Local Snowboy Wake Word Creator

Hi, all. I was recently directed at a fork of snowboy, a wake word system whose online component is now shut down.

Fortunately, this fork included the ability to create new wake words locally! To make this easier for people to use, I’ve wrapped it up in a Docker image with a web interface.

If you’d like to give it a try, just run:

$ docker run -it -p 8000:8000 rhasspy/snowboy-seasalt

and then visit http://localhost:8000 to create your own .pmdl files locally. Snowboy is supported by many different voice assistants, including my own (Rhasspy).

Note: This will not run on a Raspberry Pi because the pre-compiled libraries only exist for x86_64 and source code is not available.
