Bug Description

For remote controlling exaile from dockapps, docklets or else, the provided dbus interface is fine.
However, cleints need to poll the interface in second intervals to get notified of:
- Track changes
- State changes (play/pause/stop)

Please add these signals, they need not have any parameters.

Caio, your branch 'just works'.

However, the mainline DBus bindings seems to have undergone a major overhaul.

Could you re-merge?

re-opening since it seems that branch never actually got merged. branch is also woefully out of date so cant be merged to trunk as-is.

branch has a couple of problems:

 * in GetTrackAttr, you access Track.tags directly. Please use Track.get_tag_raw instead.
 * you have various modules in Exaile calling into the dbus module directly to send the signals - please don't do this since it makes those module harddep on dbus. Instead, those modules should send events when appropriate, and dbus should catch those events and fire its signals from those.

Thanks Aren,

I think I have it now:

using get_tag_raw.

xldbus.py is now self-contained so that it subscribes to the global events like the main window does.
(this needs to reorder initialization of xldbus after self.__init in xl/main.py.)


reacocard (reacocard) wrote :

You cannot reorder dbus in init, since we have to have it as early as possible in order to do single-instance stuff. I would just call _connect_signals after the main part of Exaile is inited and leave the main dbus initialization in its current position. Other than that it's looking pretty good.

Thanks again, fixed.

Please merge if OK.

fixed in trunk/2725

also, please don't set state to fix committed until its fixed in trunk - separate branches don't count.
