@xerus I see your point, that's a bit misleading. It's only required on the OBS-host system, not on the client that's running obs-cli.

@muesli in the repo it says "It requires the obs-websocket plugin to be installed on your system" - then you should clarify that there as well.

@xerus I have been considering adding obs-websocket as a dependency, but came to the conclusion it's not completely appropriate: it's not a direct dependency of obs-cli and you can still connect to other hosts running OBS without it just fine.

It should probably be a suggested dependency though.

@muesli, thanks for your answer. I asked laefak to rename his utility ( Let's see what he decides.

@Ashark This is unfortunate, but since leafac was even aware of my prior work (see I would suggest asking them to come up with a different name first, instead of putting this burden on me.

They also don't have quite the same purpose in my view. I would argue that my tool is geared towards OBS users, whereas leafac's version is better suited for developers.

Hi muesli. I see, you are an author of this utility. The problem is that there is also competing utility by laefac (see here: It is also linked from the obs-websocket readme (

I checked that your utility had a first release earlier than laefac's. But still, seems like his' is more acknowledged and more capable than this one (in terms of possible requests that I needed). With all respect to your work.

It is confusing to the end users that these utilities have same purpose, same name, but are actually different. Could you rename your utility to for example, obs-ctl or something?

I wanted to use this aur name (obs-cli) for laefac's variant. For now, I think I will create obs-cli-laefac, but maybe I move it instead of current one? Thanks.

Hey, this looks nice :) but you should add a dependency on obs-websocket so it works properly without having to look up your repo.
