Life is like an endlessly recursive fractal of perverse pain and suffering.

[JuK] Am I working?

Yes, I am. I’ve been trying to port the trackpicker to Qt4. Sadly, I realized that the MusicBrianz / TunePimp implementation isn’t working at all.

Due to the reason that libtunepimp is depreciated for ages now, and even musicbrainz2 is, I decided to give it a shot and make a test application.

I today implemented a basic interface and backend which can handle the data. I’m now reading into libmusicbrainz[2|3], to create a working implementation for both.

I’ve done all this in a test application, not in JuK, since JuK will make it even more complicated than it is. I’ve plans on implementing both, as it is with libtunepimp, it will be with musicbrainz[2|3] in future, but with the same API on our side, implemented in two different C++ libraries. This will make the JuK code easier to read on this part.

Why musicbrainz2? Simply, most distributions ship with libmusicbrainz2 (musicbrainz3 is not in the main repositories in most distributions), what forces me somewhat doing that as well.

To be heared (soon) of.
