README.md

LyBerry

A Qt LBRY client that uses the LyBerry Api

Status

Still in an early stage, but many essential features are in place:

  • Following Feed
  • Watch Videos (in configurable external video player)
  • Read Articles (in configurable external text reader)
  • Read / Write / Reply to Comments (on configurable comment server)
  • Basic search

Installation

First install a recent version of Python 3.

Then install the package with pip:

pip install lyberry-qt

Get more info from Python about installing packages: https://packaging.python.org/en/latest/tutorials/installing-packages/

Usage

Run the app:

lyberry-qt

LyBerry depends on the lbrynet daemon. This is provided by the official LBRY Desktop application, so if that is open in the background LyBerry should just work, and will share the logged in accounts.

You can instead run the daemon alone; get more info about that here: https://github.com/lbryio/lbry-sdk#installation. LyBerry is designed to work with the daemon over the network, so you could leave this running on a homeserver for good uptime seeding content. (Note: Don't expose the lbrynet api to the open Internet!)

Videos will try to open in mpv by default. This option can be changed with the player_cmd setting, found on the settings page. On windows, you will want to change mpv to mpv.exe. You could also use VLC, or another video player if you wish.

You can also change settings in conf.toml in your relevant config directory. (eg on linux edit ~/.config/lyberry/conf.toml)

If some thumbnails are not showing you may need to install a Qt image format library on your system. Search for this using your package manager.
