Print timed lyrics from an LRC file for MPD's currently playing song
line-by-line to `stdout`: <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LRC_%28file_format%29>
Needs `Net::MPD` and a few core Perl packages. Expects to find lyrics named
`Artist - Title.lrc` in `~/.lyrics`. An LRC file I made for Darkthrone's "To
Walk The Infernal Fields" from their 1993 album "Under a Funeral Moon" is
included for testing.
This could maybe be used with `libnotify` or a similar desktop notification
tool to display lyrics in a corner as you work on other things. I've included a
simple Bash wrapper around `notify-send(1)` which works for me.
You can install both with `make install`. The default `PREFIX` is `/usr/local`.
You may prefer `$HOME/.local`, like I do.
This code is not maintained. There are plans to repackage it as a Perl 5 module
unto itself, using [Music::Lyrics::LRC]. The latter module is
feature-complete and available on CPAN, but a version of `mpdlrc` that actually
uses it has yet to be written.
