  4. Welcome to HSMusic, a fan-made Homestuck music wiki!
  5. <a href="">Homestuck</a> has always been an incredible creative collaboration, and especially beloved by the community and critical in that collaboration is the webcomic and world's humongous soundtrack, comprising well over 500 tracks by dozens of musicians and artists. This wiki aims to be an interesting and useful resource for anyone interested in that music, as well as an archive for all things related.
  6. Pertaining to the history of this site: it was originally made as a remake of Homestuck's official <a href="">Bandcamp</a>, which saw its content particularly reduced on <a href="">10/25/19</a>. This site aims to be a more reliable resource and reference: track art (conspicuously missing from the Bandcamp) is archived here, solo albums (among other missing albums, like [[album:Squiddles!]]) are all indexed in the one place, and URLs will always stay consistent. And of course, also included are links for listening on Bandcamp and other services.
  7. Nowadays, HSMusic also operates as a center for all sorts of fan music, a sort-of home where avid listeners can explore, discover, and support artists and albums within the sphere around Homestuck music. We're always looking to share new music here, so if there's anything you'd like to see, please feel encouraged to [[static:feedback|drop a message]]!
  8. The code for this website is open source (GPL-3.0), and can be explored or forked <a href="">here</a>. If you want to get in touch with feature requests or comments on the code, our contact info is [[static:feedback|here]]!
  9. <i>Resource &amp; Author Credits</i>
  10. - Quasar Nebula: that's me - it's us! We programmed most of the site, and put the whole thing together. [[static:feedback|Say hi]]!
  11. - <a href="">Homestuck's Bandcamp</a>, the official host of Homestuck's music: I got almost all the official album listings and basic track info from here.
  12. - GiovanH's <a href="">complete track art archive</a>: track art! A million thanks for putting this together and sharing this with me. (Prior to this, I used the <a href="">Web Archive</a> to gather track art.)
  13. - <a href="">NSND</a>: leitmotifs! Thanks to this site in combination with credits on the bandcamp and artists' own commentary, this wiki is a rather comprehensive resource for leitmotifs and other track references.
  14. - <a href=""> (HQ Audio Flashes)</a>: thumbnail captures for the individual Flash animations! There were a couple captures missing that I took myself, but most Flash thumbnails are from here.</a>
  15. - The <a href="">Homestuck and MSPA Music Wiki</a> on Fandom: the inspiration for this wiki! I've wanted to make a more complete and explorable wiki ever since seeing it. The Fandom wiki has also been a very handy reference in putting this together, so much thanks to everyone who's worked on it!
  16. - <a href=""></a>: Besides being the home of the comic this whole site is based around, the main wallpaper for the site is pulled from <a href="">More from Homestuck</a>.
  17. - <a href=""></a>: I stole your icons.svg file. It is mine now. :tobyfox_dog_sunglasses:
  18. - All organizers and contributors of the <a href="">Homestuck Vol. 5 Anthology</a> - community-made track art for [[album:Homestuck Vol. 5]]! All of this art is <i>excellent</i>. Each track credits its respective cover artist.
  19. - Likewise for the <a href="">Beyond Canon Track Art Anthology</a> as well as <a href="">Alternia/Bound</a>!
  20. - All comments on the site: I appreciate all feedback a lot! People have shared a ton of ideas and suggestions with me, and I <i>cannot</i> emphasize enough how motivating it is to share a project with like-minded folx interested in making it better with you.
  21. <i>Feature &amp; Contribution Acknowledgements</i>
  22. - <b>Thank you,</b> GiovanH, for linking me to a resource for higher quality cover art, and bringing to my attention the fact that clicking a cover art on Bandcamp to zoom in will often reveal a higher quality image.
  23. - cosmogonicalAuthor, for a variety of feature requests and comments! In particular: improving way the track list on author pages is sorted; expanding the introduction; expanding the introduction message to the website; and linking bonus art for Homestuck Vol. 5 - plus a few other good suggestions I haven't gotten to yet. Thanks!
  24. - Monckat, for suggesting the album Strife 2 before I'd begun adding fandom-created albums and unofficial releases to this wiki, and for working with an emailer to reupload the original cover art for [[track:the-thirteenth-hour]].
  25. - Kidpen, for suggesting the "Flashes that feature this track" feature.
  26. - an emailer, for suggesting the "Random track" feature.
  27. - foreverFlumoxed, for pointing out that [[flash:338]] contains reference to [[JOHN DO THE WINDY THING]] (this reminded me to add all the unreleased Flash tracks to the Unreleased Tracks album!), for recommending the restructure to [[album:Unreleased Tracks]], and for going to the massive effort of checking every track page and pointing out a bunch of missing cover arts and title typos!
  28. - Makin, for various initial help in data collection (especially commentary) and lifting the site off the ground by pinning it to the top of the /r/homestuck subreddit for a while, and for linking me the independent release of <a href="">Sburb</a>.
  29. - an emailer, for sending a crop of the YT thumbnail art for [[After the Sun]] (plus the SoundCloud link for that track), for reporting the "Random" buttons being broken, and for linking a bunch of resources and various official uploads of tracks and albums.
  30. - Niklink, for contributing immensely to the existing lyrics on the wiki and transcribing plenty of new ones that had been totally missed before, as well as for help with archiving the early official album releases ([[album:homestuck-vol-1]] through [[album:homestuck-vol-4]]), and suggesting and contributing to the various album wallpapers across the site.
  31. - nuclear333, for a variety of valuable feedback and discussion, as well as for spearheading projects like the <a href="">unofficial Pesterquest OST album &amp; metadata</a>.
  32. - Bambosh, for creating <a href="">The Unofficial Homestuck Collection</a> and integrating data from HSMusic so seamlessly into it, and for sharing a number of handy data fixes and comments.
  33. - Thanks for pointing out typos, errors in reference lists, and out of date details: cookiefonster, foreverFlummoxed, an emailer, Bambosh, and Niklink.
  34. <i>Supporter &amp; Patron Thank-yous</i>
  35. <b>Thank you</b> to all present and past [[static:donate|supporters]] of the wiki, including:
  36. - Nights, enchantingHunter, leo homestuck, and Gradis.

  38. Name: Feedback &amp; Suggestions
  39. Directory: feedback
  40. Content:
  41. <strong>Feature requests?<br>Noticed any errors?<br>Itching to see that one album you love on the wiki?</strong>
  42. Please let us know! We appreciate feedback a lot, and always want to make this site better.
  43. There are five main channels you can reach the dev through:
  44. - [[static:discord|HSMusic Community Discord Server]] - The official Discord, and a friendly place to drop feedback or discuss the wiki. (We also share sneak peeks of the coming updates here frequently!)
  45. - <a href="">HomestuckXYZ</a> - A public forum thread for the wiki.
  46. - <a href="">Twitter</a> - DMs for discussion or feedback are open! (It might go a while unnoticed, though - the site only indicates message requests when it's manually checked, and we're pretty terrible at remembering to do that!)
  47. - <a href="">Mastodon</a> - Same as birdsite but a moderately less terrible platform :)
  48. - Email - it's <s><code>towerofnix at gmail dot beans</code></s> <b>now been revised</b> to <code>qznebula at protonmail dot com</code>! (We'll still get messages at the old address, though.) Old-fashioned, but personally our favorite besides the Discord, and certainly practical if you're sending a longer-form message.
  49. Thanks so much for sharing your feedback!

  147. (news entry: [[news-entry:june-attuned]])
  148. <h3>site changes</h3>
  149. - updated CSS styling code to improve site layout on mobile devices
  150. - album/track cover art now displays at full width on thin screens, placing main page content beneath (with wider text area)
  151. - nav bar now displays as a single column of info rows on thin screens, rather than attempting to show track name and artist chronology links side-by-side
  152. - general CSS fixes should help with layout bugs
  153. <h3>album pages</h3>
  154. - added fallback "Track list" track group when an album isn't divided into groups, ensuring the sidebar track list always defaults to collapsed
  155. <h3>group pages</h3>
  156. - added "from (group)" accent text on group info page next to albums which are part of more than one group
  157. - made sections of group page sidebar collapsible/expandable (like album sidebar)
  158. <h3>tag pages</h3>
  159. - made cover arts sort by reverse chronological order, placing recent releases near the top
  160. <h3>internal changes</h3>
  161. - divided much of 6000-line site generation file <code>upd8.js</code> into a number of smaller, better-organized files
  162. - separated each page generation function into its own module, reducing redundant maintenance, supporting future uses of these modules, and making the codebase a lot easier to navigate and build upon
  163. - begun work on experimental "Thing" class-based (OOP) objects, aiming for better interfacing with objects and to support neat extensible ways of working with objects, data loading, and page generation in the future
  164. <h3>data changes</h3>
  165. - added new [[group:beyond]] group, and moved many groups previously categorized under [[group:fandom]] here
  166. - more general group for musical expanse beyond Homestuck official and fandom discographies
  167. - reference and data fixes, courtesy of Niklink:
  168. - new track [[track:floweys-laugh]], referenced by [[track:the-lordling]], [[track:your-best-nightmare]], and [[track:a-very-trickster-mode-christmas-with-fancy-santas]]
  169. - [[track:nic-cage-romance]] references [[track:how-do-i-live]]
  170. - [[track:kazoostuck]] references [[track:homestuck]]
  171. - [[track:a-very-trickster-mode-christmas]] references [[track:the-one-horse-open-sleigh]]

  174. - [[track:lori-and-erich-baker]] has updated name and listen link (thanks, nuclear333!)
  175. <h2 id="13-may-2021"><a href="#13-may-2021">[[date:13 May 2021]] - tMEWIARBu next-day patch</a></h2>
  176. <h3>site changes</h3>
  177. - made the primary color of a page "bleed" into its backdrop area, subtly tinting pages across the site
  178. - removed the <code>backdrop-filter</code> CSS effect, which previously would the wallpaper behind the page container to create a "glossy glass" effect, but isn't suported consistently across browsers yet
  179. <h3>data changes</h3>
  180. - grouped the tracks in [[album:diverging-delicacies]] according to the corresponding portion of the homestuck epilogues (thanks, Niklink and FF!)
  181. - added a Color tag to [[album:the-baby-is-you]], so links to it don't just inherit the color of the containing page (e.g. track reference in [[track:the-bad-time-is-you]] previously looking green; thanks, Low!)
  182. - added soundcloud links for [[track:star-i-never-caught]], [[track:someday]], and [[track:harrigan]] (thanks, FF!)
  183. - data fixes/tweaks throughout [[album:entertaining-sound]]:
  184. - [[track:2016-but-all-the-best-memes-happen-at-the-same-time]] references [[track:good-night-undertale]] (not [[track:good-night]]) and [[track:snow-halation-love-live]] (not [[track:snow-halation]])
  185. - [[track:oh-2017]] references [[track:woah]]
  186. - added [[track:sweet-victory]] as the track referenced (i.e. featured) in [[track:what-year-is-it]]
  187. - added bandcamp links to all referenced [[artist:silvagunner]] tracks
  188. - ty nata for reference fixes and leo for bandcamp links!
  189. <h2 id="12-may-2021" class="major-release"><a href="#12-may-2021">[[date:12 May 2021]] - the my ex-wife is a real bitch update</a></h2>
  190. (news entry: [[news-entry:the-my-ex-wife-is-a-real-bitch-update]])
  191. <h3>site changes</h3>
  192. - a whole variety of updates and improvements to album sidebars:
  193. - got rid of the right-hand sidebar, as it was taking up considerable horizontal space; with the new free space, album and track art is featured at a much larger size, as originally intended (same for lyrics, commentary, etc!)
  194. - moved the group boxes that were on the right into the left-sidebar, above the track list on album pages and in a newly compressed view beneath the track list on track pages
  195. - made the track group headings collapsible/openable ("accordion" layout using <code>&lt;details&gt;</code> elements), so any track can easily be visited from any other track in the same album
  196. - made track groups default to all collapsed on the album page, since a view of all the track groups in full is visible in the main content area (as before), and the collapsed overview makes it easier to quickly jump to tracks in any section
  197. - much thanks to Niklink, for the general proposal of making more room for album art as well as miscellaneous feedback, and megatti, for suggesting the combined group view on track pages!
  198. - banner dimensions are now specified in album data files and included as part of HTML, keeping the layout on album pages with banners from flickering or shifting on slower connections
  199. - a bunch more internal changes:
  200. - began breaking the colossal single source file for the entire site build process into a number of more focused modules, making the codebase as a whole easier to work with; more work to be done here in the future
  201. - rewrote the entire inline parser and transformer for all text content on the site, using a new manual parsing method (rather than pure regexes) which supports nested tags but is still just as performant operating on huge amounts of data
  202. - this will basically enable support for more complex templating down the line, as well as accessing localization strings inside of content areas (like static pages, album commentary, artist contributions, and more)
  203. - JSON data files are now generated for albums and artists as well, although these aren't used anywhere on the site yet, and the data format is subject to change with more brainstorming
  204. <h3>albums</h3>
  205. - the new [[album:psycholonials]] full album release, as well as the new EPs leading up to it: [[album:psycholonials-ep-8]] and [[album:psycholonials-ep-9]]
  206. - since-unlisted albums from [[group:clark-powell]], as the original releases for music from [[album:psycholonials]]:
  207. - [[album:we-are-all-satellites]]
  208. - [[album:namesake]]
  209. - [[album:someday]]
  210. - also, [[album:entertaining-sound]] by [[artist:jan-misali]]
  211. <h3>data changes</h3>
  212. - added artist commentary for [[album:alternia]], transcribed from album-release commentary booklet
  213. - fixed commentary not showing up at all in [[track:megadancevania]]
  214. - banner refinements and updates from Niklink across many albums:
  215. - better upscale: [[album:homestuck-vol-5]], [[album:homestuck-vol-6]], [[album:homestuck-vol-7]], [[album:homestuck-vol-8]], [[album:homestuck-vol-9]], [[album:symphony-impossible-to-play]], [[album:one-year-older]], [[album:genesis-frog]], [[album:cherubim]], [[album:tomb-of-the-ancestors]], [[album:sburb-ost]], [[album:lofam2]], [[album:lofam3]], [[album:beforus]], [[album:weird-puzzle-tunes]], [[album:ancestral]], [[album:lofam4]], [[album:xenoplanetarium]], [[album:moons-of-theseus]]
  216. - extend background horizontally: [[album:gristmas-carols]], [[album:cosmic-caretakers]], [[album:diverging-delicacies]], [[album:friendsymphony]], [[album:shortcuts]], [[album:p-s]]
  217. - reconstruct: [[album:alterniabound]], [[album:coloUrs-and-mayhem-universe-a]], [[album:coloUrs-and-mayhem-universe-b]], [[album:psycholonials]] (and EPs)

  251. (news entry: [[news-entry:solo-albums-aplenty]])
  252. <h3>site changes</h3>
  253. - added per-album banners, as a compliment to wallpapers (from February)
  254. - currently only show up on album index pages, not track pages, since they can push the content pretty far down
  255. - thanks to Niklink for helping archive and double-check these!
  256. - made background for the content area a glossy, rather than solid, gray; particularly notable on albums with custom wallpapers
  257. - removed <i>Psycholonials</i> row from homepage and replaced New Releases with New Additions, a new type of row showing a diverse selection of the latest albums to be added to the wiki
  258. - added data files for tracks, accessible at <code>/data/track/&lt;directory&gt;/data.json</code> ("directory" means the name of the track as it shows up in permalink URLs, e.g. <code>bl1nd-just1c3-1nv3st1g4t1on</code>)
  259. - will be extended to albums, artists, etc soon!
  260. - can be accessed from external programs via HTTP request
  261. - will probably also exist as a complete package download for offline use, though this hasn't been done yet
  262. - internal changes as foundations for future updates
  263. - tweaks and improvements to the CLI site build tool
  264. - made the URL/path system generally less complex (and accidentally spent way too long on this!)
  265. - more translation additions and brainstorming for how to work them into more of the site
  266. - implemented the basic design and functionality for info (hover) cards, which are functional but not quite complete and will show up in a release soon
  267. - you can try them out by setting <code>localStorage.tryInfoCards = true</code> in your browser console!
  268. - only implemented for tracks so far; make use of the data files described above
  269. <h3>albums</h3>

  296. <h3>data changes</h3>

  308. - (all artworks above were previously credited to the catch-all [[artist:homestuck]])
  309. <h3>bug fixes</h3>
  310. - fixed artist pages no longer sorting tracks according to their original release date (e.g. on [[artist:nuclear333]], tracks from [[album:inhospitable-delisted]] were being sorted according to the album rerelease in 2021, rather than the original track releases in 2017)
  311. - fixed sidebar of [[album:unreleased-tracks]] all being one color, instead of applying distinguishing colors for each track group (thanks, foreverFlummoxed!)
  312. - fixed a few dates at the end of the changelog being formatted inconsistently with the rest of the wiki
  313. <h2 id="16-mar-2021"><a href="#16-mar-2021">[[date:16 March 2021]] - "random" link fixes</a></h2>
  314. <h3>bug fixes</h3>
  315. - fixed "random" links (e.g. on album pages and [[listing:random|Random Pages]] listing) redirecting to "undefined" URLs instead of the appropriate type directory (track, group, etc)
  316. <h2 id="12-mar-2021" class="major-release"><a href="#12-mar-2021">[[date:12 March 2021]] - translation &amp; renovation</a></h2>
  317. (news entry: [[news-entry:translation-renovation]])
  318. <h3>site changes</h3>
  319. - translation/localization support:
  320. - nearly all static text on the wiki has been replaced with strings specified in a plain JSON file
  321. - default language for a wiki is generated at the root directory (/) as usual; new languages are in subdirectory (e.g. "/jp/album/diverging-delicacies")
  322. - no languages are newly supported yet, but the localization system is totally tested; see [[news-entry:translation-renovation|the news entry]] for details on contributing translations!
  323. - thumbnail support:
  324. - small images (250x250) are used in grids (on homepage, album/artist galleries, etc)
  325. - medium images (400x400) are used on pages with larger cover art (individual track/album pages, etc)
  326. - full-size images (usually 600x600-1200x1200, pulled from public bandcamp listings) are no longer embedded at all, but can still be viewed by clicking on cover arts to zoom in
  327. - previously, <em>every</em> image on the site was full-size! this was particularly terrible for people with slow connections or limited bandwidths
  328. - example stats: download size of scrolling entire homepage reduced from 3.8mb to 0.6mb
  329. - internal renovation across build file:
  330. - (<a href="">before</a>, <a href="">after</a>)
  331. - url system restructured:
  332. - link-related bugs are much harder to run into
  333. - link references in content (e.g. "\[[album:foo-bar]]") are modularized and can more easily link to anywhere across the wiki
  334. - codebase forks can easily adjust url specification to move parts of the site to different paths (though this isn't yet possible via data file)
  335. - site build time is significantly reduced (since there are far fewer redundant calls to path.relative)
  336. - page write functions restructured
  337. - data required during a page write is gathered once, and then reused across all languages that page is built in, significantly reducing build time across multiple languages
  338. - writePage itself is broken into a few different chunks, which can be referenced individually when needed
  339. - changes tie nicely into url system restructure as well
  340. - shared data variables and functions organized and tidied for simpler access across code
  341. - miscellaneous arguments and specifications across code have been restructured to prefer explicit description before unnecessarily compact formats
  342. - this has the side-effect of making a fair amount of the build logic simpler!
  343. - significantly expanded data validation which happens before any site pages are written
  344. <h3>albums</h3>
  345. - besides additions for [[group:psycholonials]], no new music shared on the wiki this month, as translation and renovation changes took an especially long time to design and implement
  346. <h3>artist pages</h3>
  347. - added total duration of music contributed to an album next ot the album date
  348. - display "cover art" and "wallpaper art" lines at the top of an album art contribution list, rather than at the bottom (this had been an accidental code error)
  349. - display flash/game date range next to the "act" (or flash group label), rather than showing every date next to each flash, to make this section much visually cleaner
  350. - removed "Featured in" links, since these were taking up a lot of visual space
  351. - this has been added to [[listing:tracks/in-flashes/by-album|Tracks - in Flashes &amp; Games (by Album)]] instead
  352. <h3>commentary pages</h3>
  353. - cleaned [[commentary-index:_|commentary index]] layout and strings (e.g. before: "19/20 entries; 8.4k words", after: "8.4k words across 19 entries")
  354. <h3>track pages</h3>
  355. - reference list is only divided into "fandom" and "official" if a group with directory "official" is present in the first place
  356. - this is essentially hard-coded, but is a quick and simple fix for all references on wikis without the concept displaying as "fandom" references
  357. <h3>listings</h3>
  358. - generally tweaked strings to be more consistent across listings and the site
  359. - added gallery link to [[listing:groups/by-name|Groups - by Name]] and [[listing:groups/by-category|Groups - by Category]] listings
  360. - added flash links to [[listing:tracks/in-flashes/by-album|Tracks - in Flashes &amp; Games (by Album)]]
  361. - added album links to [[listing:tracks/in-flashes/by-flash|Tracks - in Flashes &amp; Games (by Flash)]]
  362. - added number of uses to [[listing:tags/by-name|Tags - by Name]]
  363. - implemented [[listing:random|Random Pages]] as an actual listing via the same system as all others
  364. - this is just generally better practice
  365. - it also fixes the Random Pages link not being bold when selected though!
  366. <h3>data changes</h3>
  367. - dozens of internal changes using new link syntax, as well as other internal fixes without user-visible changes
  368. - contributor list changes for consistency across wiki and to remove redundant credit info:
  369. - [[track:showtime-piano-refrain]]:

  371. - remove [[artist:malcolm-brown]], originally included for composing [[track:showtime-original-mix]]

  386. - [[track:solar-voyage]]: credit [[artist:marcy-nabors]] for composition as well as arrangement and vocals (and move to top of list)
  387. - [[track:renewed-return]]: credit [[artist:marcy-nabors]] for composition as well as bass clarinet (and move to top of list)
  388. - [[track:youre-a-mean-one-mr-slick]]: credit [[artist:whatislostinthemines]] for composition as well as lyrics (and move to top of list)
  389. - [[track:violet-and-gold]]: credit [[artist:veritas-unae]] for composition as well as lyrics (and move to top of list)

  392. - renamed [[track:till-the-last-breath]] (used to be "Til The Last Breath")

  395. - renamed [[track:wisest-wizord]] (used to be "Wizest Wizord")
  396. - renamed [[track:revisit-rewind]] (used to have spaces around slash)
  397. - fixed typo in lyrics for [[track:cr1m1n4l-cr1m1n4l]] (used to be "Hey, crinimal scum, ...")
  398. - added art tags to [[track:the-golden-towers]] and [[track:prospit-dreamers]], thanks to LowDeath675!
  399. - fixed duplicate commentary entries in [[track:doctor-vol-1-4]] and [[track:endless-climb-vol-1-4]]
  400. - removed some old commentary from [[track:sports]]. <a href="">RIP</a>
  401. - clarified wallpaper contributions that said "edits" (e.g. [[album:homestuck-vol-5]]) to say "edits for wiki"
  402. - album and flash data additions for [[group:psycholonials]] over the course of the month
  403. <h2 id="12-feb-2021" class="major-release"><a href="#12-feb-2021">[[date:12 February 2021]] - retrace, retexture</a></h2>
  404. (news entry: [[news-entry:retrace-retexture]])
  405. <h3>site changes</h3>
  406. - added per-album wallpapers
  407. - many albums have these, e.g. [[album:homestuck-vol-5]]; check "data changes" section for full list
  408. - archive and restore the original presentation of album releases while still keeping a unified design across the whole wiki
  409. - much thanks to [[artist:niklink]] for help collecting and editing these, as well as originally suggesting this feature in December; as well as to the rest of the [[static:discord|Discord]] community for suggestions and feedback!
  410. - added per-album commentary pages
  411. - no-distraction, complete collections of all commentary for each album, divided by track
  412. - based upon and replaces the old "All Commentary" listing, which was always too long for its own good
  413. - e.g. [[album-commentary:genesis-frog]], [[album-commentary:lofam4]]
  414. - added distinct news entry pages
  415. - much like "All Commentary", a solitary news page would quickly become unwieldy for most browsers!
  416. - [[site:news/|news index]] now shows headings and short passages instead
  417. - added footer to all pages of the site
  418. - contains feedback and donate links for now; this is totally customizable (see below!)
  419. - added <i>Psycholonials</i> row to homepage
  420. - will be updated as new chapters are released, in independent updates from the main coming March/April releases
  421. - no information for tracks currently unreleased, but we'll revisit this when all chapters and the full soundtrack have been released
  422. - many, many internal changes
  423. - almost all content across the wiki is now totally dynamic; e.g, wiki name and color scheme are stored in a data file
  424. - static pages like Changelog and Donate are no longer hard-coded and can be added or removed without editing the wiki code
  425. - homepage rows can also be customized; while there's only one type of row available currently (albums from list or group and optionally action links), the foundations are there to add more in the future
  426. - most site features, e.g. [[site:flash/|Flashes &amp; Games]], [[listing-index:_|Listings]], and [[news-index:_|News]], can now be selectively enabled and disabled
  427. - a variety of changes to the internal text transformer, making longform text in data files (e.g. commentary, lyrics, static pages) much easier to read and write
  428. - <a href="">code</a> and <a href="">data</a> repositories have been separated (media as well, but it's not pushed online anywhere yet); CLI tool for actually building the site has been updated accordingly
  429. - all these changes are in service of making running your own wiki off the same codebase accessible and powerful; there's still much to be done before it's totally ready, though
  430. <h3>albums</h3>
  431. - added another set of new albums, summarized below
  432. - from [[group:michael-guy-bowman]]:

  447. <h3>listings</h3>
  448. - as detailed in "site change" section, removed the "All Commentary" listing, replacing it with individual per-album commentary pages
  449. - there is a new and refined [[site:commentary/|Commentary]] index though!
  450. <h3>data changes</h3>
  451. - added wallpapers to many albums:

  579. <h3>groups</h3>
  580. - new feature! groups are collections of fan albums, organized under a dedicated page for an external group or project.
  581. - groups exist in three categories: <i>HSMusic</i>, <i>Fan-musician groups</i>, and <i>Projects beyond Homestuck</i>
  582. - HSMusic: overall structure for the wiki, containing [[group:official]] and [[group:fandom]], into which nearly all albums are categorized
  583. - Fan-musician groups: collaborative groups of fan-musicians releasing music under a single name, e.g. [[group:casual-sunday]] and [[group:unofficial-mspa-fans]]
  584. - Projects beyond Homestuck: groups centered around a particular work, usually inspired by Homestuck, e.g. [[group:undertale-and-deltarune]] and [[group:oceanfalls]]
  585. - groups each have two "tabs" or views: Info and Gallery
  586. - Info: this displays the full description for a group, and then a chronological list of albums (and their years of release)
  587. - Gallery: replacing the previously dedicated pages for official and fandom albums, this displays a list of albums organized with their latest first, and has a short info line summarizing stats about the group
  588. - miniature group "infoboxes" are displayed on the right side of album and track pages
  589. - this design (alongside much of this update's layout changes) is inspired by the site layout of Bandcamp
  590. - contains a short catchline introducing the group, links to visit the external homes of the group (e.g. its own Bandcamp or project links), and chronology links to navigate the previous and next albums within the group
  591. - displayed at the bottom of the page in compact layout (e.g. when on a mobile device)
  592. <h3>artist pages</h3>
  593. - every artist who has contributed track or album cover art, e.g. [[artist:elanor-pam]], now has a gallery page; these are much the same as tag gallery pages but for artists
  594. <h3>track pages</h3>
  595. - YouTube links for individual tracks no longer attach their playlist, because this was deemed Mostly Just Impractical in discussion
  596. <h3>listings</h3>
  597. - added six new listings, for the new groups feature:
  598. - [[listing:groups/by-name|Groups - by Name]]

  604. - adjusted the order of existing listings, to make them hopefully a little easier to navigate
  605. - renamed the "Tracks - in Flashes &amp; Games (by First Feature)" listing to "... (by Flash)" and [[site:list/tracks/in-flashes/by-flash/|considerably restructured it]], effectively making it into a compact summary of the [[site:flash/|Flashes &amp; Games]] portion of the site

  642. (news entry: [[news-entry:hsmusicwiki]])
  643. <h3>site changes</h3>
  644. - redesigned the homepage from the ground up to be a better landing page for the wiki!
  645. - three groupings for the wiki index: New Releases, Fandom, Official, showing just a few so it's easy to navigate, with new buttons to view a complete grid listing
  646. - moved the "Explore the site!" links over to the newly wiki-wide header, placing albums front and center while leaving navigation links readily accessible
  647. - added a sidebar to the homepage, listing recent [[site:news/|news entries]] parallel with albums
  648. - improved navigation all around the site, making the wiki as a whole more consistent
  649. - cover art displayed in grid items is smaller across the site, fitting more items on a screen at once and emphasizing the name more than before
  650. - on the new [[root:albums/official/|Official]] and [[root:albums/fandom/|Fandom]] album indexes, the number of tracks and length of the album is displayed as well
  651. - added lazy loading for images, so landing pages shouldn't take up nearly as much data, and will load quicker (especially noticeable for the [[site:flash/|Flashes &amp; Games]] index!)
  652. - adjusted the styling for grouped listings (previously used only for [[album:unreleased-tracks]]) as they become more common (see data changes section)
  653. - made links which require JavaScript only show up if JS is actually enabled
  654. <h3>tags</h3>
  655. - new feature! tags are used for two things: categorizing track art by character, and displaying content warnings.
  656. - added a tag list beneath most track and album arts describing characters in the image and linking to their gallery pages
  657. - added tag gallery pages under the Listings section, showing a grid of all the track and album covers which are tagged with that character
  658. - added content warnings for common triggers (alcohol, body horror, etc), blurring out the image and showing warning tags until it is clicked and revealed
  659. <h3>listings</h3>
  660. - some extra wiki-wide stats are displayed on the [[site:list/|Listings index]]!
  661. - divided the [[site:list/artists/by-contribs/|Artists - by Contributions]] and [[site:list/artists/by-latest/|Artists - by Latest Contribution]] listings into two columns for easier exploring: "Track Contributors" and "Track &amp; Flash Contributors"
  662. - added two new listings, for the new tags feature:
  663. - [[site:list/tags/by-name|Tags - by Name]]
  664. - [[site:list/tags/by-uses|Tags - by Uses]]
  665. <h3>track pages</h3>
  666. - made the index of the current track show next to the track name in the navbar
  667. - made the start and end indexes of each group show next to group names in the sidebar
  668. - divided the sidebar into groups for a bunch of albums (see data changes section)
  669. <h3>bug fixes</h3>
  670. - fixed a bug where chronology links (e.g "413th track by Toby Fox") for track artists weren't being displayed anymore
  671. - fixed a bug where artists with zero contributions (e.g. only commentary) would display as "( c.)" instead of "(0 c.)" in artist listings
  672. - fixed a bug where flash names would <i>always</i> have the dot at the end of the name removed, instead of only when punctuation follows
  673. - fixed some bugs with release date code where the [[site:list/artists/by-latest/|Artists - by Latest]] listing would not count unique dates of cover art contributions (e.g. in anthology projects where fanart is added after the release of the album), and where the cover art release date displayed on album pages was ambiguous (previously it displayed the date of track art for the whole album; now it displays - or, if it is the same as album release, does not display - the date of cover art for the album itself)
  674. - fixed a bug on artist pages where tracks that are featured in more than one flash would display flashes past the first feature as "1", "2", "3", etc, instead of the actual flash names
  675. - fixed a bug on artist pages where co-artists of tracks (but not track art) weren't being displayed anymore
  676. - fixed a bug where the random official album link in the [[site:list/random/|Random Pages]] listing would instead open a random track across the whole site
  677. - made all the links on the [[site:list/random/|Random Pages]] listing behave more like regular links (ctrl-click works for example)
  678. <h3>data changes</h3>
  679. - five new albums archived: [[album:hiveswap-act-2-ost]], [[album:homestuck-for-the-holidays]], [[album:tomb-of-the-ancestors]], [[album:the-genesis-project-vol-1]], [[album:oceanfalls-vol-3]]; plus the track [[album:perfectly-generic-object]]
  680. - grouped tracks in a bunch of releases: [[album:alternia]], [[album:squiddles]], [[album:strife]], [[album:alterniabound]], [[album:homestuck-vol-7]], [[album:the-wanderers]], [[album:homestuck-vol-1-4]], [[album:homestuck-vol-8]], [[album:coloUrs-and-mayhem-universe-a]], [[album:coloUrs-and-mayhem-universe-b]], [[album:homestuck-vol-9]], [[album:one-year-older]], [[album:genesis-frog]], [[album:sburb-ost]], [[album:lofam2]], [[album:lofam3]], [[album:beforus]], [[album:ancestral]], [[album:lofam4]], and [[album:hiveswap-act-1-ost]]

  690. - updated the youtube link for [[track:purple-tyrant]] to be the official upload

  922. <h3>listings</h3>
  923. - completely new pages for exploring the wiki in completely new ways; they serve as an alternative to writing a dynamic search engine, because github doesn't let us write a custom backend and client-side javascript sucks
  924. - all linked from [[site:list/|listings index]], accessible through the sidebar
  925. - there are nine of these but if you doubt i'm going to list them all, you're wrong
  926. - [[site:list/albums/by-name/|Albums - by Name]]: every album, sorted alphabetically
  927. - [[site:list/albums/by-date/|Albums - by Date]]: every album, sorted chronologically (at the time this was no different than the homepage grid listing's sort, but today it contains fandom albums interweaved with official ones)
  928. - [[site:list/albums/by-tracks/|Albums - by Tracks]]: every album, sorted by number of tracks
  929. - [[site:list/artists/by-name/|Artists - by Name]]: every artist, sorted by name (this also shows the number of contributions each artist has made next to their name)
  930. - [[site:list/artists/by-commentary/|Artists - by Commentary]]: every artist, sorted by number of commentary entries
  931. - [[site:list/artists/by-contribs/|Artists - by Contributions]]: every artist, sorted by number of contributions (times credited as a contributor, to music or art, on any track or album)
  932. - [[site:list/tracks/by-name/|Tracks - by Name]]: every track, sorted alphabetically
  933. - [[site:list/tracks/by-album/|Tracks - by Album]]: every track, grouped by album
  934. - [[site:list/tracks/by-date/|Tracks - by Date]]: every track, grouped by release date
  935. <h2 id="19-nov-19"><a href="#19-nov-19">[[date:19 November 2019]] - grouped artist listings</a></h2>
  936. - artist page credit listings have been sigificantly restructured ([[root:media/misc/changelog/old-artist-page.png|before]], [[root:media/misc/changelog/new-artist-page.png|after]])
  937. - contributions are now grouped by album (or more specifically, by release date, which is noteworthy in the case of [[album:Homestuck Vol. 1-4]], which was originally released over a period of four distinct dates, plus one for the final compiled album release)
  938. - because it's easy to see where tracks are referenced now, dim contribution lines (showing tracks which reference a track by the specific artist, but were not otherwise contributed to by them) have been removed
  939. - the lists aren't numbered anymore because, with this grouping, it was sort of ambiguous whether that referred to a track's position in the album or if it was a continuous counter of the artist's contributions (it was the latter); both such counters can now be displayed by holding still the cursor over a contribution line for a moment
  940. - removed a few referenced-track contributions i'd missed switching to the new format (distinct reference lists) earlier
  941. <h2 id="18-nov-19"><a href="#18-nov-19">[[date:18 November 2019]] - high-res cover art</a></h2>
  942. - copied cover art from <a href="">this archive</a>, which was originally compiled by clicking each cover art off the bandcamp to get a higher-resolution cover art (it is intentionally still less than the resolution gotten in purchased album downloads, for particularly high-res art)
  943. - commentary for [[album:Hiveswap Act 1 OST]]
  944. <h2 id="16-nov-19" class="major-release"><a href="#16-nov-19">[[date:16 November 2019]] - track references &amp; commentary</a></h2>
  945. <h3>homepage</h3>
  946. - got rid of the twitter link on my name and added two links in its place - my twitter and reddit accounts - as well as a note that suggestions and feedback are welcome
  947. <h3>track pages</h3>
  948. - track references show up in a dedicated list now
  949. - forward-facing reference links: track pages list not just the tracks they reference, but the tracks <i>which reference them</i>
  950. - reference data is from <a href=""><dfn title="nobody knows what NSND stands for">NSND</dfn></a> (credited on the homepage)
  951. - "listen on" links show up before the contributor list instead of after; reference list after contributor list
  952. - at the very bottom, a new section for artist commentary, largely copied from <a href="">this pastebin</a>
  953. <h3>artist pages</h3>
  954. - added a message describing dim contribution lines: "Dim tracks are tracks that this artist contributed only a based-upon song to."
  955. - for tracks with multiple contributors, those are listed as well, e.g. "(with Michael Guy Bowman)"
  956. - note that this doesn't include "contributors" who only provided a referenced track, since those are now stored in a list separate from the contributors list
  957. - a new section for commentary
  958. - a "jump to" paragraph at the top, to quickly scroll to any of the track/art/commentary sections
  959. <h2 class="major-release" id="15-nov-19"><a href="#15-nov-19">[[date:15 November 2019]] - initial release</a></h2>
  960. <h3>initial release of the website</h3>
  961. - published <a href="">on github</a> with code under the GPL; hosted on
  962. - advertised exclusively <a href="">on reddit</a>
  963. - (and maybe twitter but my account has long been deleted)
  964. <h3>homepage</h3>
  965. - an intro message which has since been moved to [[static:about|About &amp; Credits]]
  966. - a grid listing for the albums: all official releases, from [[album:Midnight Crew: Drawing Dead]] through [[album:Hiveswap Friendsim]]
  967. <h3>album pages</h3>
  968. - album name, release date, track listing, cover art &amp; art credits
  969. - solo albums also show their artist
  970. <h3>track pages</h3>
  971. - track name, release date, artists (musicians), cover art &amp; art credits
  972. - links to listen to the track too (and code to convert URLs into human-readable site names, e.g. "YouTube" or "Bandcamp" or "(External)")
  973. - rudimentary leitmotif reference credits in the form of "Contributors" list
  974. - contributors list also contains credited collaborators on the track, e.g. producers, vocalists
  975. <h3>artist pages</h3>
  976. - name, track and art credits
  977. - artist pages look quite different from today but serve the same purpose of listing their contributions
  978. - [[root:media/misc/changelog/old-artist-page.png|here's an example]]
  979. - credits are all in one numbered list; most are just the name of the track contributed to and the album it's from
  980. - for tracks where an artist made a specific contribution, that's mentioned too, e.g. "Sburban Countdown (arrangement)"
  981. - if a musician's contribution is simply a track which was referenced, the line for that contribution is slightly dim (it still contributes to the counter)
