Plait (pronounced "play") is a command-line jukebox and music player front end. It understands brief, easy to type queries that pick a single song, mix queries that combine works from multiple artists, stream queries that find Shoutcast radio streams, and everything in between. A variety of filters are available to pick just the music you want to hear. In order to actually play the music it finds, Plait automatically hands off a play list to one of the supported music players (or you can use it manually with any player that supports .m3u playlists).
