@ChristianRiedl I’ll start with the 2 unrelated questions:
- I am cross compiling for the pi in a Linux VM and then run the app on the pi from Qt Creator. This way I can see the console output on my computer, but test the speed and everything else on the actual hardware itself.
- It is possible to load QML files from the filesystem. Only difference is that you need to give a path to the file and start with “file:” instead of “qrc:”, which refers to the QML Resource file. I might add that loading from a resource file will be always faster, because then you can use qtquickcompiler, which translates the QML files to binary. As far as I know.
I wouldn’t hide the search in a contextual menu. Rather do it the way, I proposed in the UI above. We can still filter the search for various services, basically just adding more “tags” to the list, where I have “All”, “Artist”, etc. This makes the user experience a bit better I believe.
We can still have a “Search this” in the contextual menu, that initiates a search based on the item.
