GUI client for the Hackathon Gunther Daemon


Hgdc-X is a cross-platform desktop client for the awesome Hackathon Gunther Daemon music player project.

It is a feature complete GUI client, including SSL encryption, written in Lazarus, and is designed to target Linux (GTK2), OS X (Carbon) and Windows (Win32). Other targets and widget sets, for example FreeBSD are possible but untested.

It will build with no additional libraries (except for synapse, which is statically linked and included in the source tree), with Lazarus 0.9.30 or later.

Thanks to the hgd developers for such a great music daemon, and hence opportunity for this client to exist.

Thanks to Hannah for "GUI consultancy", Shaun for Debian/Ubuntu packaging, Ed for OS X testing and Omer for help with this site.
