cmus fullscreen interface 17. November 2008

As I already wrote some weeks ago, I am working on a script to display the currently playing track from cmus in a fullscreen application in order to be able to read it from “far” away (i.e. my bed or something). Since then, the app gained the browser feature so you can browse your cmus library from bed as well and select tracks to be played. The whole thing is very basic, poorly coded and experimental, but it has proven to be useful to me so I decided to just release it. You can’t configure anything right now, it simply has to work. Also, the underlying cmus python module relies on directly connecting to the socket in ~/.cmus/socket, so it won’t work over network or if your socket is anywhere else.
