Description : A command line music player
Draai is a wrapper around mpc, making playing music from the command line more
enjoyable. mpc is a client for MPD, the Music Player Daemon. Using draai,
one can play an audio file (ogg, mp3, whatever your MPD offers), play all
files in a predefined playlist, have a running view with details on current,
past (using tail) and future (using watch) playing songs, skip to the next
The interface is purely command-line. No fancy GUI's whatsoever. Not even
any curses-like interface. It does have fancy zsh tab completion though. If
the command line is your preferred user interface, and don't like to learn
a new set of key bindings, you'll like draai. draai is one of the very few
minimalistic MPD clients.
Draai consists of one zsh shell script, calling mpc.
Next to draai itself, the package installs some extra utilities for dealing
with audio files.
