/ mp

Minimalistic MPD client. Provides a roughly ed/mail-like command line interface for interactive use and a set of commands for modifying the playlist and controlling playback.



A typical Unix-like system with an sh-compatible shell, sed, awk and the like is required. Mp is based on mpc, so make sure that is installed as well.

Usage Example

Add all Tame Impala songs to the playlist and play the list randomly, starting with the first track. Bold text is user input.

$ mp
add artist
artist: tame
Adding Tame Impala.
