I’m in the middle of reviewing a lot of old code in Mizuu and I’ve been making lots of improvements that should make the app faster – especially if you’ve got a large library.
My primary focus right now is the update process, as this can potentially take quite a long time if you’ve got a large library, and I’m happy to say that I’ve already made it significantly faster. This is something you’ll especially notice with many files, as the runtime of the current implementation increases exponentially. The new and upcoming implementation is much smarter and can potentially be several thousand times faster. Yes, thousands. If you’ve got many movies, that is.
This is naturally only for the local file operations – there’s not much I can do regarding the network operations. I’ve made the switch to the latest version of the TMDb API, which should make things slightly faster, but it depends on a lot of factors.
My question to you guys: Are there any specific sections of Mizuu that you think take too long to load or maybe seem to be stuck at times? Let me know in the comments or by e-mail and I’ll see if I can make it better.
