Rust audio player daemon


RAPD is a simple music player daemon, it runs in the background as an user process, and accepts TCP connections via its tcp server. Clients can control its built in audio player, query the JSON music database, and create playlists. RAPD can do this with very little resources, since it does not have a heavy bloated GUI to keep updated while its running. This also means that all you don't need a client open to play the music, simply open a client, select the music to play, and close it until you need it again.
