CoverGrid

CoverGrid (mcg) is a client for the Music Player Daemon (MPD), focusing on albums instead of single tracks. It is not intended to be a replacement for your favorite MPD client but an addition to get a better album-experience.

License: GPL v3

Dependencies:

Additionally a MPD server (version >= 0.21.0) is required at runtime.

Building

Build the application with meson and ninja:

$ meson build
$ ninja -C build

Running/Testing

For testing the application and running it without (system-wide) installation, donwload/clone the code, build it with the --prefix option and install it with ninja:

$ meson --prefix $(pwd)/install build
$ ninja -C build
$ ninja -C build install

After that you can run it with mesons devenv command:

$ meson devenv -C build src/mcg

Installing

Install the application system-wide with meson (after building):

$ ninja -C build install

Note: On Linux using the distributions package manager is the preferred way of installing applications system-wide.
