Write a Plugin to highlight rows in the browser based on con

Postby skeltob » Fri Aug 09, 2019 6:47 pm

Hey there. I'd like to write a plugin (or a mod) to highlight lines in the track browser based on special conditions (that are about infos of this song)

Ideally these conditions are configurable e.g. using javascript in the settings.

My Idea is to highlight tracks based on the genre (e.g. Salsa/ ChaCha/ Bachata, etc) in order to better keep track of which is which. The other idea was to highlight tracks that do not have cuepoints or where the bitrate is too low for having a good quality.

Where in the code would I need to check for this or is there a plugin interface?

Thank you for you interest to help improving Mixxx.
Some general hint you will find here:

Any help is appreciated.

The search box already has an advanced syntax for query track properties. Currently it filters the list instead of just highlight them. Why is highlighting required in your use case?

It is described in the "Using search operators" chapter of:
