Mopidy
******

Mopidy is an extensible music server written in Python.

Mopidy plays music from local disk, Spotify, SoundCloud, Google Play Music, and
more. You edit the playlist from any phone, tablet, or computer using a range
of MPD and web clients.

**Stream music from the cloud**

Vanilla Mopidy only plays music from your :ref:`local disk <ext-local>` and
:ref:`radio streams <ext-stream>`. Through :ref:`extensions <ext-backends>`,
Mopidy can play music from cloud services like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Google
Play Music. With Mopidy's extension support, backends for new music sources can
be easily added.

**Mopidy is just a server**

Mopidy is a Python application that runs in a terminal or in the background on
Linux computers or Macs that have network connectivity and audio output. Out of
the box, Mopidy is an :ref:`MPD <ext-mpd>` and :ref:`HTTP <ext-http>` server.
:ref:`Additional frontends <ext-frontends>` for controlling Mopidy can be
installed from extensions.

**Everybody use their favorite client**

You and the people around you can all connect their favorite :ref:`MPD
<mpd-clients>` or :ref:`web client <http-clients>` to the Mopidy server to
search for music and manage the playlist together. With a browser or MPD
client, which is available for all popular operating systems, you can control
the music from any phone, tablet, or computer.

**Mopidy on Raspberry Pi**

The :ref:`Raspberry Pi <raspberrypi-installation>` is a popular device to run
Mopidy on, either using Raspbian or Arch Linux. It is quite slow, but it is
very affordable. In fact, the Kickstarter funded Gramofon: Modern Cloud Jukebox
project used Mopidy on a Raspberry Pi to prototype the Gramofon device. Mopidy
is also a major building block in the Pi Musicbox integrated audio jukebox
system for Raspberry Pi.

**Mopidy is hackable**

Mopidy's extension support and :ref:`Python <api-ref>`, :ref:`JSON-RPC
<http-api>`, and :ref:`JavaScript APIs <mopidy-js>` makes Mopidy perfect for
building your own hacks. In one project, a Raspberry Pi was embedded in an old
cassette player. The buttons and volume control are wired up with GPIO on the
Raspberry Pi, and is used to control playback through a custom Mopidy
extension. The cassettes have NFC tags used to select playlists from Spotify.

**Getting started**

To get started with Mopidy, start by reading :ref:`installation`.
