New control opportunities

Just wanted to share a little proof of concept of Sinatra + Websockets + Applescript for browser based UI to anything on your Mac.

You need to

sudo gem install thin em-websocket sinatra rb-appscript

or something like that. Then you probably need to have iTunes running, but given these you should be able to run this ruby script, go to http://localhost:5000 in your browser and search for your iTunes music.
I used the well rounded appscript tools to figure out how to control iTunes.
