SubFire 2 collective upgrades...

Postby acroyear » Sat Jan 26, 2019 7:47 pm

So lots of little upgrades to the suite in the last few weeks.

Base, Mobile 2 - Music Folder / Directory cards, clicking the play button will now start playing the album/folder. Clicking the whole card opens the contents as a list. (Album and Artist-Album will get this in the next major change).

Base, Mobile 2, Dash - Playlists view can now click a 'shuffle' button, and then clicking any playlist will shuffle the contents before playing.

All - there is now, in Base and Mobile 2, a remote controller that can play, pause, next, prev, shuffle, and skip to next album when controlling another player. It isn't perfect, and you have to be patient, but it is functional. All 4 players can receive it when they are accepting remote commands.

TV - when not on a TV, it uses the normal dialogs instead of the Android TV layout, I found on mobile devices, that layout was burying the content and difficult to work with.

TV - if you're idle on the main pages while it is playing, it will go back to the player mode after a minute.

Base, Mobile 2 - some new options for playing all albums under and artist, or all files under a music directory, from the main list instead of having to click into the list to get to it.

All - ServiceWorker is set to "skip-waiting", so when you reload soon after I've made an upgrade, it won't stick you with the old version the way it used to.

Firefox is not quite 100% parity with Chrome. Safari and PWA on IOS 12 is ok. I haven't tried IE nor Edge in some time.

The various apps are now up to Version 2 0.26.x. Here, I now support loading albums and artist-albums as a list of songs, with an extra 'play' button to just play the work outright, bringing the artist/album and album pages in parity with music directories. Albums can be viewed as a grid of covers or as a list, no matter where you are. The main point of this is to eventually support the full desktop player w/ playlist editor that I'm just about ready to start on.

The bookmarks and remote control systems were improved slightly to handle this change.

Also, i now show the album cover on the player in SubFire Dash, as well as faded as the background, and from the burger menu, you can start artist-album or music directory browsing.
