Logbook, week 11 (2019-08)

Previous entry


We're received a few interesting contributions this week!

\@Ciarán contributed a lot of documentation, especially some guides to tag your music library with Picard and do common administration tasks via Django's admin backend. He's also spend a lot of time and energy answering support requests,

which allowed me to focus on other tasks.

\@Renon fixed a longstanding bug in our documentation, and \@Jovuit fixed a lot of small annoying issues with our frontend.

\@jibec and Pierrick Brun have almost completed the work on the YunoHost package upgrade to the 0.18.2 release, and could use some feedback about that!

Thanks to a suggestion by \@Floreal, I've been able to properly implement auto-embedding of the player when sharing a Funkwhale URL on Mastodon (and other software supporting twitter cards).

It looks like that:

Embedded player in mastodon

The player was a bit ugly and cluttered on smaller resolution, so \@Tixie brought it to the next level

and it should now render great on a large variety of devices, regardless of the screen width and height, as shown below:

Embedded player responsiveness

On a personnal note, this week development time was focused on the big metadata update feature. I know have

the basic APIs and UI to suggest and browse edits on track metadata, as shown in this video.

Next steps include generalizing this to support update on artists and albums, and federating those changes to other instances.

Project management

As promised last week, you can find a summary of our conclusions from Funkwhale Sync #3

on our forum. This should give you some insight about the next steps!

[\@Ciarán](https://blog.funkwhale.audio/@/Ciar%C3%A1n/ "Ciarán") also launched a discussion regarding our documentation, how it is structured and how we could improve it in the future``{=html}. You probably want to check it out ;) ## Personal I'm a bit struggling with my current rythm. Recent events in my personnal life prevent me to be as focused on Funkwhale as I was in January and December. I'm probably reaching a second phase of my work on Funkwhale: after almost three months switching to full-time work on the project, I expected the energy to diminish a bit. Still, I think things are moving forward, event if at a slightly slower speed, and it's good to see other people contributing to the project! See you next week :)
