Web Audio API - passing context to guest Cristiano Belloni 5/24/13 4:02 AM
Hi all,
is there a way to pass the guest page an Audio API context object? It seems taming a context return undefined. Sample example here, tamedContext gets undefined..

(as a total Caja newbie, this is more a way to learn why not and getting the hang of it by trying doing things, so pease be pedantic).

Thanks,
Cristiano.

Caja does not include a taming of the Web Audio API.

There's no reason not to (except that we would have to give the host page a way to control audio input/output access), but it hasn't previously come up on our list of APIs people want.

You could try simply using the available taming membrane controls to allow a context to be passed into the guest — you would have to explicitly mark as safe every part of the API you use. I don't offhand see any reason why that wouldn't work.

In your code, where you do:

  .api({ hostFunction: tamedCajaHostFunc }, { audioContext: tamedContext })

you should instead be doing:

  .api({
      hostFunction: tamedCajaHostFunc,
      audioContext: tamedContext
   })

You need one object literal, not two. :) What happens when you make that fix?

Where's that list? I would gladly add that request :) 
(the final goal is to load throught Caja unsafe plugins in this project of mine: http://kievii.net/k2h.html). I agree that the host page would have a way to control audio source and audioDestination.

How would I do that in practice? Taming the Web Audio api functions inside the context object?

Thanks for pointing out. Guest code gives no more errors, but tamedContext (and consequentially audioContext) is still undefined.

Sounds like a great application for Caja. In particular, since you're sandboxing an audio processing plugin, all you should need to do is *not* grant the .destination property of the audio context, and similarly not grant any way to get the microphone; since the Web Audio API is graph-based and doesn't have any operations like "get nodes connected to this node", that's sufficient to arrange for the needed security!

You could try simply using the available taming membrane controls to allow a context to be passed into the guest — you would have to explicitly mark as safe every part of the API you use. I don't offhand see any reason why that wouldn't work.

Essentially, yes. I don't offhand know where to find good documentation of how to configure the taming membrane for this kind of use — Ihab?
