A Roku channel that "tags" (as in graffiti) its IP address to a server.


IP Tagger

IP Tagger is a test channel for Roku devices. It uses SceneGraph and the BrightScript language.

Getting the project

At git.dlma.com click Download and select Download ZIP or Download TAR.

If you're me, and you want to contribute to the repo, then you can clone it like so:

git clone ssh://$USER@dlma.com/~/git/roku_ip_tagger.git

Building it

Ensure you can sideload a dev channel. Then see the "build_systems" command in ip_tagger.sublime-project to see how the channel is zipped and deployed.

In the components directory, move the file "settings.xml.sample" to "settings.xml" and update its url and auth fields.

It is convenient to set environment variables $ROKU_DEV_TARGET and $DEVPASSWORD in a local file ".env". For example:



Running make will build and deploy if you have $ROKU_DEV_TARGET and $DEVPASSWORD set.


You can automatically make and deploy with each changed file with the following command:

git ls-files | entr -c sh -c 'make all'

VS Code

VS Code can also use the Makefile with VC Code Makefile Tools.

Here's the corresponding server code.

Is it any good?
