mpd is ::

Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for
playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound
files (e.g., OGG, MP3, FLAC, AAC, WAV) and can be controlled remotely via its
network protocol. It can be used as a desktop music player, but is also great
for streaming music to a stereo system over a local network. There are many
GUI and command-line applications to choose from that act as a front-end for
browsing and playing your MPD music collection.

And setup is quite simple, install with above command then simply, configure your user and Music directory in the mpd config file /etc/mpd.conf.

Fix typescript files generated with script command

Generally quite a lot of us would have used the script command. This generates the logs for the session. But the problem with the logs is that it contains a lot of un-readable characters. These characters are mostly from the color codes, and as such can be removed very easily with a single command:

cat typescript | 
 perl -pe 's/e([^[]]|[.*.*?[a-zA-Z]|].*?a)//g' | col -b > typescript-processed

This assumes the input log file is named as typescript and the output is kept as typescript-processed. You can change the names as required.

get systemd journal entries on web interface.

Just in case you need it, you can get the journalctl entries from systemd in the web page.

First install :

yum install systemd-journal-gateway

Once you have done this you can get the journal entries with wget as well with

wget http://localhost:19531/entries

or if you prefer, you can browse with a browser at http://localhost:19531/. It has a nice little interface for browsing the entries, nothing too fancy but just sufficient.
