Another month has passed. Nakamori development have been paused because of limitation that server hit. I will try to finish other project that could benefit Nakamori in any way.
The Language translation project was a semi-success, I was hoping for 2-3 languages more but I know that the community of Nakamori users ain’t that much connected – I don’t mind, I try to reach you guys how much I can – “What’s new” popup, and that is ok.
I don’t want to spy/spam you.
If anyone would like to contribute to translation project here is the link: https://poeditor.com/join/project/vAOV2zSrNK
Shoko is getting very big revamp right now. But after those we will finally be moving with speed of light. When Shoko will be “stable”, soon™.
Also I narrow problem with sorting inside Kodi and it looks like this is something way older than I though it is – I made a fix for skin, but Team-Kodi argue that this should be handle inside Kodi core – which is great news, because we want to use as much Kodi functionality in our Addon as possible !
Finally, with ShokoDesktop2 [github.com], btw. what’s with that name O_o, Shoko is moving in right direction. Server few days ago hit magical 220.127.116.11 version which promise many features but not many went into that build. Many people contribute to this project and with all strength in my heart I wish it will still be the best in what it does best – anime collection organization. To be honest the project currently is going thru a little circle with few things but until it’s doing the things it need to its not bad.
There is almost non alternative to ShokoAnime 🙂 if there is ‘alternative’ it end up being a anime list software. ShokoAnime is ambitious project I could compare it to AniDB scale of ambitious, that’s why it is so good.
We still use stable Kodi release that use Python 2.7 (17.x branch) but Im looking forward because there is Kodi 18.x version with Python 3.x integration and Kodi 19.x will ship with Python 3.x. It will be great thing because as much as Kodi does what it should does (do one thing but do it good) it don’t recieve any new updates and unlocking python potential could help with it. Some time ago I started to rewriting Nakamori to support Python3 and it was a success. Any ideas what would you like to see next in Nakamori or Kodi ?
As some of you probably saw already. Shokunin (and Nakamori repo) is supporting ipv6 🙂
It is not something that most of you waited for but it wont hurt to support it.
Nakamori can be as great Users need to be! But we need your feedback!
If something is missing, if you want to see a improvement – tell us !
Also, sorry for no updates but Shoko developing became so stale that its not moving much on surface and I wouldn’t like to push updates for not released versions 🙂
It was always my goal to push JMM (now Shoko) in direction that would end up as really cross platform application that would benefit user on any setup. I had my better and worst days. Had a lot of fights and dramas… but in the long run it was worth the trouble. Each time we were closer and closer. Most people would only request this but most dev would put it somewhere on wait list till everything other would be done. Thanks to those steps and mostly thanks to Cazzar and his time he pull it to the end. I need to credit him because he took the time and pull it all to the end. No matter how many steps were made before be is the one that pull it together – and did great job.
Now we are able to run Shoko in docker and it work great with mono on most platforms.
There is still a lot to do, but this is great thing that I was waiting for long time (not only me).
Also you can find manual about running it on: http://docs.shokoanime.com/server/install_linux.html
It’s been some time when I could start working with new version of Shoko.
The good news is that Shoko is closer and closer to being able to run on Linux machines. It good to see that someone else care enough to push project in that direction.
To bad it taking so much time as there is more and more added functionality that is only usable in developer version of Shoko.
But still, they doing great job.
