rcmpd - Controlling MPD (Music Player Daemon) with an IR Remote Control
rcmpd is written as a bash script with very little requirements.

Those .rst files are formatted in reStructuredText, if anyone is wondering. They are used to automatically generate the html files for my site as well.
So the complete infos are available on my rcmpd site: http://ziemski.net/rcmpd/.
