Listen to your Google Play Music/Soundcloud library from your terminal.

Project description

Listen to your Google Play Music and Soundcloud library from your terminal.


  • Python 3.5+
  • mpv


pip install melomaniac

You will also need to install mpv to actually play the songs.


To launch the player, just do:

melomaniac listen gmusic


melomaniac listen soundcloud

If this is the first time using a specific backend, Melomaniac will ask you a few pieces of information:

  • Gmusic: username and password. There is no way around it. If you have 2FA activated for you account you must create an application specific password.
  • Soundcloud: client_id, client_secret, username and password. You need to acquire a client credential for your application, in order for Melomaniac to work. Both username and password will only be used once to retrieve API tokens and will never be stored.

The configuration is stored in ~/.melomaniac/config.yml.

### Commands

  • Access an element (right or enter)
  • Navigate a list (up/down)
  • Play a song (enter)
  • Pause/Resume a song (space)
  • Forward/Rewind (f/r)
  • Quit (q)
