A DJ tool written in Eiffel

by Finnian Reilly (modified: 2016 Aug 08)

Hi all,

one of my hobbies is dancing Argentine tango, and I also like to DJ for tango events. I compose my playlists using the Rhythmbox media player and then export them to an Android device to take to the event.

Over the last 8 years or so I have been developing a DJ tool called "EL Rhythmbox". It is designed to be used as an adjunct to the Rhythmbox music player and has some features of particular interest to Tango DJs, creating cortinas for example. (Musical interludes between dance sets)

However it is not a plugin and needs to be run separately to the media player. It is distributed as an example program for Eiffel-Loop. I have only recently gotten around to documenting it properly.

An overview of the what the tool does can be found here:
