mpd-sima(1) mpd-sima will try to maintain some titles ahead in the queue following different policies.

SYNOPSIS

mpd-sima [--daemon] [--config=conf_file] [--var-dir=var_directory] [--pid=pid_file] [--log=log_file] [--log-level=log_level] [--host=mpd_host] [--mpd_port=mpd_port]
mpd-sima --create-db [--var-dir=var_directory]
mpd-sima --generate-config [...]
mpd-sima {{-h | --help--version}

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the mpd-sima commands.

At start up default configuration is first overridden by user configuration in mpd_sima.cfg (see the section called "FILES") and finally command lines options are honored. For instance you can override default MPD_HOST set in defaults (localhost) or in your configuration file with -S my_mpd_server option. For default configuration see the section called "CONFIGURATION". See also environment variables special case for MPD host and port in the section called "ENVIRONMENT".

EXAMPLE

Launch as a system service (dæmon).

Here follows an example on how to launch mpd-sima as a service on your system, not attach to regular user configuration/database.

mpd-sima --daemon --conf=/etc/mpd_sima.cfg --var-dir=/var/cache/mpd-sima/ --pid=/run/mpd-sima.pid --log=/var/log/mpd-sima.log

Launch in user land

Launching mpd-sima from/whithin your user account is easy, you can simply call mpd-sima from your shell or one of the following command:

Background execution (dæmonise), log in the specified file, save pid:

mpd-sima --daemon --pid=$HOME/var/run/mpd-sima.pid --log=$HOME/var/log/mpd-sima.log

Foreground execution, connect my.mpd.server.org, log to std(out|err):

mpd-sima --host=my.mpd.server.org

OPTIONS

The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.

-h, --help

Print help and exit.

--version

Print version and exit.

--daemon

Start as a daemon. Log redirected to /dev/null, usually setting --log and --pid options in daemon mode are a good idea to monitor/stop the process.

-p pid_file, --pid=pid_file

Use the specific file pid_file to store pid to.
Default is not to store pid info.

-l log_file, --log=log_file

Use the specific file log_file to log messages to.
Default is to log to stdout/stderr.

-v log_level, --log-level=log_level

Verbosity in [debug,info,warning,error].
Default is to log info messages.

-c conf_file, --config=conf_file

Use the specific file conf_file to set up configuration instead of looking for the default user configuration file.
Default is to look for $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mpd_sima/mpd_sima.cfg.

CLI option overrides any equivalent mentioned in configuration file, ie. launching mpd-sima with '--port' CLI option will ignore port setting in configuration file.

For more details on configuration file cf. mpd_sima.cfg(5), see also the section called "FILES".

--var-dir=var_directory

Use the specific path var_directory to look for (or create) var files (ie. database) instead of looking at the default user data location.
Default is to look in $XDG_DATA_HOME/mpd_sima/. Concerning $XDG_DATA_HOME see also the section called "FILES"

--generate-config

Generate a sample configuration file according to the current configuration. You can put other options with this one to get them in the generated configuration.

--create-db

Create the database and exit. Uses folder specified with --var-dir or default directory.
Default is to use $XDG_DATA_HOME/mpd_sima/. Concerning $XDG_DATA_HOME see also the section called "FILES"

-S mpd_host, --host=mpd_host

Use the specific host mpd_host as MPD server.
mpd_host can be an IP or a fully qualified domain name as long as your system can resolve it. This overrides MPD_HOST environment variable.
Default is localhost.

See also the section called "ENVIRONMENT".

-P mpd_port, --port=mpd_port

Use the specific port number mpd_port on MPD server. This overrides MPD_PORT environment variable.
Default is 6600.

See also the section called "ENVIRONMENT"

FILES

${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/mpd_sima/mpd_sima.cfg

Configuration file.

${XDG_DATA_HOME}/mpd_sima/sima.db

SQLite DB file.

${XDG_DATA_HOME}/mpd_sima/WEB_SERVICE/

Persistent http cache.

Usually XDG_DATA_HOME is set to ${HOME}/.local/share and XDG_CONFIG_HOME to ${HOME}/.config.
You may override them using command line option --var-dir and --config (cf. mpd-sima(1))

ENVIRONMENT

MPD_HOST, MPD_PORT

mpd-sima will look for MPD_HOST and MPD_PORT to override built-in configuration (set to "localhost:6600").

mpd-sima expects MPD_HOST syntax as documented in mpc manual, cf. mpc(1).


To use a password, provide a value of the form "password@host".

HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY

mpd-sima honors HTTP_PROXY environment variables.

CONFIGURATION

mpd_sima.cfg

mpd_sima.cfg is read if present. Otherwise built-in defaults are used. An example should be provided in the tarball within doc/examples/. On Debian system please look in /usr/share/doc/mpd-sima.

DEFAULTS

Default is to look for MPD server at localhost:6600 (or MPD_HOST/MPD_PORT env. var. if set).

The get the defaults as detected by mpd-sima on your system you can run mpd-sima to print the config:

mpd-sima --generate-config

For details about mpd_sima.cfg refer to the manual mpd_sima.cfg(5)
