Do

DoMusic

Registered by ZachG on 2008-06-04

There have been a number of music interface plugins written for Gnome Do, including Amarok, Rhythmbox, MPD etc. The unfortunate part is that each of these plugins exposes more or less the same set of features and who vary based mostly just on implementation of the 'music getting backend'.

It would be more convenient for all future do-plugins if this redundancy were eliminated by a common middle-layer abstraction of a music plugin in general. This pushes the responsibility of exposing all the right buttons and manipulation of the gnome-do interface to the middle layer plugin, and all music-plugin writers have to be concerned with is how to provide music; drastically simplifying the process.

Whiteboard

This is a good idea. We should do something to improve code reuse among these plugins. Let's try to do something for the Rhythmbox and new Banshee plugins.
