As we all know open source programmers struggle with getting anything in return for their software.
Maybe you can support me as well so that I can work on my Linux Audio software.
That would be fine!
I have decided to skip Laborejo 1.0, stop working on it and instead do the "single worst strategic mistake that any software any software company can make: They decided to rewrite the code from scratch."
Work on Laborejo 2.0 has started. The vision stays the same: A notation based sequencer with strong Lilypond connections.
But I have learned many things about using, writing and designing software in the last two years, by doing Laborejo, LisaloQt and other stuff. And I can't stand working with the huge mistakes I've made in the Laborejo-Core anymore. It makes the program slow and overly complex.
The new core which I finished more or less right now is a different thing. Half the lines of code, orders of magnitude more speed, and that is without any optimisation. I have still a palettte of tricks and tweaks I learned from Laborejo1 which can still be applied to the new code.
That said, of course I consider it not a mistake to start a new codebase. Once I get to the high level stuff again I can copy and paste many functions.
Whats in for you and how do you get it?
Right now the repository is private and unusable outside of my system (hardcoded paths etc.).
What you get is a faster and more robust program, which is also prettier, that runs with fewer dependencies and still doesn't get in your way.
The same as before, just better.
