Suggestions for the next RuneUI version

Postby zorglub » 02 Sep 2016, 14:45

Dear Santa Klaus,

You already did an amazing job, however for my new version of RuneUI I would like:

1) MPD :
A scrolling list of outputs without having to edit the config.txt file (Rasperry I2S outputs)
Programing is not m'y best... at all

2) SETTINGS ;
The display of the installed version of RuneUI in "show status"
A langage set-up menu
An automatic download and installation of the lastest stable version in Backup/Restore

3) NETWORK;
A wifi hotspot support in order to use the Raspberry as a mobile, stand-alone server (using the onboard Wifi of the Raspberry3)

4) PLAYBACK
A display of the lyrics from LastFM (for instance) below the two knobs and the art display
An automatic search for the missing album artworks from amazon (or where ever...)

5) LIBRARY

An first sorting option using only the first lettre of the album tittle with a direct jump to the letter. The letter could be displayed in capital Inside a big blue squarre (exactly as it is done on Lumia phones for the contacts list)
An optionnal display of the album artworks as a miniature
An album Ranking (based on the classical five stars...)

Library main menu:

The direct integration of QOBUZ and TIDAL (without using BubbleUPnP
A "Browsing by favorites" tile (based on the number of stars)
A "Browsing by composers" tile, only for classical music addicts

Cheers
zorglub

Hi zorglub,

welcome to RuneAudio.

From wikipedia:
Santa Claus is believed to make lists of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("naughty" or "nice") and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the flying reindeer who pull his sleigh.

So i talked to our elves and they told me:
0 zorglub is a nice behaving guy (we should fulfill his wishes)
1) MPD :
A scrolling list of outputs without having to edit the config.txt file (Rasperry I2S outputs)
Programing is not m'y best... at all

Will be implemented with next release
2) SETTINGS ;
The display of the installed version of RuneUI in "show status"
A langage set-up menu
An automatic download and installation of the lastest stable version in Backup/Restore

Version display is on the credits page. OK can be copied / moved to status.
Selectable language is longtime on our roadmap, i hope it comes with Ver. 2.
Updates: We have to find a good solution for this.
3) NETWORK;
A wifi hotspot support in order to use the Raspberry as a mobile, stand-alone server (using the onboard Wifi of the Raspberry3)

It is on its way see here.
5) LIBRARY

An first sorting option using only the first lettre of the album tittle with a direct jump to the letter. The letter could be displayed in capital Inside a big blue squarre (exactly as it is done on Lumia phones for the contacts list)
An optionnal display of the album artworks as a miniature
An album Ranking (based on the classical five stars...)

Library will be reworked for Ver. 2. First tests with browsing by album art look promising.
The direct integration of QOBUZ and TIDAL (without using BubbleUPnP
A "Browsing by favorites" tile (based on the number of stars)
A "Browsing by composers" tile, only for classical music addicts

Our elves are very busy at the moment, so let us see what we can do.

I hope you can wait until Christmas.

Hi,

I'd like to add some ideas that I would really like in the UI.

    1) The playback, prev, next and stop buttons could be a bit larger
    2) Nice to see the bit rate, source sample rate and bits in the queue too. Easier to find my 24 bit recordings
    3)On the rasptouch, the display goes blank after a preset amount of secs. If you leave the UI on Queue and want to activate the display, you have to touch the display somewhere. But doing so will also change the track in the queue if you do not happen to touch it on the track that's playing.
    4) Would be nice to see the prev and next tracks in the playback screen and maybe some info about the song, album or artist (e.g. from last.fm) when you hit the album art.


I hope that can be considered.

Thanks
Pietpara

I have an ongoing problem with being able to play multiple albums with the same name. If I have two or more albums with the same name and browse the library by Artist, it will not necessarily play the album I want.... but one by another artist with a name alphabetically sooner.
