At start up default configuration is first overridden by user configuration in mpd_sima.cfg (see the section called "FILES") and finally command lines options are honored. For instance you can override default MPD_HOST set in defaults (localhost) or in your configuration file with -S my_mpd_server option. For default configuration see the section called "CONFIGURATION".
Here follows an example on how to launch mpd-sima as a service on your system, not attach to regular user configuration/database.
mpd-sima --conf=/etc/mpd_sima.cfg --var_dir=/var/cache/mpd-sima/ --log=/var/log/mpd-sima.log
Launching mpd-sima from/whithin your user acount is easy, you can simply call mpd-sima from your shell or one of the following command:
The script is not yet forking the process in background as a regular daemon. Hence you'll have to explicitly ask for it, refer to your shell documentation to do so.
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
-p pid_file, --pid=pid_file
-l log_file, --log=log_file
-c conf_file, --config=conf_file
-S mpd_host, --host=mpd_host
See also the section called "ENVIRONMENT".
-P mpd_port, --port=mpd_port
See also the section called "ENVIRONMENT"
mpd-sima expects MPD_HOST syntax as documented in mpc manual, cf. mpc(1).
To use a password, provide a value of the form "password@host".
The default behavior is to add one track, this track is to be chosen among titles from artists similar to the artist of the currently played track. MPD_sima will add one track when the play list is one track long.
To change these defaults, use the configuration file mpd_sima.cfg
