Hacker's player: a music player that runs in the cmd

Wanna listen to music while looking like an hacker ? Search no further ! Now you can listen to music from the terminal ! There is a simple text ui: currently playing *Name of the file* [## ] 0:20/1:15 Controls: Space: pause/play R: toggle repeat mode Left/Right: rewind/forward 5 seconds Z: previous song X: next song C: change color M: minimixe/maximize H: show help It plays files trought args: HackerPlayer.exe someFile.mp3 : plays a file HackerPlayer.exe someFile.mp3 someFile2.mp3 ... : creates a playlist with the files HackerPlayer.exe C:...\someFolder\ : creates a playlist with the files of the folder HackerPlayer.exe playlist.txt\m3u : Loads a playlist from a text file (one file each line, only local files) pretty much that's it, barebones but it does its job. (Of course any contribution is welcome)

    You might get some more ideas from CMUS (https://cmus.github.io)

    @fun2code idk i think making it from scratch would be easier since I'm unfamiliar with c++ on Linux.

    Unfortunately looks like naudio is not fully supported on Linux, this might end up being windows only

    I've started working on it, the basic player works, today I'll add playlists and a file explorer, the ui management is still wip. As soon as i get home I'll upload it to GitHub.

    Right now it just opens a file and plays it.
    Idk what you mean with configurable, but it's open source, if something's missing you're welcome to implement it :P

    Ok so, i've finished a basic playlist support, now it works.
    you can get both the source and the first working build here: https://github.com/exelix11/...

    Please keep in mind that i did this in less than 2 days and tested it by myself, so it's pretty barebones and there might be some bugs. if you find a way to consistently crash it, open an issue on github or tell me here.
    Also if you'd like to contribute remember that I'm not a full time dev and i tried my best to keep the code clean (or at least readable :P )

    Still i think it works good for me, so from now on i'm going to use it as my music player :D

    You could extend it with the music api from Apple so you’re able to run Apple Music too

    @bcye Why tho, just use itunes, anyway i don't use it so probably not.

    @Floydian go to the releases tab on GitHub, download the zip and unpack it.
