RhythmBox MQTT Plugin

This is a plugin for Rhythmbox that will post the current title/album/artist to MQTT as well as the current playing status (playing/paused/inactive).

It was developed for a particular use case of mine, namely this LED status screen:

I tried looking for a Rhythmbox MQTT plugin but didn't find one. Maybe that means nobody else needs such a thing. But just in case it's useful to anyone else, you can find the source code on GitHub. It has not been tested beyond in my own use on my own desktop, so it is likely to be buggy.

You can read more about the LED screen in in this blog post. You can read more about my experiences developing a Rhythmbox plugin in Python in this blog post.
