New version, upgrade servify too!
-Soft volume control
I've spent a bit of time packaging the jReSpot application - so here it is! Download and run (double click the jar file on most OS's, otherwise start with "java -jar jrespot_alpha.jar").
Servify update recommended!
Please know that it's still riddled with bugs and inconsistencies, though it works rather well if you're patient...
You may need to 'hammer' the Refresh Playlist button sometimes, and the playlist list does not have a scrollbar - but you can scroll up&down with the arrow keys...
There will be improvements made. I've only had the opportunity to try this on a Windows computer. Please let me know if you're facing issues on Linux / Mac!
aReSpot has got a facelift, now supports CoverArt. ReSpot will be continously updated in the near future with more face lifts and feature additions. There's a few kinks to weed out still too I'm sure. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have bugs to report, features to request or anything else. There are discussion 'groups' available on the ReSpot Facebook page too.
IMPORTANT: Volume adjustment is available by the volume 'hardware keys' on your android. I will re-integrate a volume button on screen but have not decided how/where to put it yet.
jReSpot will soon be released as an EARLY ALPHA. Lot's of things are not working - there are multiple 'paper cuts' in the UI etc. But improvements will be coming down the pipeline soon enough. Stay tuned.
The Servify protocol has been completely re-written and now uses JSON. This has simplified things alot when writing clients.
Servify has been somewhat simplified to start, it's now optional to put login credentials on the command line - if not supplied Servify will ask for them.
A issue that's been stopping the new version of aReSpot and the release of jReSpot has (most likely!) been resolved.
Big thanks to my friend for help with debugging.
Stay tuned. Release imminent! 😀
