Minirok is a small music player written in Python for the K Desktop Environment (KDE 4).

The software is modelled on the highly popular application, Amarok. However, Minirok is designed to offer only a reduced set of features, simply to meet only the requirements of its author. Nevertheless, the software retains the appearance of Amarok.

The main interface is a tree view of the filesystem, with a playlist that is populated via drag and drop. There is no collection built from tags, so Minirok is intended for individuals whose music collection is structured in a tree already at the filesystem level. Searches can be performed both in the tree view and the playlist.

Minirok is written using the PyKDE bindings and the GStreamer media framework.
