ANNOUNCEMENT: Mopidy Mobile 1.7.0

[Cross-posted from https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mopidy/z9FTkAOAwME].

Mopidy Mobile aims to be a simple, easy to use remote that lets you fully control a Mopidy music server from your mobile device. It is available as a Web client extension and a hybrid app for Android version 4.4 and higher. Users of older Android versions may still access the Web extension using Google’s Chrome browser. On Apple devices, the Web client should work with iOS 7 or higher.

In a nutshell, Mopidy Mobile lets you

  • Browse and search your entire Mopidy music library.
  • Search within selected directories only.
  • Edit the tracks in the current tracklist.
  • Create and edit playlists (requires Mopidy server v1.x).
  • Download cover art from selected online resources.

Mopidy Mobile’s user interface comes with both light and dark themes to match your mood, and so far has been translated to English, German, Spanish and Catalan. Last but not least, it also features a beloved 80’s arcade game character icon to represent Mopidy’s consume mode.

The biggest (and maybe most controversial) change in version 1.7.0 is probably the introduction of request timeouts. Although there is no way to really “cancel” or “abort” a long-running Mopidy backend request, this may improve usability a lot if you suffer from network-related issues, for example. It’s still a somewhat experimental feature, so your feedback would be appreciated.

The Web extension is available from PyPi , the Android app should be available from Google Play store, and source code is available on GitHub.

Enjoy,
Thomas

So does this extension display a webpage also, or just access for an app? I just installed it to have a quick look but although mopidy says it’s loaded, I see no web page? Maybe I am looking in the wrong place.

Well, yes :wink: What DO you see? Pointing your browser at port 6680 of your Mopidy machine should give a list of installed Web clientts like this:

Ok. I had mopidy listening on 127.0.0.1 only, so now that I made the configurations as they should have been done in the first place to begin with, it works nice. What is to like about this interface is that it is really efficient, as in lightweight but functional.

Well, thanks! That pretty much sums up MoMo’s goals :wink:
