Sikh Sangeet Web updated

The Sikh Sangeet website was long overdue for an update. The worst offender was the outdated media player.

Waheguru blessed me with some inspiration to do something about it. I started out upgrading the player and ended up with the following successful changes.

  1. Upgrade Player to latest supporting HTML5 with Flash fallback. Advantages:
    1. Mobile support: The Player should work on mobile devices as well as desktop.
    2. Seek support: You should be able to skip within the song without needing to load it fully first.
  2. Switch from PrototypeJS to jQuery. When we developed the site, the choice of a javascript framework was not as clearcut as it is today. A huge hindrance to all of it was the outdated and near-dead PrototypeJS library. We have now switched to the industry standard in jQuery.
  3. Minor code cleanup. There is still a huge amount of work left bringing Sikh Sangeet into modern tools and techniques.

With big changes, come big problems. Please report any problems in comments below.

PS: If you would like to help in any way with Sikh Sangeet, let us know.

Sikh Sangeet Android App

Download it from the Android Market (Remember to review it)

First, the Sikh Sangeet iPhone App, and now we bring you the Sikh Sangeet Android App. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. That goal is slowly being achieved. Screenshots attached!

Our next mission will be to fix problems with the iPhone app. Please use the forum to report problems. Thanks.

Sikh Sangeet iPhone App

Download link to the App Store (Remember to review it)

We’ve been working hard for a couple of months trying to take Sikh Sangeet to the next level. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. First, we worked diligently trying to put up an API for Sikh Sangeet’s vast collection. Then the API was used to quickly come up with a Sikh Sangeet App for the iPhone. Screenshots attached!

This is only the beginning, we hope to do big stuff in the future. Keep it locked!

Sikh Sangeet Update Nov 2, 2009

To celebrate Guru Nanak Dev ji’s birthday, we’re putting out the next release of Sikh Sangeet. In this release, we’ve bridged 3 of our sites: forum, gallery, and SikhSangeet.com. So this means that when you sign up/in at SikhSangeet.com, you will automatically signed up/in at the forum and gallery, with the same login username/password.

This will help create a simpler Sikh Sangeet interface and we hope you enjoy the effort that we’ve put to make this seemingly-simple integration possible.
