Nuvola Apps
Cloud music integration for your Linux desktop

Fundraiser October 2016

This is my monthly report for generous patrons who contributed €171.44 to support the development of Nuvola Player in September 2016. Thanks to them, I put aside €6 for the VPS hosting and spent over 12 hours working on four tasks, which are listed bellow with a few comments, so my reward was €13.12 per hour. However, I didn't count support requests which were dealt with for free.

You can support my work on Nuvola Player via PayPal, Gratipay, Patreon, Flattr or Bitcoin. Let's make Nuvola Player more awesome!

Thank you!

Amazon Cloud Player 5.2

Date: Oct. 22, 2016, 4:42 p.m. • Work time: 1.20 hours • Spent funds: €18.00

I've adopted the abandoned Amazon Cloud Player script originally created by Stephen Herbein and released version 5.2 with the following fixes:

  • New maintainer: Jiří Janoušek.
  • Added a complete icon set.
  • Added a license field to metadata.json.
  • Script now doesn't assume that it is always executed before a basic structure of a web page is loaded. This isn't guaranteed and it leads to an incompatibility with Nuvola Player 3.0.3.
  • Added information about contributing to the script.
  • Adapted to the change of Amazon Music address. Issue: tiliado/nuvola-app-amazon-cloud-player#13
  • Track info parsing has been fixed. Issue: tiliado/nuvola-app-amazon-cloud-player#17
