Although Covid is busy gesticulating up and down One must still try to be a little positive(in thinking, not covid wise oo shocked)

About :-
Hymnary is simply a app with solfas for choir. None currently exist in play store and most of our choirs can not read sheet music....

Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 12:42pm On Mar 25, 2020
The Lyrics for the Hymns should be softworks smiley. But the solfas Chen ghen... ghen... About 2000 hymns so we need about 40 volunteers to give us atleast 50 solfas each.

Or the easy way....which is not very easy for me.... parsing midis!
Edit: to talk about it later...

Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 12:58pm On Mar 25, 2020

Application Layout


Hmm... First we have the splash screen.
1) Splash screen.

My love for splash screens is undying
A Splash screen is the first screen you see when you open and application. Usually containing the app name, ads or whatever the developer feels.

2) Song Menu
Next Screen would be the song menu where all the songs would be listed Alphabetically.

I will leave a small space above for
Passing information/notices to the users.

Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 8:44pm On Mar 25, 2020


There would be a bar to navigate to No. 4 and 5 which are the about and credit page

Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 8:51pm On Mar 25, 2020

No 3 is the main page
I plan using HTML for this one as they are more easy to manipulate.

parsingMidis1
codeigniter:
Parsing midi pls explain
Okay, I will assume you know nothing about midis, but if you do you may skip this part in blacks

Midis are like small ringtone files.
But unlike other audio files they don't actually contain sounds but rather information for playing them.

Think of them like short rude guys telling your computers thinks like "Abeg check piano for me in your sound bank, Play C4 and E4 for 2 seconds then play F3 and A4 for 1mins etc....

Which C4, E4 and others are various pitches.

Examples of midis are the link below.
Note: you must login to download.

#parsingMidis2

Okay, so because I'm ABCthingx. I got a bunch of this files from God-Knows-Where and I wonder if I can change them to solfas.
Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 10:24pm On Mar 25, 2020

First release of the app Hymnary v0.01 link below grin

Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 10:35pm On Mar 25, 2020

#parsingMidis3

But damn! Midis are binary files.
Meaning one will have to get messy with hexs and all those bitwise shifting >> to get meaning out of them.

I'm back the different might not seem much but it was a heck of a programming experience.

slow compile time and debugging like eternity mostly cause by little tiny codes.

e.g a five letter word like 'public' can ruin your whole day.

Although There is no new update but I must say I like what I'm see. And I'll focus on the front end more now smiley

The app doesn't work
Please which version did you download and what phone are you using?
Re: Project Hymnary ---- The Hymns Solfa App by ABCthingx: 1:04pm On Apr 17, 2020


Today I just realize how important the meter is so I'm going to make some changes to the app structure.

Lemme say a little more about the algorithm. Since I'm not a 'code expert' or a 'tech wizard' I expect you to understand. grin


First, like I have said before we have the splash screen, the song menu the about, and the credit page.

How the App work.

The SplashScreen is an activity on it own whose job is just to;

1) Display a Text
2) Count some time.
3) Open the SongMenu activity then
4) Quit

While the SongMenu has a kind of weird layout called frames still typing....

Sorry guys if it seems that I've a abandoned this project actually I've been working of the midi parsing part which right now I'm happy I can play around with the values.

Displaying them is now what I'm trying to solve. Meanwhile I think I want change certain things in the app. smiley
