Pyrana 2.0.0

A minimalist mp3 player
Pyrana is a minimalist music player.

This program was written out of frustration with larger music players. Pretty much all I've ever wanted out of a music player was one that played random albums by picking a random artist, then picking a random album, then playing that album, then picking another random artist.

For some reason,I've never run into a music player that played random albums that way, which led to me often ending up having to skip past multiple albums by a particular artist, especially when the artist has a large discography.

While I call this player minimalist, that's not set in stone -- I'll probably add scrobbling capability and other various features. These features will, however, be ones that I find useful. I highly doubt this app will ever be incredibly bloated.


Pyrana stores its configuration in ~/.pyrana/pyrana.cfg. It currently accepts 3 options:

use_notify :: whether or not to use libnotify to pop up little messages about what's playing, defaults to True

music_dir :: where your music is located, defaults to ~/music

update_pidgin_status :: whether you want Pyrana to update your pidgin status for you when a track updates, defaults to True
