cplay: The gold standard

Before I launch (pun intended) into other console music players — a subject which could sustain a blog for a year on its own — I should quickly revisit the one that started it all: cplay.


Yep, this little monster is what made everything possible. Everything you know about K.Mandla and the cult of personality that surrounds him/her, can be traced back to this litle ditty.

If you’ve used cplay, you know it’s one of the sparsest players that still uses a browser-playlist arrangement, and despite that is light as a feather.

If you haven’t used it, you’ll get a rousing introduction to it from this geek, who wrote out an overly long and excessively rambling essay about it. What a dork. …

All humor aside, cplay is still a good exercise in lightweight console-based applications. If you are considering the text-only lifestyle, this might be a good place to start your journey.

Nuff said. 😉
