websocket_port =
on_track_click = PLAY_ALL

The following configuration values are available should you wish to customize your installation further:

  • musicbox_webclient/enabled: If the MMW extension should be enabled or not. Defaults to true.
  • musicbox_webclient/musicbox: Set this to true if you are connecting to a Mopidy instance running on a Pi Musicbox. Expands the MMW user interface to include system control/configuration functionality.
  • musicbox_webclient/websocket_host: Optional setting to specify the target host for Mopidy websocket connections.
  • musicbox_webclient/websocket_port: Optional setting to specify the target port for Mopidy websocket connections.
  • musicbox_webclient/on_track_click: The action performed when clicking on a track. Valid options are: PLAY_ALL (default), PLAY_NOWPLAY_NEXTADD_THIS_BOTTOMADD_ALL_BOTTOM, and DYNAMIC (repeats last action).
