In bullet summary

Glurp 0.11.6 player.png

  • Glurp had the basic features you can expect from very basic bare-bones MPD client, but it did not have anything "extra" beyond the bare essential feature-set.
  • It wasn't very user-friendly.
  • It allowed you to control a MPD, and that's about it.
  • It has not been updated since 2014. It appears to be dead and unmaintained.
