  1. Add Genre and Grouping columns to browse collection (and maybe others)

    It's almost impossible to browse a music collection without that. And nothing is faster than adding colums browsing (remember, the thing that iTunes killed with version 11 and that works fantasticaly in Swinsian.
    The best is of course an option to choose with ID3 tags you want to add.

    • Add "Album artist view" as an option/replacement of "Artist view" in Collection

      "Album artis" view could be very useful when you want to know which artists are responsible for an entire album.
      In an scenario where you have multiple artist in an album, in several albums, "Artist" view tend to make a mess of your collection.

      • Add Plex as a music source

        Now that Plex does music in a sane fashion, it would be nice to just have it serve my local media to Tomahawk instead of having to set up an additional instance of Ampache.

        • When Content Available From Multiple Sources, Show All Sources and Auto Play Based on Prioritization Preferences

          If I search for music, I would like to see the multiple sources in which the content is available (e.g. song is available on songcloud and google music). Ideally it would auto prioritize to highest quality or the music service I select (e.g. #1 Personal collection, #2 google music, #3 song cloud, #4 youtube etc.). Finally you should be able to see all the sources available for a particular track and select between them (e.g. in case the youtube version is a different recording of that same song or if you want to view the music video).

          • Google music - sync playlists

            Please add support for syncing Google Play Music playlists. It's great to have access to all the music in the cloud, but irritating to have to re-create playlists just to listen to what I'm looking for.

            Ideally this will work with "private" playlists, but at a minimum perhaps support for "public" playlists could be added.

            • implement smart playlists in addition to stations

              It would be great with support to create "smart" playlists. I.e. playlists that are automatically updated based on filter rules. All ID3-tags and other metadata like last played, date added, play count etc. should preferably be available for filtering.

              See iTunes for inspiration which has good smart playlist support (but don't support FLAC and online services...)

              Advanced filtering incl. logical operators AND, OR, NOT in combination with compare operators like IS, LIKE, CONTAINS, STARTS WITH, ENDS WITH, BETWEEN, AT LEAST, AT MOST, ...

              Make it possible to limit the objects in the smart playlist based on number of items or…

              • Allow nested playlists

                Allow nested playlists, which allows you to manage your playlists easily in the sidebar.
                Each parent would be a "superplaylist", allowing us to listen to the content of all children playlists when played.

                • Xbox Music/OneDrive resolver

                  Xbox Music would be a nice addition.

                  Especially now that you can listen to songs already in OneDrive, and that will probably be added soon to the API (if not already).

                    Playing to Chromecast would make your excellent work even better. I love using the Android client and sending my music all over the house.

                    • Gapless playback

                      Maybe more relevant for the local music collection, a gapless playback feature would prevent pauses between consecutive tracks (that are originally meant to segue into each other).

                      • package Tomahawk for Debian

                        Unfortunately the binary Ubuntu packages won't run on Debian Wheezy (stable) because of missing dependencies. Would you please package Tomahawk for Debian? Thanks.

                            • PLEASE give us a dark or darker option for the interface!!!

                              Seriously, I'm begging you. Please don't follow this stupid trend of forcing a bright interface on users with no way to change it. People have been saying for years that staring at a screen can be damaging to your eyes. It's only damaging if everything you're staring at is bright, which is why these apps & websites need to stop using bright white backgrounds & other bright colors, unless it's an accent or highlight color. I want to use Tomahawk SO badly, but I can't handle looking at the eye-searing interface. It's bad enough when someone uses this horrible material…

                                      • Add Replaygain support

                                        My playlist is consisted of loud music and soft music. When a loud music is played after the soft music, it hurts. Also, when a soft music is player after loud music, I have to turn up the volume. So basically I am suffering over and over again unless there is replaygain support. :(
