Mopidy Web client extension for mobile devices
Mopidy Mobile aims to be a simple, easy to use remote that lets you fully control a Mopidy music server from your mobile device. It is available as a Web client extension and a hybrid app for Android version 4.4 and higher. Users of older Android versions may still access the Web extension using Google’s Chrome browser. On Apple devices, the Web client should work with iOS 7 or higher.
In a nutshell, Mopidy Mobile lets you
- Browse and search your entire Mopidy music library.
- Search within selected directories only.
- Edit the tracks in the current tracklist.
- Create and edit playlists (requires Mopidy server v1.x).
- Download cover art from selected online resources.
Mopidy Mobile’s user interface comes with both light and dark themes to match your mood, and so far has been translated to English, German, Spanish and Catalan. Last but not least, it also features a beloved 80’s arcade game character icon to represent Mopidy’s consume mode.
The Web extension can be installed from PyPi by running:
pip install Mopidy-Mobile
Note that the Web client is designed to be added to your home screen, so it is launched in full-screen “app mode”. In fact, the only major difference between the Web client and the hybrid app is that the app will let you manage multiple Mopidy server instances. Other than that, they are functionally equivalent. If you don’t know how to add a Web application to your home screen, there are plenty of instructions available online for both Android and iOS.
The following configuration values are available for the Web extension:
- mobile/enabled: Whether the Mopidy Mobile Web extension should be enabled. Defaults to true.
- mobile/title: The Web application’s title, which will also be displayed when added to your home screen. The variables $hostname and $port can be used in the title. Defaults to Mopidy Mobile on $hostname.
- mobile/ws_url: The WebSocket URL used to connect to your Mopidy server. Set this if Mopidy’s WebSocket is not available at its default path /mopidy/ws/, for example when using a reverse proxy.
