Nuclear: Streaming Music Player That Finds Free Music for You


Desktop music player focused on streaming from free sources


What is this?

nuclear is a free music streaming program that pulls content from free sources all over the internet.

If you know mps-youtube, this is a similar music player but with a GUI. It's also focusing more on audio. Imagine Spotify which you don't have to pay for and with a bigger library.

What if I am religiously opposed to Electron?
