#446 duplicate Make it easier to download the published audio file Aleksej

Currently there is no visible link to download the WebM audio file, choosing “Save As” for the spectrogram saves the HTML page. The only way to download is to get the URL from e.g. Firefox’s Page Info, the page source code, or using a browser add-on.

#449 duplicate Add download link to audio media type Christopher Allan Webber

It would be good to have a "download" link appear in the sidebar or something for audio types so people can download an audio file if they enjoy it.

This should be super simple to do, and a great task for a new contributor.

#450 fixed Theming support Christopher Allan Webber

We should have proper theming support in MediaGoblin. We *kind of* have theming in MediaGoblin at present, but not really.

Okay, so the things that are needed are really:


  • A way to install themes
  • It should be easy to "build" a theme, which means we should be able to provide a staging area of sorts
    • Should be easy to place together the templates
    • Should be easy to add extra assets
    • Should be easy to roll these up into a tarball or etc
  • Should be easy to "roll out" static templates into a directory that's served from apache

ie, you don't want all .png and css files for a theme to be served by apache/nginx, so you might have a file with something like:

  location /mg_themes {
    alias /srv/mediagoblin/themes/static/;

and a line in mediagoblin.ini like:

theme_install_dir = /srv/mediagoblin/themes/static/

People could possibly push theme static content to something like this with such a command:

./bin/gmg install_theme coolthemebro.tar.gz

This might install the theme to something like:

  • That said, the themes that come with MediaGoblin should get a "free pass" here maybe? There's no reason that we shouldn't include a couple of base themes, and there's no reason that someone selecting one should have to push


  • Should themes be plugins?
    • Pro: Could make use of infrastructure willkg is already using.
    • Con: Could allow themes to install way more than they should be able to, possibly even install malicious python code. (However, since templates can basically execute a good amount of python, you should only install templates you trust anyway.)
    • Pro: Plugins probably also already need a way to set up their own files, including templates and static files, so we could just use that
  • How to make the staging area and everything work nicely and cleanly?
    • If we set up the config options, directories and stuff in paste.ini and mediagoblin from the get-go, it's probably pretty easy to do right, and we can have a ./bin/gmg rolltheme that rolls up everything in the user_dev/templates/ and user_dev/theme_static/ into the appropriate tarball?
  • How to handle the "registry" of things correctly? (Again, plugin solution might actually just make this easy)
