Displaying the currently playing track now. Moving that fancy clock project to another VFD.
It is attached to my PC via USB, and registering as a serial to USB converter. Had to trick the Linux driver into accepting the device ID. Now it can be controlled by sending characters via serial, including some fancy special sequences for screen settings and cursor movement.
Integrated my already existing now-playing bash script, which returns the currently playing song on either MPD or Spotify. Works like a charm! 😎
