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 itmes
  • runs on Android! (see instructions)

Web client:

  • there is currently no web client :(


  • Python 3.6
  • the dependencies manager Poetry
  • the player mpv

They should be available for most of the plateforms.


pip install escarpolette
# generate a random secret key
echo "SECRET_KEY = '$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'a-zA-Z0-9' | fold -w 32 | head -n 1)'" > config.cfg


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

# dependencies
pkg install python python-dev clang
# 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
