Brother John’s Projects: Foobar2000 Scripting
Normally we don’t distinguish between a Tagz script and a complete design. But actually a design is a whole suite of scripts performing different operations and partly interacting. Creating a complete Columns UI design is a complex task. Therefore we’ll approach it in several stages, starting with a very basic layout and adding more and more bits and pieces until we have a complete and fully working design for Foobar2000 0.9.
I’m sure before you spend some hours of even days scripting, you would very much like to have a look at the final outcome first. Okay. Here is a screenshot of the finished design, which I named Dark Connections (you can also download it).
The whole thing was inspired by a dark red and black Visual Style and wallpaper I combined two or three years ago. Look at a screenshot of the whole desktop with Foobar2000 running.
I love it! :) The Visual Style is Tribute2 by LightStar. The wallpaper is called Remote Retriever but unfortunately I’m completely at a loss where I got it. Any info on that matter is highly appreciated! Please don’t ask for the file. I won’t redistribute it without the artist’s consent.
Another important note: Dark Connections is not intended to work out of the box for a majority of users. You are more than welcome to use it, but expect making some changes to the scripts and tag fields to suit your personal needs.
Here is a brief outline of what we’re going to do.
Now enough of the introduction. Fire up your Foobar2000 and get ready.
