Is this article confusing you? If you have followed what I said thus far, congratulations you are a geek! If you are completely lost, even better! Welcome to my world of modern software development!
The whole point of SnakeoilOS is you do not have to know and learn all these things. The aim of SnakeoilOS is to shield you from all these computer/geek stuffs. All you need to know is to learn how to:
- Setup your music library
- Play music
- Tweak and customise SnakeoilOS to get the best out of your audio system
That is all. Everything else leave it to the Snakeoil Squad.
The plan is to spend 12 months to develop Snakeoil 1.0.0. Thanks to the use of ESXi, GIT, MantisBT, NodeJS, Angular and RESTful - it is nearly finished in just three months. May not seem like much, but for me personally the move to 1.0.0 is very ambitious - almost suicidal really. A lot of software projects have crashed and burned due to poor management or poor planning (e.g. Mantl, Corral, MontageJS).
Choosing the tools required for this project requires some experience, a bit of luck and a lot of research. Yes, a lot of research, lots and lots of research.
If you are interested to see what the new SnakeoilOS is like, download the preview edition in the forums and have a try now. Already I’m liking the audio quality the preview is bringing.
The best is yet to come.
