Serial Port iPod Control Software
So, after finding nothing really useful for Linux (or Windows even) I have decided to create a GTK app for controlling my iPod via serial. So far I have the simple functionality working perfectly (Play/Pause, Vol, Skip.) I have started on the advanced functionality (playlists, shuffle, artists, album art, blah blah.)
The hardware is simple but custom (all the info is on ipodlinux.org, but I would repost links if desired.)
I'd love to see if anyone wants what I have when I get a little further. My goal is to have a daemon run that monitors a serial port to see if an iPod is plugged in through the dock connector, and then launch the application. It would emulate (some) of the user interface of the ipod through the app.
Fun stuff - learning a lot about Linux programming, esp GTK stuff. Also developing in parallel a command line utility that will do most of the same (same iPod control lib.)
Is there any interest in this around here?
