It will never end, but...

 

Technical optimizations and improvements, new features, ideas and possibilites - it will never be finished, especially on the net.

But: we have reached a point where we passed the inital setup and even have set a pretty good standard for ourselves:

  • NINJAM ist running
  • documentation has been set up
  • the clients have been installed and tested
  • there is a space where all recordings are stored
  • and made available to the participants after the session

Now could and should be the time to use it for what it was intended: make music, perhaps even good music...

Archive of NINJAM sessions


Archive of NINJAM sessions

An archive with the recordings of the sessions on our NINJAM-server is now available.

The session-recordings of the sessions from the previous day are automatically collected each night, packed into one ZIP-file and also automatically uploaded here.

There is no manual preselection in this process, so it is likely that there are many empty projects as every time someone connects to the empty server a new session is started. Interesting might be the ones that comprise of a couple of Megabytes of data.

To identify a special session check for the date and time which is reflected in the files name. 

The files from the archive can be downloaded and imported into REAPER by dragging the '.log'-file from the folder-structure into an REAPER-project-window.

Mac OS X automation

Notes collection in regard to automation of tasks under Mac OS X 10.something added.

The goal here is to make the NINJAM- server as autonomous as possible, initially with tasks like

  • launching services after reboot
  • collecting recodings of previous day
  • packing the NINJAM-folder structure of recordings into one file
  • move the file to public archive
  • maintain recording originals for a while, but
  • keep server-storage free for new recordings

At the same time considerations moving the NINJAM-Server to a simple Raspberry Pi 4B with larger storage attached, as the NINJAM on Linux has a few more features attached - like private rooms (which we not necessarily need), moderaters message (uhm -hmm?), perhaps voting system (seems to have been removed from the current version).

A test-compile of the server on a Raspberry Pi went smoothly and seemed to perform very nicely.
