Projects / Herrie


Herrie is a command line music player. It has a split-screen file manager and playlist interface and supports a number of file formats (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, wave, FLAC, etc). It also has some nice features, including a chroot() function for untrusted setups (remote logins, parties, etc). AudioScrobbler is also implemented using Curl.

            great player
            Herrie has a number of nice features: nice split-screen interface, easy file-based configuration, and straightforward filesystem navigation. About the only downside I encountered was use with xterm - difficult to navigate, etc. - recommended to use konsole or another term with color support, etc.
