The package libmpdel is an Emacs library client to communicate with Music Player Daemon (MPD), a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. For a user interface, please check the mpdel project instead (which depends on this one).


Get libmpdel from melpa or melpa stable. You can also clone the git repository.

You need to install and (quickly) configure an MPD server if you don't have any yet. Don't worry, that's simple and you won't regret it.


This code is a library and is meant for Emacs Lisp developers. The source code is well documented and organized in sections. Please have a look at it.


The library is implemented around a set of entities.

*Name* *Type* *Fields* *Description*
song structure name, album, file, …
album structure name, artist
artist structure name
stored-playlist structure name A named user-specified sequence of songs
search-criteria structure type, what Read the protocol documentation
artists symbol none Represent the set of all artists
albums symbol none Represent the set of all albums
current-playlist symbol none Represent the currently played sequence of songs
stored-playlists symbol none Represent the set of all stored playlists

Many functions in MPDel work on several kinds of entities (e.g., ~libmpdel-list~). These methods are implemented with cl-defgeneric~ and ~cl-defmethod.
