I have tried to translate to Polish some parts of the player - weather-config.txt and radio folder names under radio-stations folder. If you want to see the rest labels in Polish you need to translate/localize the file labels.properties. You can get the files which I prepared here:
https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy. ... Polish.zip
Just unzip it in the 'languages' folder. I grabbed radio playlists from the English-USA folder and left just one station in each genre just as an example.

If you will face any issue please let me know either here or via e-mail peppy.playerATgmail.com
Here are the screenshots with my partial translations:

Sure, if you will have complete translation and radio playlists for Polish web radio stations I could include it to the next version.

Hi peppy.player,

i'm running an older version of peppy and want to know, if the current version can manage a bluetooth speaker from within the GUI? I want to switch between "Line Out" and "Bluetooth" device and want to do pairing with new bluetooth speakers.

Is that possible - in the last version i had to edit the linux files (a mess).

Thanks,
Koepisch

Hi Koepisch,

Unfortunately Peppy player doesn't have UI for connecting Bluetooth devices. So right now it's a manual process:
https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy. ... th-Devices
Though I'm planning to add one. I hope that eventually the player will have UI for all required configuration settings including Password, Timezone, ALSA etc.

I'm at the cleanup and testing stage for the next Peppy software release (Cranach Edition). It still doesn't have Bluetooth UI. But in the release after Cranach Edition I'll try to add UI for Bluetooth devices (tentative date January-February 2020). The idea is to add Bluetooth to the Network screen. In that release I'm also planning to add ability to manage audio files collection and quickly search through it ( e.g. using voice commands).

Best Regards

Koepisch

Hi peppy.player,

that sounds great. The bluetooth configuration would be a huge step forward (for my needs). Today i begin to build my second peppy player! I'm very curious about the current edition too.

PS: I'm really impressed and deeply grateful. My second player works within Minutes - out of the box. For the first player i worked DAYS to get the 7" screen working. It seems that my GUI relations are reused in the new version - it looks like my first player, great!

So i can work on the details. I will use the default 7" frame, but build a new backend for the PI4, HifiBerry DAC+ Card and a slot for a slim powerbank. At my first version all of this was pressed into the default frame - never again.

Regards,
Koepisch

Hi Koepisch,

Your code for 7" display was used as the base in Peppy player. I made just some minor modifications to support sliding actions and long press. Your work was very helpful. Thanks a lot!

Also I tried to address your other requirements. For example the ability to change color theme. You can do that now through Config Web UI and select/adjust that Pinky color theme :)
Another change inspired by your work - show/hide folder names, now it's the configuration parameter (hide.folder.name). Next release will also have ability to define the number of items in menu through configuration parameters (rows, columns).
If you will have any other requirements/ideas feel free to contact me. That can be useful for other people as well.

Good luck with your new project. If you will decide to share it please let me know and I'll place it in the Gallery.
Best Regards!

Hi peppy.player,

it's really great that you add new features continuously. Nice to hear the row / column size will be configurable too. It seems, that i don't have to make any adapting changes to the code so far. Till now only one issue is left (but it's a non brainer). The cover picture size is too small when the screensaver kicks in (7" display). I thing i used a sizing factor which could control the picture size. That would be great seeing this in the config.

I have one issue with the volume/track position slider. The control freezes at some point - it happens a few times in my short test period. I thing it is an older problem. If i can re-activate my debug environment, i can localize the error source.

Thanks and regards,
koepisch

Hi Koepisch,

I believe you are talking about 'Logo' screensaver. If so, you can adjust the image size by changing configuration parameter 'vertical.size.percent' in the screensaver configuration file: /home/pi/Peppy/screensaver/logo/screensaver-config.txt. You can do that from the Config Web UI too. It's described here:
https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy.doc/wiki/Logo

If you will find the root cause of the volume/time slider issue please let me know. Just remember that you can not move sliders in the Pause mode. That's intentional.

Best Regards!
