python-mpd2 is a Python library which provides a client interface for the Music Player Daemon.
Difference with python-mpd¶
python-mpd2 is a fork of python-mpd. While 0.4.x was backwards compatible with python-mpd, starting with 0.5 provides enhanced features which are NOT backward compatibles with the original python-mpd package. See Porting for more information.
The following features were added:
Python 3 support (but you need at least Python 2.7 or 3.4)
support for the client-to-client protocol
support for new commands from MPD v0.17 (seekcur, prio, prioid, config, searchadd, searchaddpl) and MPD v0.18 (readcomments, toggleoutput)
remove deprecated commands (volume)
explicitly declared MPD commands (which is handy when using for example IPython)
a test suite
API documentation to add new commands (see Future Compatible)
support for Unicode strings in all commands (optionally in python2, default in python3 - see Unicode Handling)
support for logging
improved support for sticker
improved support for ranges
