Control mpd with the OS X media keys.

Project description

Control mpd with the OS X media keys.


To install osxmpdkeys with pip, use:

$ pip install osxmpdkeys


In the simplest case, just run mpdkeys. The default mpd host address is localhost:6600.

usage: mpdkeys [-h] [--host HOST] [--port PORT]

optional arguments:
--host HOST  mpd host address
--port PORT  mpd host port

If you want to have mpdkeys start automatically upon login, you can create a LaunchAgent like so:

$ cat <<EOF> ~/Library/LaunchAgents/com.github.pushrax.osxmpdkeys.plist

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

Next time you log in, launchd will pick up the configuration automatically.
