I've thought about it, but the ability to just airplay from my mac or my ipad to the tv kinda reduces the need.

The subfire 4 core library should provide a head start for the javascript API side (with typescript types, btw), though i've not gone out of my way to document them yet as my priority has been on rebuilding the UI on top of them. https://www.npmjs.com/package/@subfire/core

This library is independent of all of the UI-specific features of subfire. There is also @subfire/hooks which provides react hooks for common functionality from core without any specific UI elements, and then the WIP layer of @subfire/components which are all built on MUI-5.

Agreed.Not many but there have been more than a few times that I had been watching something via my AppleTV. After watching I'd usually fire up my iPhone and play to my home stereo via Subsonic/AirportExpress. Those few times were when phone nor tablet was near and I was too damn lazy to go find either. I resorted to playing through the AppleTV music app. This last time, the other day, it dawned on me I sure would have preferred to use a Subsonic app. If I had such an app I'd probably use it more.

There's also the matter that airplay doesn't stop the appletv screensaver (and more importantly, sleep mode) from kicking in.

my catch is that would i have to design the look and feel from scratch. possible, but time-consuming.

with mui (and before that jquery-mobile) I had all the components (buttons, lists, nicely theme-styled) done already. i'd need to see if there are some matching things out there.

I very much appreciate your thoughts and you taking the time to share them. You've taken more time than I have in my simple wondering!

heh. At 51 and professional developer for almost 30 years, I do today spend more time speculating about what can be done and how to do it than I actually do coding things. So kinda comes instinctively now. no worries.
