Headless mode

The app currently does not support running in headless mode, adding this would make the app more useful when using an embedded device, a raspberry pi etc. This would also reduce resource usage because of the electron frontend the app uses and users would not have to be careful to not close audiorelay when closing windows they do not need.
This can be accomplished by simply having a arguement such as “–headless” or “-headless” and can be automatically started on boot up using a Systemd service on linux (guide: https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-create-systemd-service-unit-in-linux), you can make it start up automatically on windows by putting a shortcut of the exe with the arguement “–headless” in ‘C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp’, I am not sure how to do this in Mac OS.

Thanks for the suggestion!

It’s already tracked here though.

For reference, you can minimize the app to the tray on Windows.
And it runs on a JVM using Compose for the GUI, there’s no Electron.

It looked like electron so I just guessed, my bad
