Short Description
The autoqueue client MPD-Sima. Using alpine linux. To use with MPD. Part of docker-music-stack.
Full Description


This is an image for the interactive autoqueue client MPD-sima using alpine as the operating system. This is an add-on for MPD.

The idea is use this image together with a fully audio stack. You can edit the sima.conf or use the fully audio stack I created. Check below about docker-music-stack

Check alpine-mpd, alpine-icecast, alpine-sima and alpine-ympd.

How to use

docker run --name=sima -d vitiman/alpine-sima:latest

An instance of sima is running.

Custom configuration

Check the github repository and you will find a sima.conf you can edit and set your custom configuration. You just need to build the image again.

The passwords in the configuration are just for testing purposes.


I've made a group of images for a full music-stack fully working.

  • mpd My favorite music server application
  • icecast: To stream the audio over the world
  • sima: Autoqueue client. Never stop listen!
  • ympd: A minimal Web GUI.

Check the Github repository or the rest of images in Docker Hub. There is a docker-compose to setup everything.


You have two options to execute all the stack, using docker-compose or
launching the containers one-by-one, your choice.

The default access to applications are:

  • mpd: http://localhost:6600 or http://docker_machine_ip:6600
  • icecast streaming: http://localhost:8000/mpd or http://docker_machine_ip:8000/mpd
  • ympd gui: http://localhost:8080 or http://docker_machine_ip:8080
