MusicCabinet Dead?

Postby cntrle » Sat Jun 21, 2014 1:48 pm

Ahoy,

I've been running MusicCabinet for a little over a year now. Since then there have been no updates, fixes, or any communication (that I can tell) from the developer. I'm curious to know if anyone else is picking this project up, or if it's game over. It would be a shame to see it die since I think it provides some much needed functionality from vanilla Subsonic.

Curious to hear your take on what I should do with my MusicCabinet installation (~100 users/20k spins per mo)

It's been pretty dead. No one else has shown any interest in picking it up. Of it provides the functionality you want you might as well stock with it until it doesn't anymore.

Yea I would really like to see it and hakko coming back. In my opinion it's fantastically great with the information gathering from last.fm and the tag-based index.
I'm not quite sure why the main-subsonic distro deosn't pick up on these features :(

I've actually been working on adding support for some new projects. USB File syncing, spotify (premium) support and making it more Ajax-y. My repos are very much a work in progress, but if you're interested in looking at them feel free to check them out here and report any bugs:

Hi,
cool that you pick up MusicCabinet. I'm not using spotify at the moment but it may be interesting in the feature. Even though I guess such features need a lot of support (due to changes on the spotify side).
I would like improvements regarding the search function sometimes.
if i click on a song which is for a example on an Album, then it's sometimes really hard to make musiccabinet display the whole album. it just wants to display you the search result.

I'm not familiar enough with Spotify, how does the integration work with Music Cabinet?

that's fantastic news! are there any binaries available which we could use to test the server? I'm not familiar with compiling. :(

I have been using MusicCabinet for about 2 years now for friends and family, and they love it! :D It is really great, and I would like it if support could be continued.

Another request: I would like to have button for my FLAC collection, which says "Download as MP3".

I have to reinstall my hobby server after OVH destroyed the old hard disk & now I am in doubt to reinstall MusicCabinet again. It still seems the best option around though... Maybe I should check Thomas repo... Is that still a good option?

Ok I tried to compile musiccabinet from thomas48 github, but I couldn't get it working. This is on a headless debian wheezy server with java 8 & maven 3 installed.

joris@debian:~$ mvn -version
Apache Maven 3.0.4
Maven home: /usr/share/maven
Java version: 1.8.0_25, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "linux", version: "3.2.0-4-amd64", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

First installed libspotify, than created an api key on spotify & cloned and installed libjahspotify from thomas48
after that cloned subsonic & musiccabinet from thomas48. Postgressql & postgresql-contrib were already installed.
on ~/musiccabinet/musiccabinet-server
Code: Select all
mvn compile 
mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=com.github.hakko.musiccabinet.service.DatabaseAdministrationService


completed without any problem
but
Code: Select all
mvn install


wouldn't pass the tests. Even mvn -fn install didn't complete succesful. Only if I skipped the tests totally with mvn install -DskipTests I could get a succesful build.

same happened in ~/subsonic where I could only get a succesful build with: mvn install -DskipTests
~/subsonic/subsonic-booter would do: mvn install without any problems.

But I can't get ~/subsonic/subsonic-installer-standalone to build a package with mvn package.

It fails with:

Code: Select all
[INFO] Scanning for projects...

I have no clue what that means & it is maybe/probably related to the failing tests earlier. Anyone an idea what is going wrong? Is it because I use java 8?

Yeah, I need to work on the tests. MusicCabinet's tests require an active postgresql database which is a bit of a heavy lift for a dev environment where you just want to compile a war. To skip the tests and install properly do the following:

Code: Select all
cd ~/musiccabinet/musiccabinet-server
mvn install -DskipTests=true

cd ~/subsonic/subsonic-master
mvn install -DskipTests=true

cd ~/subsonic/subsonic-standalone
mvn install


Let me know if that works for you. Hopefully we can compile this into a tutorial.

No doesn't seem to work. I don't have a folder subsonic-master. Maybe you mean subsonic-main?
But doing a mvn install in subsonic-main doesn't make a difference.

It keeps failing:

Code: Select all
joris@ks397011:~/subsonic/subsonic-installer-standalone$ mvn install

Don't know if it is helpful, but this is the pom.xml from inside subsonic-standalone-installer http://sprunge.us/FjMf
