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.

You can seamlessly change between two view modes to quickly start a few programs or have complete control and a detailed overview.

Argodejo does not re-invent the wheel but instead uses the Non-Session-Manager daemon and enhances it with some tricks of its own, that always remain 100% compatible with the original sessions.

Version: Proof of Concept

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.

That said, for single-computer sessions with just one daemon and one GUI at the same time Argodejo should provide a good user experience.

There is little documentation. The automatic build system might have tried to create weblinks and default sentences indicating otherwise, but this is false.

If you encounter statements or announced features that seem to not work you have just encountered a side-effect of the top-down development approach.

You need PyQt5, Python 3.6+ and the nsmd binary from Non-Session-Manager.

Please link tools/nsm-data to your $PATH.

There is no make-stage or compilation at the moment.

You can run ./argodejo in place or link it to your $PATH.
