[Feature Request] MPD Connectivity #149
I realize there are other ncurses mpd clients out there, but I feel like they fall short when it comes to their interfaces/navigation.
For example ncmpcpp is a popular choice, but it has some irritating design choices. For one, navigation is done with the arrow keys, which is bothersome. You can configure this, but you have to change it for EVERY view.
I think adding MPD support to cmus would be relatively simple, just a few backend additions and maybe a startup flag to specify an MPD host/password.
Let me know what you think.
cmus is a standalone music player, and is not written with a client-server architecture in mind. Also, it is closely tied to its own tracks database. I don't think adding mode which replaces it with MPD one is a good (or relatively easily implementable) idea.
However, you can probably write a script (or even do it by hand) which adds all music from your MPD database to cmus. This looks like an easiest way of migrating from MPD to cmus to me.
