Mobile recently added episodes browser (with controls)
Just a quick update that I whipped together this afternoon - a very simple recently added episodes browser for mobile devices.

I frequently find myself sitting down to dinner / pouring wine / led on the couch feeling lazy, and wanting to know what new media Sickbeard has added to XBMC for me. Browsing to the "recently added" section of XBMC takes time (plus it means that you can't already be watching something in XBMC). Maraschino on a tablet works fine and all, but the interface is not optimised.

The solution is now to go to /mobile (i.e. "http://your-maraschino-url/mobile" - this is what you will see:

Like I said, it's very simple, but it solves an (admittedly minor) problem Smile

It's a scrollable list of the episodes recently added to XBMC. Episodes that you have already watched have a tick next to them. Touching an episode will play it in XBMC. As you can see, there are also play/pause and stop controls (which are in a fixed position regardless of where you are when scrolling). Touching the Maraschino logo takes you to the full desktop version of Maraschino.

In the future I plan to expand it to be a full library browser that looks sweet on tablets (because the XBMC remote on tablets looks okay, not sweet - and it doesn't have a "recently added" section as far as I know). It could also be expanded to have much, much more... but we'll see Smile

I decided to release it now because it's completely separate to the main Maraschino application (it's on the /mobile URL), so all it's doing is providing a little something extra. Hopefully some of you will find it useful.

Enjoy!

Nice. I really like that.
Can Recently Added Movies and Albums be added to it easily?

Very easily. I'm going to make it a nice split-view interface for tablets though, whilst keeping it usable on phones (that's the plan anyway)... need to do some more experimentation with jQuery Mobile (the framework that I used for it).

I have performed apt-get update on my system and I don't have access to "http://your-maraschino-url/mobile". Is there anything else that I must do?

apt-get update will get you nowhere.
cd to the root of your Maraschino folder and perform a -

git pull

then restart Maraschino
