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.
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.
If you're 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 * and a few more (checkout the build article for a full list)
More information can be gleaned from the Nightingale wiki:
Even though this source contains a debian/ folder, do not consider it as producing a release quality build. Further it will not work out of the box, see this section of the Linux building article.
