Smart playlist creation for mpd

Project Description

A smart playlist generator for MPD written in python.


Using pip

$ pip install smarty

Using easy_install

$ easy_install smarty


In default configuration, smarty will try to use $MPD_HOST (environment variable) and port 6600. If $MPD_HOST is not set, it will use localhost.

usage: smarty [-h] [-i <ip>] [-p <port>] [--maxnum <num>] [--dist <num>]
                [--norepeat] [-v] [--exclude <genre> [<genre> ...]]

Smart playlist generator written in python.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -i <ip>, --ip <ip>    IP address of mpd server
  -p <port>, --port <port>
                        Port mpd server is listening on
  --maxnum <num>        Maximal number of songs in playlist
  --dist <num>          Add new song if only <x> songs are left to play in current playlist
  --norepeat            Don't add songs which are already in playlist.
  -v, --verbose         Print information about running process
  --exclude <genre> [<genre> ...]
                        Never add these genres to playlist


Smarty could be used like this

smarty --norepeat --maxnum 3000 --verbose --exclude Comedy

This would only add songs which are not already in the current playlist, allow a maximum number of 3000 songs (deletes from the beginning if that number is exceeded). It will furthermore display the genre of each added song and not add the genre ‘Comedy’.
