Working tree for the community fork of Songbird, Nightingale. If building, use the sb-trunk-oldxul (development) branch, with the tag 1.12.1 tag for stable, for now. The master-xul-9.0.1 branch is the current progress in building Nightingale with XULRunner 9 and builds, but is broken. All help in terms of patches and pull requests is welcome.

README

Nightingale is a community based fork of the Songbird Media player
distributed under the GNU GPL and portions (XULRunner and Mozilla libs)
licensed under the Mozilla MPL/BSD license. 

The goal of Nightingale is to create a Media Player, which will 
eventually use only system libraries to conserve space. Currently, some
libraries are still bundled, but progress is being made to change this 
fact.

This git tree is the Songbird trunk, rebranded for Nightingale. It's a 
reflection of what our Xul 6+ releases will be like.

========================================================================
Notes:
========================================================================

*To build, you need to have all of the gstreamer0.10 packages for your 
distro, svn, wget, and git (if pulling the tree down) installed, 
as well as the usual dependencies for building software upon your 
distro.

*If it gets python errors, make sure you have python2 installed,
and try the build.sh script again.

*If it doesn't play music, you'll need to copy /usr/lib/gstreamer0.10/*
into compiled-dist-linux-[your arch]/dist/gst-plugins and then 
rerun nightingale. It should then play music.

========================================================================
Building:
========================================================================
If on Linux, simply run the build.sh script. It will download the deps
and build the app for you. You'll generally need the usual build deps
for most software packages, though.

Ubuntu and Debian users should note you'll need:
libdbus-glib-1-dev
libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev

To build components for integration with Unity's sound menu you need:
libunity-dev
libnotify-dev
libgtk2.0-dev

To enable building the extension, add

ac_add_options --enable-unity-integration

to nightingale.config
