A Python MPD client library

Project Description

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.txt for more information)

The following features were added:

  • Python 3 support (but you need at least Python 2.6)
  • support for the upcoming 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)
  • configureable timeouts
  • 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 git://github.com/Mic92/python-mpd2.git

Getting the latest release

The latest stable release of python-mpd2 can be found on PyPI

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:

See INSTALL.rst

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.

Testing

Just run:

$ 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

Building Documentation

Install Sphinx:

$ easy_install -U Sphinx

Change to the source directory an 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

Contacting the author

Just contact me (Mic92) on Github or via email (joerg@higgsboson.tk).

Usually I hang around on Jabber in the channel ist@higgsboson.tk
