[WIP] HTPC-Manager Beta, Manage XBMC, Sabnzbd, SickBeard with one app

You mean why most of the page data is not rendered in python (serverside) but in the browser (client side)? This probably is for two reasons.

1. Htpc manager does not depends on 3rd party software when serving a page. The data is provided by various api's, which is always slower than accessing a datasource directly. By using ajax to collect the data, in most cases the experience is faster. Also, in case an api connection is not working of over the internet and therefore slow, i would rather wait on a nice spinner telling me 'loading tv shows' for a few seconds, than my browser waiting/hanging on the initial request.

2. When doing things like paging, or auto-refresh, javascript seemed the way to go. Loading which song is playing in xbmc or updating the sabnzbd status every 5 seconds.

I would like to build the entire page server side, but there were just too much things that did not feel right due to the api connections.

Thanks for the feedback. I just started adding support for qbittorrent. Should be ready over the weekend.

Any tips on how i can get two input fields to show on the correct side?

Its working correctly on desktop version using float: right; and float: left;. But when i check my tab the damn fields is just sits next to eachother.. Big Grin

The answear was to add a class pull-left and pull right to the items instead of css.

Hi styxit.

Another idea/request I've got is to choose a background color for PVR logos.
Some of my channels logos are grayish and partially transparent which isn't an issue on XBMC gui bit does on HTPC-Manager.
Here's an example.

The Pvr section has been created by someone else. by mbw2001 to be exact. I have never used the pvr section for htpc manager. I also do not use pvr and even do not know how it works. So i can not really help you out because i can not test anything.

If there is someone who would like to improve this and work on it, i am more than happy to accept any pull requests regarding this issue.

Thanks styxit.

If you will want in the future to test the pvr functionality then you can use the playlist linked in my signature (also use the logos) with IPTVSimple.
IPTVSimple included in the latest Gotham alpha builds and doesn't need a pvr backend.
You will want to remove the tag radio="true" so the stations will list as tv channels.

Social sharing!

To get the Htpc Manager community a little more active and to let more people know about Htpc Manager i added Social buttons to the Htpc Manager website.
Pleas help me spread the word by sharing, tweeting, HackerNews+ or whatever you can think of. This would benefit the development of Htpc manager because hopefully, more people will get involved! Visit http://htpc.io to find the social-share buttons.

Thank you!

Good news, NzbDrone has now released a Linux app. See this link http://www.nzbdrone.com/
It really would be great if NzbDrone was incorporated into HTPC-Manager

Hi, I still have this installed but gave up on it when the images didn't work no matter what I tried. Anyone any ideas on where I start?

Htpc Manager can also show the images without PIL. Are you using the latest version of Htpc Manager? Please re-download and test. I have a windows system where i completely removed PIL and the images still work. You might get a warning about missing PIL and that images could load really slow, but they should work, even without Pil. Try uninstalling PIL and using HTPC Manager without PIL.

opacity on images and resizing might not work, but at least you can view covers.

If you use the internal update function from within HtpcManager, make sure you restart htpc manager after a successfull update. But to be sure, in your case i would do a fresh download or a git- pull. Let me know if this works for you.

Removed PIL and did an overwrite with latest GIT and it's working fine now.

Thanks for this great thing, I'm creating a few modules myself for my up and coming home automation setup that my htpc is controlling, I was also thinking of creating a boblight module for some basic led control, but hey, we'll see. Big Grin I guess this tellstick thing isn't very widely used outside sweden so inclusion into htpc-manager doesn't make much sense though. Big Grin
