- Fix dark mode background color in player controls area
If you encounter any problems, please let me know.
Recently I had been getting reports that the playlist wasn’t saved properly but I couldn’t reproduce this error. I added tons of extra logging and asked people to send me log files.
Here’s what I discovered:
It should be fixed now. Takeaways:
Also new in this version: simple feedback form. Open Preferences → Feedback and let me know what’s on your mind. You can attach the application log file & preferences with a simple checkbox.
Happy Ho ho.
I’m happy to announce Tiny Player for Mac version 1.6.0. The headline feature of this release is Quick search. Here’s how it works:
As always, if you like the app, you can buy me a coffee. Thanks!
Bonus tip: double click a file in search results to select all from the same folder.
Tiny Player for Mac version 1.5.9 is out now. I have optimized the loading of playlist items and metadata. This improves the responsiveness of the app when loading many files at once.
Tiny Player version 1.5.1 is out now on iOS. This update brings one new feature: you can drag down the playback controls area to reveal and resize the cover image.
It took a lot of time & effort but it was a necessary step and I’m happy with how it went.
Generally I wanted to keep the app working at the end of each programming session. I started with a few refactorings of the Objective-C code that I knew would make things easier later. Then I rewrote the smaller components and worked my way up to the main view controllers. Those took the most effort and multiple nights to complete.
In the iOS app, there are about 300 lines of Objective-C left, which I’m probably going to keep. They make interfacing with the C-based HTTP server a bit easier. I got rid of the C++ HTML templating code and replaced it with a simpler Swift version because it’s easier to integrate with the rest of the new code base.
The Mac app is 100% Swift, plain and simple. It felt quite nice completing the last bit and deleting all the @objc attributes.
I’m currently testing both apps, looking for regressions. The first release based on this new codebase probably won’t contain any major user-facing changes. However, the rewrite opens the door to new features and performance & reliability improvements in the future.
Tiny Player for Mac version 1.4.3 is out now. This update brings back the flat icon, adds ability to click right time indicator to toggle remaining/total track time and 1 bugfix.
