Open-Source Audio Player that supports a variety of formats

Dusk Player

A minimalistic music player, designed for simplicity. Built on electron, uses Howler for handling music playback, Svelte for the UI, and music-metadata to retrieve ID3 tags.

This can also serve as a starting point to implement your own front-end/UI for a music Player.
