NAME

Dancer::Plugin::MPD - easy connection to MPD from Dancer apps

DESCRIPTION

Provides an easy way to connect to MPD (www.musicpd.org) from a Dancer app. Handles obtaining the connection, making sure the connection is still alive, and reconnecting if not.

SYNOPSIS

In your Dancer app, calling the mpd keyword will get you an MPD connection.

    use Dancer::Plugin::MPD;
    my $current_song = mpd->current;
    mpd->next;

CONFIGURATION

Audio::MPD does sensible things by default, so in the majority of cases (MPD running on the same host as the app, no password needed, and happy to reuse the connection for performance), no configuration will be required at all.

However, the following config settings can be used in your app's config.yml:

    plugins:
        MPD:
            host: localhost
            port: 6600
            password: verysecret
            conntype: reuse

HOOKS

  • mpd_connected

    Called when a connection is established, and receives the Audio::MPD object as its parameter.

        hook 'mpd_connected' => sub {
            my $mpd = shift;
            $mpd->repeat(1);
            $mpd->random(1);
            $mpd->play;
        };
