Over the past few years, I have been slowly but surely building my own music player. It's been a wild ride. The codebase has radically changed several times, but is always converging on a better music listening experience.

In this article my goal is to take you along for the ride.

"...insists on using playlists and keeping the whole library as a separate thing

^Yep.

I have my entire music collection meticulously organized by name and directory structure. I don't need or want my music player to sort it for me. Haven't really found a good one for Linux that doesn't insist on building a music library.

Good old VLC will let you play directory’s and has a random button.
I just pick the top directory, press random and it will play all day going down through all the sub directory’s.
