Ruby-ampache is a really simple command line player for the ampache music server.
You need to have mplayer installed to use ruby-ampache. Mplayer is used for playing music streams.
I've recently changed the way mplayer is invoked as mplayer slave mode is great, but not good to manage playlists.. I'm still testing it right now but it should work far better.
A few options have been added to the menu and most of all it is full of colors now!
Gem can be installed as usual
gem install ruby-ampache
First you have to write a .ruby-ampache file and save it in your $HOME
AMPACHE_HOST="http://path_to_your_ampache_host" AMPACHE_USER="username" AMPACHE_USER_PSW="userpsw" #optional (default is /usr/bin/mplayer) MPLAYER_PATH="/usr/bin/mplayer"
Simply execute ruby-ampache that should be found in you $PATH after installation
This is an alpha version and still has some issues. If you kill the application mplayer will continue to run in background. Also sometimes if mplayer get stucked playing a song the app does the same.
If you found more issues please let me know and I'll try to fix them as soon as possible
fix encoding issues with file metadata retrieved from mplayer
Special thanks goes to the developer of mplayer-ruby gem. I've borrowed a couple of methods from his useful library
