Cool TauonMusicBox

Hello, I'm Pouria! aka ~red almost everywhere.
I've recently ported cool player to Slackware, TauonMusicBox! (well technically's been long time but finally got spare time to port them all)
You'll notice with a little scroll at README, here
This is my first posting at LinuxQuestions, so I wasn't sure I can intorduce software here or not. (Assume this question)

Nice one thanks, I'll test this player out! I'll see if it can knock Strawberry off the top of the list for me

Just on terminology, if you create a SlackBuild for a Linux program, that is to "package" it. Normally to "port" would mean it wasn't available for Linux (or some CPU architecture for example) and you altered the program's code to make it work on Linux, etc (at least that's how I understand it).

I bet it'll knock that
You have in-web radio listen sync, chord lyrics, really customizable UI.. It's amazing just check it out

Ah sure,
It had such ugly install so I had to make 10 package builders for it(Slackbuilds)
No one likes to install pip3's cause they'd be really hard to track and uninstall sometimes..
Also by default it'd rather use strange installation flatpak method(I hate third party installers snapd alike..)
