That looks really nice - but it would be even nicer, if I could use it
with an LMS server which is running on a different machine. Any chance
of adding this?
Ha! It's certainly something I've been thinking about - because I'm not
running my LMS on the Mac. I only implemented this as a POC and to get
an understanding of BitBar. It's a tool I might be using for other
The problem with the "remote" server case is that it's a much more
complicated case. In the LMS on Mac case we have well defined paths, a
known environment. But with a remote server? How would we find it? How
would we restart a service on a remote Windows or Linux machine? A
BitBar plugin for a remote LMS would not be able to cover the feature
set I've demoed in the existing plugin. But it could of course feature
stuff like "now playing" information, basic player control etc. But
still, server discovery would be a problem, as those plugins are being
run in intervals, they're not kept in memory to eg. listen for LMS
instance discovery messages.
What kind of features would you like to see?
