Been tracking most of my progress from the past few days here:

That being said, here’s a brief synopsis:

  • Successfully requesting tracking permissions from the user, allowing us to publish on Apple Mac Store, as we use cookies to log users in, etc.
  • Many fixes for the Status Bar and getting the color to match device preference and look good with both light and dark modes on the Resonate UI
  • Public TestFlight for iOS available: Join the Resonate Co-op beta - TestFlight - Apple
  • Internal Testing for Android available: Anmelden – Google Konten
  • Improved UX and iOS Cookie Policy text to be clear and to the point
  • A potential solution to appropriate metadata lacking in Now Playing/Control Center on iOS, not to mention enhancement to the web player itself

  • Submitted build 1.1.0 to Android and Apple stores per latest feedback for the React Native WebView app, fixing shared cookies which could keep users logged in even after they’d logged out
  • Added issues to https://github.com/resonatecoop/stream based on feedback from the forum
  • Tried to figure out how to hide the login button for users already on login page (beta/src/components/header/index.ts L220 should be the spot to do it, but window and location are undefined in that area of code it seems)

It’s been a very involved week over here. Here’s a shortlist of some accomplishments:

And here are some more recently submitted but not yet merged solutions (some may need a bit more review before being merged, not sure):

  • Pressing a track’s title plays/pauses track, clicking artist goes to artist page - I’m really, really excited about this change. This also changes your cursor to a column resize pointer for the track seeker (changing the time of the currently playing track), and a row resize pointer for the volume controller (informing the user which way to move the mouse to affect the control, be it vertical or horizontal).
  • Notify user when credits are low per some community feedback, a nice little indicator to let folks know they’re previewing the current track because they’re low on credits.
  • Clicking tag in search toggles search off - this is another huge improvement, especially for mobile, but also for desktop, and makes the search bar behave way more like you would expect it to. This also improves the “hit box” for the search box drastically, augmenting the area vertically and horizontally a user can click to get back in and use the search box again.

Worker Retrospective and Finance Team sessions monday - 3 hours

Hey all, checking in with a few updates:

  • We’ve received a bunch of great feedback for the Minimal Android and iOS react-native-webview stream-app and I’ve responded. One great thing about this is the majority of the feedback is things that we’ve figured out how to fix and were already set to be taken live soon (fixes for the web player, which will then fix things for mobile web browser users and the users of the stream-app).
  • We’ve created GitHub project boards for a lot of our highly active main focuses (at least the ones that I know enough about to organize):

Project boards enable a lot of features, including automation. Newly created issues are automatically added to the To do column, are moved to the In progress column when a pull request is linked and/or if review is requested. They move to the Done column after the pull request’s code is merged, automatically closing the linked issue.

They can also give everyone involved a clue as to what’s being currently worked on, where our current priorities are (typically higher priority items would be moved up to the top of the column). Also, it’s rewarding and encouraging watching the Done column outweigh the columns further to its left, and more properly celebrates our accomplishments. :grinning:

With respect to the the web player, we merged a good bit of fixes in the past week that fix arrow icon sizes and hid the notification settings on iOS, since the setting didn’t do anything (unsupported by Safari).

Development on the beam player is moving quickly as well. With respect to feature parity, it exceeds the web player in some ways, and I’m really enjoying how responsive it is on my machine.
