I didn't contribute as much as to airsonic, but I still did the following:
- Adding a systemd and an openrc units
- Simplified the ffmpeg related code
- Added a bunch of linters
- Minor reliability and tests improvements
- Did the French translation
I plan to continue to fix the issues I might run into and do some code-review, likely security-related, and stop altogether to care about airsonic.
I'm currently running it flawlessly on a super-small VM, with 128MB of RAM and a single CPU, on a library of ~1500 albums for ~400 artists. The scanning time took a couple of minutes for the first run, but the incremental ones are now almost instantaneous. There are likely some missing features compared to airsonic, but I didn't notice anything too annoying.
