[Feature Request] Similar Artist code moved Server-Side

Postby bushman4 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 2:40 pm

Howdy Folks,

Quick feature request...

Please consider moving the "similar artist" code from javascript in the client browser to server side code.

Reasoning: Every time I open Madsonic for the first time in a given day, I have to queue up a song to play and then click the chrome option to "allow insecure content" in my otherwise secure SSL page. This does a force reload of the entire browser window, stopping playback and reloading the interface. Then the similar artist info shows.

Admittedly this is only an issue for SSL secured Madsonic sites, but it is a real PITA for those sites.

Moving the similar artist code to the server side would allow the Subsonic Server to perform the insecure connection, and then compose the right frame with the similar artist information and send it to the client in a secure connection, avoiding the error message.

Thanks for the consideration,

Glenn

hi,

you are right, i have the same situation with SSL.

i am working on a new Madsonic server side Last.FM Cache Interface. so then all the outgoing request with JavaScript are deprecated.
with this new interface many other Data Request are possible: Aritst Similar from own Charts, Artist Bio, Artist Summery, TopTracks, TopAlbums

but so many code to write ... :wink:

stay tuned

best regars

When you do get around to rewriting the Similar Artists code, can you make the number of similar artists returned a setting?

Thanks,

Glenn
