Help the Python Software Foundation raise $60,000 USD by December 31st!  Building the PSF Q4 Fundraiser

Manage your musical playlist with your friends without starting a war.

Project description


This project provides a server and clients to manage your music playlist when you are hosting a party.

It supports many sites thanks to the awesome project youtube-dl.



  • add items (and play them!)
  • get playlist's items
  • runs on Android! (see instructions)

Web client:

  • there is currently no web client :(


  • Python 3.7
  • the player mpv

They should be available for most of the plateforms.


pip install escarpolette


You will need Termux. Then inside Termux you can install it with:

# dependencies
pkg install python python-dev clang mpv
# escarpolette
pip install escarpolette

Note that while the project can run without wake-lock, acquiring it improve the performance (with a battery trade off).


escarpolette [--config config.cfg] [--host host] [--port port] [--help]

The default configuration should be good for all the usages.


You will need Poetry to manage the dependencies.

Clone the repo and then type poetry install. You can run the app with poetry run python -m escarpolette.
