Web frontend to MPD
Rompr is a music player that runs in your web browser. It browses and plays all your local files and has excellent integration with Last.FM. On top of all that, you can use Rompr in a browser on one computer to play music out of another. So if you have a media centre connected to your Hi-Fi, Rompr can control it. Rompr requires mpd (the Music Player Daemon) or mopidy to be running. Its looks are inspired by Amarok 2.

NOW TESTED AND WORKING ON iPAD2!!!
Ubuntu users can now install RompR from my PPA:
- Music Player
- Has a sophisticated collectionizer - sorts your music by artist and album so you don't have to keep everything organised into directories
- If you prefer to keep your music organized yourself, you can browse your directories directly
- Plays local music, Last.FM radio stations, Icecast radio, Live BBC Radio, and soma fm radio
- Cover art support
- Get artist biographies from Last.FM and Wikipedia
- Play a slideshow of artist images
- Runs in a browser
- Frontend for mpd
- Spotify playback (when used with mopidy)
I was looking for a straightforward MPD web interface and when I found RompR, I was so happy - it was exactly what I was looking for! Although it's such a fresh project, it already has most of things I wanted, good job. A few things, though: - open the tickets, so users can request features / report bugs ( I dunno if it's possible on SF.net) - the volume control bar and percentage scrobbling bar don't work on Win7/Gentoo - Firefox 9, also when MPD is playing. (it also would be nice to make the volume control more visible) - write the title= labels for buttons, so it's easier to find out what each button does - add a button for sending an "update database" command to the MPD. - a favicon please? :) - a search bar also on the right side would be useful - sometimes you only want to search inside the playlist. Thanks a lot for your project and keep up the good work!
simple and straight forward to use
rompr is fast and stable
This application is amazing and easy to setup. I love it. I wish there will be some keyboard shortcuts customization and many additional features in the future.
Wow! Great stuff! I was searching for something like that for months! Last.fm has some problems but i am sure that is fixable.
