Installation

You will need a relatively recent version of Node.js, as well as mpv (apt install mpv and the like work fine).

git clone https://git.ed1.club/florrie/mtui.git  # Or https://notabug.org/towerofnix/mtui.git
cd mtui
npm install
npm link  # Or sudo npm link
mtui  # Or node .

Add music to the ~/Music folder to make it show up in mtui, or pass mtui a playlist.json file (usually generated by http-music or downloaded from online) or any directory containing music you'd like to play.

This is useful for keeping track of notes, lyrics, etc on tracks or groups, and for just quickly accessing any miscellaneous text files.)
    • Ctrl+S: manually save the text file (it will also auto-save when it is closed)
    • Ctrl+X or Escape: defocus the text editor
