One of the things I've been working on for #Ubuntu Touch is some #golang bindings for the new Unity Scopes API.  To work out the kinks, I ported the old Unity 7 SoundCloud scope to Go using the binding.

The screen shots below show the scope running on a Nexus 4 with the latest Ubuntu Touch image.  The code behind the scope can be found here:

There is certainly room for improvement, but this has feature parity with the old Python scope (with a few extras, such as purchase and video buttons if the artist has provided them).

The code seems fairly easy to understand, so hopefully it will be useful to other developers who want to build scopes for Unity 8.

Looks like at least the ad displays installed in the Zurich trams are running Linux - Ubuntu apparently. And sometimes they get stuck in the boot loader. ;-)

As mentioned on my last blog post, I’ve just completed 5 years at Canonical, and this is an year of many more milestones. My time at Canonical could only be described as excellent, and with the kids just past 3 years old, personal life has been getting…

I left Canonical for Google after my first kid. It's worked out nicely. :)
