README.md

gdead

Play Grateful Dead shows in your terminal.

Installation

# Download
git clone https://gitea.gf4.pw/ki9/gdead.git /usr/local/src/gdead
# "Build"
ln -s /usr/local/src/gdead/gdead /usr/local/bin/gdead

Usage

gdead [-g|--gui] [-r|--rand|--random] [-a|--aud|--audience] [year [month [day]]]

Takes year, month, and day as arguments and plays the top-rated soundboard on archive.org. Providing no unnamed parameters searches the entire vault.

NOTE: The date parsing is still pretty primitive so don't be an edge case: use 4-digit years and 2-digit months/days.

GUI or terminal

By default gdead will open your show with nvlc, which uses an ncurses-based terminal interface. To open the show as a playlist in vlc's GUI, use the -g flag.

Audience recordings

By default, gdead only returns soundboards and matrices. To use audience-recordings too, use the -a flag

Random

To sort by random instead of rating, use the -r flag.

Examples

Play the top-rated version of Woodstock Festival, including audience-tapes:

gdead -a 1969 08 16

Play a random show from '72:

gdead -r 1972
