Headless option? #509

Is there any possibility planned or already implemented that I can use tizonia in headless mode?
My workflow to describe it better: I'm using dwm and I wrote a simple bash script to search through my local music files with dmenu and then play them with mpd/mpc.
My idea is to search also for a song/album/artist in tizonia/spotify and then play the result with tizonia and display the current song info in my status bar.

Or do I just have to wait for #488, #438 and a headless option?

Hi!, thanks for the interest in this feature.

It is correct, #488 is pretty much up to date on the current status. I.e. a proper RPC mechanism is currently the number 2 priority in my personal list, right after Pandora. I need to update the Roadmap section in to make this more clear.

Actually, it may be possible to get what you need using the existing MPRIS implementation. The crash reported in #433 got fixed in the last release, but still, the song metadata is not being delivered via the D-BUS interface, if I recall correctly. I'll verify tomorrow and if it is still the case, I will create a new issue to get that fixed sometime.
