Music App update – Sep 25th.

closeDetta inlägg skrevs för 5 år 5 månader 26 dagar sedan, och om det är av karaktären åsikt, så reserverar jag mig för att jag mycket sannolikt kan ha ändrat den sedan dess. Är det en guide så kan det också vara så att det inte längre är applicerbart eller fungerar. Dock vill jag inte ta bort, eller orkar sortera, gamla inlägg och därför är det kvar.

And so we have less then a month to go before Music 1.0 should(/will) be released.
Oh, and there is a lot that’s happening!

Mediascanner
We don’t longer scan your music collection ourselves. Instead we depend on mediascanner which is a new system service that keeps your music library up to date, and searchable using Dash. Victor worked really hard on making this come true.

Arguments
Click on a track from Unity and Music will play it. Also added a debug argument that will be used to show more output as well as a reset button for all settings and playlists. Used while developing.

Genres
Together with the new UI/UX and mediscanner service, Victor submitted patches upstream to add support for genres, which are now shown in first tab of Music. Press Rock and there will be rock, and only, roll.

Reorder
Since there is no support for drag and drop in Ubuntu SDK, Andrew worked hard on bringing us support for that together with the swipe-to-delete. Now you can press-and-hold a track in, e.g., the queue and move it up or down.

The Future

So, as I was saying we have until the 17th October to finish Music and release 1.0. We had three large changes to do:

1. Use Mediascanner – which is now DONE.

2. Integrate the new UI/UX – INPROGRESS.

3. Make it play music, even when the screen is off – TODO.

So we will keep up with landing new design changes – it will be beautiful! – and we have just started to talk about how to work with the powered system so that we can keep playing music when screen off/app not focused.

As always, I am optimistic: we will get there. Music is already in the daily images, together with the mediascanner. Give it a go, since we will do a lot of polishing the upcoming weeks: report bugs, thank you.
