Excluding "special-folders" from MPD-library

Postby AndyF » 08 Jun 2019, 09:25

Hi @all!

Thanks to rern, I could test a method to exclude special folders like "bookmarks","coverarts" etc. from MPD-library.
RuneUI-enhanced creates some of them to hold additional datas for Coverart, bookmarks and other things.

Just create a file ".mpdignore" with a list of subdirectories to exclude, one per line. Then put it in the same directory of those to exclude.

So my content in ".mpdignore"-file at NAS/root looks like:

Code: Select all
bookmarks
lyrics
coverarts
playlists
webradios
settings


This folders are hidden in RuneUIe after update of the database - and a clean library looks great :D

rern has some advanced scripts to create this file:
