Don't Poke Badgers
Free/Open Source Software from Joshua Cantara


      This script (along the lines of Apache::MP3) will display your MP3 collection as a searchable, browseable, streamable website. Think: iTunes for your web browser. Stream your music from anywhere and without installing anything.

2011 Update: Most of the features provided by this app have been duplicated in any number of free or commercial offerings. I leave the code here simply as a reference for those who would like to customize it for their own use or would prefer the privacy of their own streaming service. It may still be an attractive option in lieu of sharing your music library with a 3rd party or uploading it to another service such as Amazon, Google or iTunes.
