Script to delete currently playing track
It has been nagging me for a while that deleting a song using the "Service -> Delete Selected Files" plugin wasn't convenient enough.
So I want to share a small script I wrote to delete the currently playing song from the filesystem and from the playlist. You can bind it to a keyboard shortcut.
#!/bin/bash # Deletes the currently playing song from the filesystem and from the playlist. set -eu set -o pipefail # Avoid accidentally deleting next song if pressed delete too late and it # already advanced to the next song. seconds_playing="$(audtool current-song-output-length-seconds)" if [ $seconds_playing -gt 5 ]; then fpath="$(audtool current-song-filename)" mv "$fpath" ~/.local/share/Trash/files playlist_pos="$(audtool playlist-position)" audtool playlist-delete "$playlist_pos" notify-send -t 3000 "DELETED: $fpath" fi
The `notify-send` line shows a notification on what file you deleted just so you're sure you deleted the right thing. If you don't have `libnotify` installed you can comment it out.
