I modified the YMPD Web GUI to create an interface suitable for a 2.8 PiTFT screen.
In my scenario, I am connecting to another Raspberry Pi running as a MPD server.

I compiled these files into a new build.
From there I simply launch the Chromium browser in Kiosk mode.

#!/bin/bash  
echo "Start Kiosk"
chromium-browser --start-fullscreen --kiosk --window-position=0,0 --window-size=320,240 http://localhost:8080 &
cd ympd/build
echo "Launch YMPD"
./ympd --webport 8080 --host 192.168.1.92 --port 6600
