Last week I got tired of generating playlists using complicated find commands. I wrote a shell script to generate a plain text library of my music, search it using and extended regular expressions, and pipe results to mpv with switches to control repeat and shuffle.

I call it . You’re welcome to use it too.

I wrote and tested it on , but it should work on other BSDs, GNU/Linux, and GNU/systemd.


Sorry I don’t have a Codeberg account so I comment here:

I think Line 21 of rockout is missing a “~/“ as it is pointing at current path and if user run this when they are not in $HOME, the will end up having these folders created left and right.`mkdir -p .local/rockout`
