Kurrently is a simple BASH script outputs the currently playing artist and track to ~/.playing_now.
Version: 0.2Kurrently is a simple BASH script outputs the currently playing artist and track to ~/.playing_now in this format: Author Name - "Track Name".
Operating System: Linux
Kurrently is meant to be easily modified to direct whatever output you want to whatever location you want.
Because there are several scripts that output track information to a web page, but none that simply dump it to a text file for easy parsing.
Why would I want that?
I don't know. Maybe you use a blogging client that can read plain text files, and you want it to show others what you're listening to automatically? Maybe you'd like to track the order of songs you've been listening to? Maybe you'd like to display the contents of this file in a web page you already have set up somewhere? Do with it as you see fit.
Can I make changes?
Certainly. It's the beauty of the GPL. In fact, I recommend it. This script is very simplistic in what it does and how it does it. If you'd like to make it dance to a different tune, feel free!
