"description" : """
Argodejo (Esperanto: 'place to set things up') is a music production session manager.
It is used to start your programs, remember their (JACK) interconnections and make your life easier
in general.
""" + "\n" + """
You can seamlessly change between two view modes to quickly start a few programs or have complete
control and a detailed overview.
""" + "\n" + """
Argodejo does not re-invent the wheel but instead uses the New-Session-Manager daemon and enhances
it with some tricks of its own, that always remain 100% compatible with the original sessions.
""" + "\n" + """
This is a proof of concept version. It aims to show that session management with NSM can be quick
and convenient and make the user feel in control. Some functionality has not yet been
implemented, most prominently anything related to NSM over network. There is always the possibility to
break things when trying out corner cases and hacks.
""" + "\n" + """
That said, for single-computer sessions with just one daemon and one GUI at the same time Argodejo
should provide a good user experience.
