Some tiny improvements!

26-03-2017

I've been coding to improve some features like the time lapsed, which is very important for me, and an weird behavior with the shuffle. They are tiny improvements, but I have some cool things in mind that I will be developing in time. Don't think that I will add Spotify or Google Play; it's not that I don't want, it's just that I use the Web Audio API with streams buffers, and these services like Spotify or Google Play, they don't offer it (obviously). For now I think I've been more active than before. Like always, thanks!


  • - Fixed time lapsed when a song is playing.
  • - Improved and fixed when shuffle is enable and disabled.
  • - Added an option to scroll the list of songs using buttons (The scroll of the windows gets too small when too much songs are loaded).
  • - Added the option to add the song folder (The root parent) from the white space.
  • - Improvement in the code for better performance.

Fixed a problem with the configuration file

Thanks all of you who tried and is using Soube.

It tooks me a long time to release the new version, because I was very busy and, the most important thing, I wanted to give a good new version. So, here you are the new features:


  • - It was improved when you load your songs for the first time.
  • - It was changed the way of showing what song is playing (scrolling down when clicks on the name of the song).
  • - The searching input/bar has a new style according to Soube's look. Also, it's responding responsively.
  • - it was improved the speed when a song is loaded. This is something new, so the code will be changing and maybe will facing possible issues - Please, reports any issue ^_^.
  • - The EQ pannel was changed a bit. The buttons were replaced by a select box. Now you have the option to save your changes, give them a name and then use them!!. This is something new, so the code will be changing and maybe will facing possible issues - Please, reports any issue ^_^.

The documentation is outdated, so it will be updated as soon as possible

When is released the new version?

It seems that I left Soube... but I didn't. Actually, I'm working in the new version. I'm refactoring some things to make them faster and better :). My actual work is consuming too much time, but I haven't left Soube. For meanwhile, you can visit the project on github and go the develop branch where the things are cooking :) .

Articles about Soube

When I started Soube I was thinking: "how could I have a simple music player that could run on Linux". I know, there's tons of music players out of there for Linux. But don't get me wrong, They work great but they are so confusing to configurate and they have a lot of options that I don't use. Personally, I just need to load all my songs and have an equalizer system, just that. So as you may noticed, Soube was very personal.


The development was a great oportunity to work with new cool tools like ElectronJS, the Web Audio API and ES6. The journy was awesome, because I had to learn about Music & Sound; and I had to figure out how to solve some stuffs like the progress bar. I my job.


I never pretended to develop a great new piece of software. But since I released the first version, I've got really nice opinions and feedback. At this part, I want to say Thanks for writting about it, for taking your time testing it and for download it.
