MPD Controller

  • Is anybody else out there interested in creating an MPD controller for the MM?

    I have couple raspi-PIs around the house with HiFi Berrys on them and use them as syncronized audio (think Sonos but less expensive) using forked-daapd as an Airplay Server and shairport-sync as clients along with some inexpensive actual Airplay speakers.

    Anyways… forked-daapd is able to be controlled using mpd commands and I was thinking it would be nice to use the MM to control the playing audio (web radio, local playlists, volume, etc.) I see that there is a npm called komponist that seems to have all the bits to control MPD but I’m not really sure where to start. If someone else was also interessted in this perhaps we could work together to figure it out.

    Let me know if you’re interested.

  • If you are still interested, i just published a simple mpd client for magic mirror.
