Submitted:  May 1 2005
Updated:  May 24 2007

Description:

Control AmaroK from any Firefox browser on your network.

This AmaroK script embeds a Firefox extension and a HTTP server


FEATURES:
- player manipulation: play, pause, stop, next, previous, seek, volume
- auto refreshing playlist view, plays a given track on click, can delete tracks
- collection browser with filtering, ordered by artist/album
- drag and drop tracks, album and artists to the playlist
- cover view for current track
- access restricted by login/password/IP address

The project developpement is now hosted on: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xul-amarok/
please go there to report bugs or wishes.


REQUIREMENTS:
- python >= 2.3
- pyqt (python QT bindings)
- AmaroK >= 1.4.3
- Firefox >= 1.5

INSTALL:
- Download the archive, then install and run it with AmaroK script manager
- On the first launch, you will be prompted for some parameters:
- interface(optional): the IP adress of your network interface the server will listen on (empty means all)
- port (required): you can leave 8888 as a default
- login/passwd (optional): if you wish to restrict access
- on any host on your network, launch firefox, go to http://amarok_host:8888 , and install the extension
- restart firefox
- launch "AmaroK remote" in the firefox "Tools" menu.
- set the options of the extension to match those on the server

NOTES:
If you get troubles with the configuration interface, you can use this sample xulremote.ini file:

[Debug]
debugajax = off
debugdcop = off

[HttpAuth]
passwd =
login =

[Hosts]
allowed =

[Listen]
interface = 127.0.0.1
port = 8888

of course replace 127.0.0.1 with the IP you want to listen on.

XUL support? Is this part of the project to port Gecko to QT?

Do you have a source or link that says they're officially including this in KDE 3.4?

i'm not sure, but i recall reading about this... xul is after all xml, isn't it? and the KDE apps already use xml for their interface, if i'm correct. well, its too long ago i read about this, maybe i should just shut up...

Well, it uses XUL XML for the interface, with HTML allowed in places, and Javascript for the scripting. I would expect that some apps call various Firefox features too.

XUL interfaces work with GTK, Win32 and OS X, rendered with native widgets (this is how Firefox's toolbars are rendered IIRC). On more themeable systems like GTK or Windows with a patched theme engine, the widgets manage to follow the theme fairly well, amd they can look OK-ish in GTK-QT, so it should be possible to port it without the apps having to be change. It might depend on Gecko for the HTML stuff though, not sure. I can't remember how much Firefox they're trying to port.

I wonder if it could theoretically be made into a sort of standalone system so that XUL apps could run without needing a whole browser running to support them; it could be used for some of the more trivial uses of Java.

if you wish to use it with firefox 1.0.5 or 1.0.6 you have to use the older 0.2 release available here:
http://botio.free.fr/xulremote-0.2.amarokscript.tar.gz

0.3 runs on firefox 1.5 (currently in beta)

Hi!

seems to be a great tool, but won't work on my machine yet...

I'm a bit desperate now.. I upgraded my Suse 9.2 to amarok 1.3, installed the kdebindings for python (kdebindings3-python-3.4.0), upgraded my firefox (windows-version) to 1.5, activated your script within amarok, but when i open the amarok remote extension in firefox I won't get anything but an empty screen with all the controls but no tracks an I can't control anything.

can you help?
by the way: which port should I use?

thx in advance,
Daniel

Hi,

you must use port 8888, the same that serves the extension.
If you can install the extension, it means that the script is running.

it should work with the same host/port you used for installing the extension, let me know if it doesn't.

thank you, it seems to work now!! (though I'm sure I tried port 8888 before, but ok..)

however, great tool!

One problem remains: I now have tracks in the playlist and can control the player, but still, there are no tracks in the collection browser, so I can't add any tracks to the playlist...

I think there is a bug, prefs are not taken in account until you re-launch the extension, so it doesn't work the first time you launch it. I'm going to fix that.

about the collection browser, can you tell me what database engine you're using?

now the collection browser works also, after some restarts of the extension. I guess it sometimes hangs because of bad networks performance or something.

Is it possible that collections (albums) , which have ä,ö or ü in their names, cant be opened in the collection browser?

This is a very useful application. I have some comments (I am using with Firefox 1.0.x):

1) A sentence or two about how to install the script and start it would be useful. I managed, but it was not obvious. A note in the README would help.

2) It is not obvious either that going to host:8888 applies only to the first time and that once the Firefox extensions is installed, one should go to the Tools menu.

3) The collection panel seem to have problems with foreign characters in album and/or song tiles.

4) Collection albums are organized differently in Amarok than in xulremote. Amarok places the corresponding songs under Various artists, but xulremote puts them at top-level. I find the Amarok solution more useful and it would be good if xulremote were consistent.

5) It is rather cumbersome how xulremote requires the dragging of *individual* songs to the playlist. I would be more convenient if it also allowed dragging album and artist to get the entire set in one shot.

6) Would it be possible to add volume control? My apologies if it is already there, I did not find it.

Thanks for your efforts

Gisli

Hi, I appreciate you find it useful. 1 - I didn't explained that, because it works like any other amaroK script, so i thought it was obvious. I'm going to add a note about this. 2 - I fully agree, I'm going to write that too 3 - that's a bug, I will fix it in next release. 4 - that's been improved in 0.3. 5 - that is in the todo list, I have to work on it. 6 - Yes you can! click on the status bar to seek and to set volume. unfortunately XUL has no slider widget, it would be useful in this case. thanks for your feedback!

Thanks for the volume control tip. This is wonderful.

I noticed one additional issue. When I make the a AmaroK remote window small, I can not separately grow the Collection side-bar. The left-right arrow appears when I clock the right border of the side-bar, but growing it is not possible.

Finally, one question. Will you be making enhancements only for Firefox 1.5.x, or will users of Firefox 1.0.x also see improvements?

Thanks again.

Gisli

this issue has been corrected in the 0.3 release, as part of layout enhancements.

unfortunately, I won't maintain a separate release for firefox 1.0.x, but I'm aware that a lot of people are still using 1.0.x.

the best solution would be to make it work with both 1.5 and 1.0.x, but some things have changed in firefox, the tree view behavior for example, and it won't be trivial. I'll have a look at this.
BTW, firefox 1.5 beta is very stable.

I look forward to trying your latest work, probably when Firefox 1.5.x finds its way into Debian Unstable.

Till then, thanks.

It was exactly what i seek for. I use it on my ibook and control amarok on my desktop.
One thing to wish list. Could you think about Camino package :D

I really like your simple layout.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
