I recently attended to a presentation of the Vert.X toolkit, a powerful library based on the JVM that allows you to create reactive, scalable applications with many advantages. There’s a lot of similitude with nodejs, but I bet it’s faster and more robust thanks to decades of JVM optimizations. I was really eager to try it, but yet had to find the project it’d fit in.
Since I’m also fan of the Raspberry Pi and want to use it as a MPD server, I started to develop a web interface to control MPD. There’s already a lot of MPD clients which probably do a lot more of what I intend to do, but that’s how start new projects, right?
The project is at its very beginning and I can’t tell how far it will go. It’s on GitHub.
I’ll post shortly about how I set up a build workflow with all these techs [update: it’s there].
