Default SoC: Linux GUI Client

Hello

I'm interested in the development of a Linux GUI for Ninjam. I thinking in a GUI with this ideas:

o C++
o GTKmm GUI
o GStreamer for audio files manipulation

I don't know current Ninjam architecture, but I think in a Arch. like:
Code:
 _______________         _________         _____________________
|Media Framework|<----->|libninjam|<----->|Native Clients       |
|-DirectShow    |       |-Standart|       |-MFC/Win32           |
|-Core Audio    |       | C++     |       |-Cocoa/OSX           |
|-Quicktime     |       | focus on|       |-GTK+/GNOME          |
|-GStreamer     |       | Portabi-|       |-QT/KDE              |
|-Helix         |       | lity    |       |-¿wxWigets?          |
 ---------------         ---------         ---------------------
What do you say?

NINJAM is already architected with a portable design, such that it can use ASIO/Win32/CoreAudio/ALSA/JACK/etc for audio, and interface with native GUIs running wherever. So really if you were to do a GTK UI, you would be building the GTK UI, as well as perhaps extending the ALSA/JACK drivers to be more easily configured via GUI...

Default read the source, luke

Well...one way, is that you can read the source.
You can clearly see that some "sane" things are already in play with respect to architecture since there are linux and windows clients within the same codebase.
see www.ninjam.com/download.php

Default gtk gui

Hi,
I am currently hacking together a ninjam gtk gui for linux using glade. For now the gui is far from being finished, since I also do not have much time currently:-(.
I also modified the sources of the client/server to be a shared library to make development outside the ninjam source tree possible and to have a single backend code base for the client and the server;-). If anyone is interested in that modification I can upload the source code and debian/ubuntu packages to my homepage.

MfG
Tobias

This sounds real helpful.
Can you post the code?

There were some recent posts of changes for OSX
and Linux Jack source changes. Down the road, it would
be great if this all fit together somehow.
