How does cmod3 work?

cmod3 is entirely written in Javascript, works on node-webkit (nwjs) and uses libopenmpt compiled with emscripten plus closure-compiler. The user interface is based on bootstrap and angular is the framework of choice. Despite all that, and after some hard work, it performs really well.

Things yet to do

  • Settings are not being saved yet.
  • Keyboard shortcuts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and mediakeys).
  • Volume control using a GainNode.
  • Choose a Nectarine stream among a list of streams.
  • Adding an AnalyserNode could enable VU meter for nectarine.
  • More playlist features.
  • Can you draw? An nice app icon is needed.
  • Audio is being decoded on the main thread, which is not ideal, it should be done on a background worker/thread (not possible afaik, any idea? Audio Workers issue:
  • New ideas? Open an Issue.
