Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

@watsonalgas
Meanwhile I would very much value your experience and your opinion if you keep on using m over lizzy: I want to improve and optimize every little bit of the workflow in lizzy.

you can select '/', as long as you don't type a filter string. Am I clear?

or, if you have this line in your profile in ~/.local/share/lizzy/config.ini

libraryIsSlash = no

then simply press [^a] when on left pane.
Again, am I clear?

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

I meant to just simply type "m -o hello" and it would play the first match, so yeah, the command line without going into the program.

What I like about "m" is the speed of just typing and it'll play it, fast.  I like lizzy too, I just usually have something specific I want to play and don't need to look at a list.

On another note, when I type on the search line and hit backspace, it does nothing.  I have to use a back arrow and hit delete to be able to delete what I typed.  Am I doing something wrong?

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

Thanks for your return, @watsonalgas!
You're doing nothing wrong but I must be.
If backspace don't work, you must have never seen the like of this screen, one of the two features I wanted bad enough to write lizzy.

Please help me debug this:

  • What locale do you use?

  • Can you uncomment lines 611 to 614 (inclusive), and press backspace in lizzy: which key is reported at the top? Does your filter-pattern string get altered in any way?

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

I just flashed:
this certainly is a problem of "backspace terminal convention".... let off my question about the locale:
if you would just tell me the name of your terminal, and the key returned when uncommenting lines 611 to 614 (inclusive), and pressing backspace....
Thanks

edit: "your terminal" -> "the name of your terminal'

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

You're right, I've never seen that screen.  The key returned is ^?

I'm using tmux within urxvtc.

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

OK, this should work now?! (version 2018.10.5)
Again, thanks @watsonalgas for reporting. There indeed was a backspace compatibility issue.
I installed xfce4-terminal because I know it can emulate multiple terminal types, but I didn't even have to go and play with them: the default config showed this bug:
I guess it affected all vte-based terminals also... Simple but nasty bug.

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

Yeah, that works now.

It looks like .jpg files are shown in the results list, though.

Re: lizzy (music player) python script that feeds your music to mpv

Yeah, the "excluded extensions" are just not added with their parent directory, but should you select a file, it works...
At least that is the actual behaviour.

Maybe I'll consider changing this: adding per profile extensions (or banned extensions)...
I don't know if some use lizzy as an image viewer in conjunction with mpv-image-viewer?
My images are mostly my camera photos, never renamed, I don't use mpv-image-viewer, and though I don't rely on musics id3 tags, I still rely on pictures metadata for search: lizzy is no-go for me here.
I still have to think those workflow through.
