 BETA

Stratus is a jQuery powered SoundCloud player that lives at the bottom (or top) of your website or blog. In version 2, we've rebuilt Stratus from the ground up to include many requested features, a nicer aesthetic, and a much easier installation.

Pumped? Yeh, me too. Here's how to participate in the BETA:

 

Installation

See installation guides for: Wordpress Tumblr Blogger

Installing Stratus is easy. All you need to do is add some code to the head section of your HTML.

First, make sure you have jQuery installed.

Next, include the main Stratus library.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://stratus.sc/stratus.js"></script>

Finally, configure and load the Stratus plugin.

<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function(){
    $('body').stratus(function(){
      links: 'http://soundcloud.com/foofighters/sets/wasting-light'
    });
  });
</script>

That's it! For a list of all configuration options, go here.

 

Feedback

All good BETA tests require good feedback. If you've got a suggestion, found a bug, or deployed the player on your site: Please, let me know @leemartin or at lee@soundcloud.com. We really appreciate the help!

Thanks and happy BETA testing!
