v18 Help!- Music Browsing Broken
#1
I'm new to Kodi and so far it looks pretty great!

However, I am worried that the web interface Chorus has been broken for months, and it seems as if nobody on this forum knows how to fix it.

Has the original developer(s) moved on? I have no idea.

I am willing to help try to push this forward — I have worked with JavaScript before — but I need some guidance.

The web browser debugger reports errors and could be used to diagnose the problems, but the JavaScript source has been minimized and is difficult to make sense of.

Trying to get the full sources, I looked in the Chorus2 repository, but there is only minimal documentation, and it assumes familiarity with Sass, Grunt, Bundler, rpm, etc. — it's too much.

I found some instructions for downloading and installing Chorus2 as an add-on, but I cannot get them to work.

Could somebody help with this?

Hello @mrob

Unfortunately you haven't stated what the problem is. It works fine for me.

I think this is where the confusion may be. There is nothing to download. Enable it in Settings and then point your browser to the correct local address... Settings/Services/Control (wiki)

Also... Web_interface (wiki)

Sorry to not explain it clearly.

I have the web interface working, it is enabled in Kodi.

The problem is that browsing music is broken with v18 of Kodi. This is described in the threads to which I linked.

The problem for trying to debug this is that the web UI is served as minimized JavaScript.

I want the full JavaScript sources to be served to the web browser, so that I can try to debug the problems with browsing music.

Ok. There has been some recent work done on Music and JSON. It is possible there are some glitches there.

Maybe @DaveBlake can help out if you give exact details of the problem, or provide the link to your report.

There was a breaking change to the JSON API back in Nov 2017, and Chorus 2 has not yet been updated to work fully with the JSON schema for v18. The "glitch" is in the addon.

From logs the call causing the problem is how Chorus calls Audiolibrary::GetAlbums, it is using the wrong parameters.

Thanks for the clarification and link!

I'm thinking that since the call just has the wrong parameters, maybe(?) it's not so difficult to fix this.

But I need to be able to debug from the full sources.

Any suggestions?
