new BETA released

permalink   Tue, Dec 17, 2013 @ 11:10 PM
A very special thanks to go1dfish for doing a major overhaul on which is now in BETA. We’ve been struggling for months with the Yahoo player originally built into the site, that hasn’t been supported and that we’ve been hacking repeatedly. go1dfish built the new Dig site entirely on the ccMixter API. That’s about as technical as I get, but I’m sure he and Admiral Bob can share even more techie details with ya’ll. Thank you again go1dfish!

The new dig ccMixter frontend is entirely powered of the ccMixter Query API 2.0 and is all static js/html files.

The project is hosted at github now if you’re interested in contributing: Patches welcome

It’s a complete rewrite in Ember.js that attempts to be faithful to the original functionality and visual design.

If you run into any problems let me know.

It will likely bring IE8 and earlier to it’s knees; I haven’t tried it yet myself; but it should at least work in newer IE’s

Also it now supports HTML5 playback in addition to flash; so the site should be usable on tablets that support HTML5 (technically phones as well but the layout is not well suited to it)

This no longer works:


We have this address+query well circulated.

Search/dig on “texasradiofish” returns more than “by texasradiofish”. Remixes of texasradiofish are listed as well.

What’s the equivalent of /dig?user=texasradiofish

Can we get it back?

Thanks, TRF

Browser is Chrome

Thanks for pointing this out.

The new equivalent is:

I’ll see if I can get a redirect setup.

Ok general redirect in place.

Please do use the new form when possible though.

starting from

and entering

the resulting

contains remix authored by TRF and others.

Is that the intent of the query?
Is there a way to select author only or all BY remixes?

In the UI, the only way to get to a user specific view currently is to click on someone’s name after the “by ” for the track.

This will take you to a url like this:

If you then select “Free for commercial use” it will limit to cc by and other permissive licenses like cc zero.

You will get this url:

The big search box is a general text search of everything relating to the track.

The urls like /dig/ pass the parameters you give straight to the ccMixter query api described here:

So you can combine these together for more advanced searches than the UI currently allows.

Or just play around with the parts in the url, like if you want to see the latest 25 tracks instead of the top 10 in the listing:

Hey, G

From the picks page

Searching on texasradiofish or loveshadow yields all of the authors ed picks plus other remixes.

How/why are the other remixes selected and listed?
permalink   go1dfish Thu, Jan 2, 2014 @ 10:30 PM
The text search is for searching everything about the track; so if they are related at all they will show up.

New fun feature for dig; if you’re logged into ccMixter you can now recommend tracks from the dig.ccMixter interface.

Are you still experiencing this issue? It’s working for me in Firefox. Thanks for helping out :D

Yes. I still have the issue, even after disabling Firebug and AdBlock.

Works fine in Chrome on Linux, incidentally

Why does it say all licenses
free for commercial use?
permalink   Snowflake Sun, Feb 23, 2014 @ 3:26 PM
That is a way to filter between all CC licensed tracks and just CC BY licensed tracks….
permalink   copperhead Sun, Feb 23, 2014 @ 5:37 PM
But everything is labeled like that?
permalink   Snowflake Sun, Feb 23, 2014 @ 6:45 PM
It seems to be defaulting to that on most of the menus although not all (will talk to Alex about that)…but if you change the drop down in the upper right to “All Licenses” it changes the list….
permalink   Snowflake Sun, Feb 23, 2014 @ 11:19 PM
i think we’ve fixed it. Thanks for the heads up.
