From Stuff about code:
I’m building a Raspberry Pi powered vintage radio, by stripping out all the gubbings and add a raspberry pi, IQAudio DAC & Amp.
I’m going to use Volumio to provide the music player and UI, but in order to get the existing buttons on the radio working I need to interact with MPD (Music Player Daemon) which is the server software which makes it all work.
There is a python library called python-mpd2 [code] which provides an api for communicating with MPD, its pretty easy to use and it allows you to do things such as change the volume, play, pause, stop, skip tracks, change playlists, search for music, etc.
