MPD_sima is an non interactive MPD autoqueue client running in the background. It will queue new tracks chosen among artists similar to your current queued tracks, provided a title is found in your music library.

Similar artists are fetched from

This client allows you to never run out of music when your queue is getting short.

the project



The easiest and the cleanest, is, IMHO, to run a python virtual environment.
Python packages are available on PyPi. Installing within a virtualenv is easy then:

# create venv
python3 -m venv mpd_sima-venv
. ./venv/bin/activate
pip install MPD_sima
mpd-sima --help

distribution packages

Packages might be available for your distribution, I’m only aware of Debian and Arch AUR.


A docker image might be up to date:

docker pull kaliko/sima

Please refer to documentation and dockerfile for configuration.
