    It looks amazing I will definitely give it a try. I've already installed kunst, but I've found it crashes a lot.

  • Cli music streaming
    If you want to stream audio from a service like Spotify or SoundCloud, I can recommend Mopidy as a backend with a commandline frontend like ncmpcpp.

    Music player: mpd + ncmpcpp
  • Music Hoarders that moved from Windows to Linux, how was the transition like?
    I did that particular transition myself not that long ago. I used MusicBee and never thought I could replace it, but I did. For library management I use beets and for playing music I use mpd. The front-end I use for mpd is ncmpcpp which is a terminal player. There are several other front ends available. I also use Puddletag to check the tags before importing into beets. If I just want to listen to some files without importing into my library, I use Deadbeef.
