How to Make a Music Player Using Python


Published at - Nov 02, 2021

Hello there!

Today we’ll use Python to create a GUI for our music player. There will be no more conversations; prepare with your interpreter!

Why do I want it? To learn and boost my Python skills.

Prerequisites

  1. Python Fundamentals knowledge

  2. Tkinter and PyGame should be installed. After that, we must import modules.

Installation

pip install pygame

Start Coding

Code with explanation:

  • Import required packages at the top of that Python file.

  • The music is played using the playsong() method. It plays the needed music after loading the active song from the list. When the user presses the “play” button, it is activated.

  • The currentsong() function prints the currently playing song/music in the PlayList. It sets ‘Playing’ as the song state.

  • These three functions are all interconnected. The pausesong() method stops the music and changes the status to “Paused.” The stopsong() method and resumesong() method perform the same functions as their names suggest.

  • The primary GUI window is called root in this case. The window’s title is set by root.title. (Change it as you want)

  • These are also GUI-related. The letters ‘fg’ and ‘bg’ stand for foreground and backdrop, respectively.

  • playlist.grid() uses absolute row and column coordinates to place widgets in a two-dimensional grid.

  • In Python, the chdir() method is used to change the current working directory to a given path. As for the new directory path, it only accepts one option.

  • The Python listdr() function is used to acquire a list of all files and folders in a given directory. If we don’t provide a directory, the current working directory’s list of files and directories will be returned.

  • It adds all of the files in our file directory into the playlist in the ‘for’ loop.

This is the final section. These are all lines for GUI Buttons.

  • command is a verb that means “to command.” The common name is the name of the function that we created originally. For example, resumesong and playsong. All other GUI variables were discussed previously.

Finally, you’ve created your Python music player! Congratulations, friend!

Since we want only the music player, don’t care much about GUI.😉

I hope you enjoy this modest music player with few options. Don’t forget to applaud for this article and follow me.

Thank you for reading!
