A Python MPD client library
python-mpd2 is a Python library which provides a client interface for the Music Player Daemon.
Difference with python-mpd
python-mpd2 is a fork of python-mpd. While 0.4.x was backwards compatible with python-mpd, starting with 0.5 provides enhanced features which are NOT backward compatibles with the original python-mpd package (see Porting Guide for more information).
The following features were added:
Python 3 support (but you need at least Python 3.6)
support for the client-to-client protocol
support for new commands from MPD (seekcur, prio, prioid, config, searchadd, searchaddpl, listfiles, rangeid, addtagid, cleartagid, mount, umount, listmounts, listneighbors)
remove deprecated commands (volume)
explicitly declared MPD commands (which is handy when using for example IPython)
a test suite
API documentation to add new commands (see Future Compatible)
support for Unicode strings in all commands (optionally in python2, default in python3 - see Unicode Handling)
support for logging
improved support for sticker
improved support for ranges
Getting the latest source code
If you would like to use the latest source code, you can grab a copy of the development version from Git by running the command:
$ git clone https://github.com/Mic92/python-mpd2.git
Getting the latest release
The latest stable release of python-mpd2 can be found on PyPI
$ pip install python-mpd2
Installation in Linux/BSD distributions
Until Linux distributions adapt this package, here are some ready to use packages to test your applications:
Installing from source
To install python-mpd2 from source, simply run the command:
$ python setup.py install
You can use the –help switch to setup.py for a complete list of commands and their options. See the Installing Python Modules document for more details.
$ python setup.py test
This will install Tox. Tox will take care of testing against all the supported Python versions (at least available) on our computer, with the required dependencies
If you have nix, you can also use the provided default.nix to bring all supported python versions in scope using nix-shell. In that case run tox directly instead of using setup.py:
$ nix-shell --command 'tox'
$ easy_install -U Sphinx
Change to the source directory and run:
$ python ./setup.py build_sphinx
The command reference is generated from the official mpd protocol documentation. In order to update it, install python-lxml and run the following command:
$ python ./doc/generate_command_reference.py > ./doc/topics/commands.rst
