Re: Request for pyjack to be included in pkg-multimedia

2011-03-04 Thread Filipe Lopes
hey there

I'm one of the maintainers of py-jack, and as you probably already noticed,
the project hasn't been updated in a while.
This is because I'm working on a new implementation of 'jack in python',
called jacklib.

This is a simple file that you can add to your source tree, and just do
'import jacklib'.
It uses ctypes to communicate with jack, and the API is indentical to the
one used in real jack (c code).

link - http://repo.or.cz/w/cadence.git/blob_plain/master:/src/jacklib.py

Packaging it is not a good idea, developers should just import the file and
use it, like this:

import jacklib
client = jacklib.client_open(name, jacklib.NullOption, 0)
jacklib.client_close(client)

It's possible to write real jack apps using this implementation (see
audio_plugin_test.py and xycontroller.py in the same repo)

 Sounds wrong.

Request for pyjack to be included in pkg-multimedia

2011-03-02 Thread info
Hi,

As always thanks and a big tip of the hat to all your efforts here, having
all of this great multimedia stuff in Debian is a dream come true.

I recently have been discussing JACK transport and JACK support with the
developers of the Openshot Video Editor who have made incredible strides
in Linux Video Editing. They are starting to examine ways to improve and
enhance the audio side of the app. One of the methods being discussed is
to incorporate JACK transport support which is also on the todo list at
KDEnlive. A key ingredient to making this happen is the 'pyjack' library
which is not currently packaged within Debian. This library has been
successfully used to lock transport with Ardour and Blender and the
Openshot developers have said having it available in Debian (and of course
Ubuntu) would be a big step in the right direction and would make it
available as a dependency instead of an obscure outside librsry. I think
the potential with Blender, KDEnlive and Openshot for development avenues
makes it worthwhile to look into. Of course as a member of this list but
not a maintainer it's easy for me to suggest without knowing exactly what
packaging it entails. I respectfully offer the suggestion for what it's
worth...

pyjack project is here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/py-jack/

What do you guys think??

Best Regards, Glen MacArthur - AV Linux maintainer,

Sure thing.  Sounds promising!

Please file an RFP bugreport against the pseudo-package WNPP, then - 
if noone else volunteers (I am involved in quite much already) I will be 
happy to help maintain it.

Thanks very much for your response and willingness to look into this when
you are so busy otherwise. I have filed a report and named the package
'python-jack' at which point the bugreport utility closed, I'm not sure if
this is normal or not, I will wait for email confirmation, if it hasn't
been filed properly I will make a second attempt.

Thanks again to you and the entire team. -GLEN
