    :strawberry: Strawberry Music Player (by strawberrymusicplayer)

    I'm old school - having music offline is great if you live in a backwards country (like Germany >.<). Many artists have their music on youtube, so I'm using yt-dlp to download stuff, organize it (again, I'm old school) in ~/music/$artist/$album. Strawberry is my weapon of choice, rsync it to my mobile; using shuttle on Android.

    work in progress music player with Rust+GTK4

    I am trying to make my own gui music player I've used cmus (command line) and it didn't click. also used quod libet and foobar under wine. foobar is the best but i want to get a bit custom. I mostly listen to stuff on youtube so I want my gui music player to support connecting to youtube and maybe bandcamp (I have many bandcamp purchases also, so being able to access those without bulk download is ideal to me even though I've used bandcamp-collection-downloader, it just takes up space on my laptop)

    My collection of my homemade scripts (or not) (by Mte90)

    I have tons of mp3 and still download new ones, so I have a hotkey to delete the mp3 file I am listening with dbus another one to move the mp3 on the parent folder again with dbus (with a hotkey), another script to show the song to discord, a script I mapped as external tool for Dolphin on KDE to execute the folder on cvlc to close the previous instance
