 +===== EMPC =====
 +
 +EMPC is a client for MPD written using EFL. Its focus is speed-of-use and minimalism. It does not support other media playing backends.
 +
 +For most delicious taste, set MPD_HOST environment variable to the path of mpd's local socket. Also ensure your user has access to this socket.
 +
 +==== Installation ====
 +
 +    sudo apt-get install empc
 +
 +{{:​empc-default.png?​200|}}
 +
 +==== Usage ====
 +
 +Controls:
 +
 +The UI of EMPC is based on mouse movements and event areas. Moving the mouse to an area of the application window will trigger a change in the view state. Unless the current view has been mouse-hold toggled or keyboard toggled using a global hotkey, it will automatically hide after HIDE_TIMEOUT seconds.
 +
 +Hints for available navigation appear when the view changes:
 +   blue indicates a new view is available in a direction
 +   red indicates the previous view is available in a direction
 +
 +Mouse bindings for the player view and event area sizes can be changed using the defines at the top of empc.edc.
