      I use this constantly, it just plays music by file name, specifically matching *NAME* with case-insensitivity. Requires bash 4.something.

      # play -ln SONGS ...
      # -l don't shuffle
      # -n dry run
      mpv_args="--no-audio-display --no-resume-playback \
                --msg-level=all=status --term-osd-bar"
      shopt -s globstar nullglob nocaseglob
      
      shuffle=true
      dry=false
      while [[ "$1" == -* ]]; do
          if [[ "$1" == "-l" ]]; then 
              shuffle=false
          elif [[ "$1" == "-n" ]]; then
              dry=true
          fi
      
          shift 1
      done
      
      if [[ "$shuffle" == true ]]; then
          mpv_args="--shuffle $mpv_args"
      fi
      
      songs=()
      while [[ "$#" != 0 ]]; do
          songs+=( ~/music/**/**/*"$1"*.* ) # change this to match your music directory layout
          shift 1                                               # could probably use find instead
      done
      
      if [[ "$dry" == true ]]; then
          if [[ "$shuffle" == true ]]; then
              printf "Shuffle mode is on\n"
          fi
      
          for song in "${songs[@]}"; do
              printf "$song\n"
          done
        
          exit
      fi
      
      if [[ ${#songs[@]} != 0 ]]; then
          mpv $mpv_args "${songs[@]}"
      fi
      

      I make no claims to the quality of this but it works!

      A few weeks ago I posted a project I was working on to read news from the command line. I incorporated the suggestions given in that thread (license, requirements.txt, etc), incorporated suggestions I've received elsewhere, and added a few features.

      Here's the updated link: News Desk

      Any feedback would be much appreciated!

      Edit: And a specific point for feedback. I store the user's API key in ~/.nd_config/key which I think is a step up from requiring the user to set their key as an environment variable (which is how I had it originally). Still though, is there some way I can not store the key in plaintext and still have it in a format that is readable by the computer and can be used to verify API access?
