I created the Volumio Orange theme, with this you will see the Cover / Play and Play queue on one screen, just like MoodeAudio. And all buttons at the bottom: Settings, Music Browsing, Playback, Queue (full), Volume (on / off).
I will soon distribute the Volumio_Orange.IMG theme so everyone can use it.
I’m a big fan of volumio and have many installations dotted around the house.
What I’d really appreciate is to have a UI optimised for a small touch screen. I currently use classic layout on a Osoyoo 5" @ 800x 480 and items I need to touch are very small. For example, settings icon, play on radio stations list etc. They are also positioned at the edges of the screen, which makes things tricky.
However, I’m thinking it’s difficult for you to have a one design fits all use cases.
Would it be difficult to implement skins? That way the community could come up with their own concepts and save you having to define for all. I’m old, so remember how winamp had great success with all it’s many themes and Kodi seems to benefit from this approach too. If it was just a case of editing graphics, html and CSS I’d have a crack at some skins myself to share back with the community.
