Rhythmbox Custom Playlist Format

This is a Rhythmbox plugin that allows the format of the playlist sidepane to be customized. For example, it can be used to show the genre instead of the artist.


Simply copy the entire directory tree to the Rhythmbox plugins directory. For a local user on a UNIX-like system, this is ~/.local/share/rhythmbox/plugins.


At present the new format is hard-coded into the plugin. Edit rbcpf.py to change it.


Limitations in GTK+ make it impossible to completely deactivate the plugin. After deactiviting the plugin through the API, it is recommended to close and restart Rhythmbox.

This is for Rhythmbox 3.x. For Rhythmbox 2, you will need to change the Loader in rbcpf.plugin from python3 to python. It is also no longer tested on Rhythmbox 2.
