Pitchfork!

Ok, so those of you who read my article on MPD & Jinzora may have had a play with Jinzora since I published it. And it’s very good. One complaint I’d level at it, though, is that it can be a little sluggish on lower end boxes (like the one I’m running it on). Anyhoo, I was diddling around the net and I came across an alternative frontend for mpd called Pitchfork.

It’s much lighter than Jinzora and has a nice Ajax frontend with the kind of three pane view you’d normally associate with iTunes. What’s even nicer is that it doesn’t require any kind of database cleverness as it pulls all its info directly from MPD and the net (for lyrics and such).

It installs in seconds, so is well worth a look. The homepage is here.
