As written in irc, to have it here:

"Web Browser" may be useful for ported FF add-ons, but we currently are far away from recent FFs.

"Library & Playlists" sounds like it would be reasonable to have additional categories to cover other Music/Video-Related things, such as playback, sequencing.

There is currently no non-feather "Appearance" category.

I like the sound of "Tools & Utilities" more than "Miscellaneous", and thus would use the first as category for everything else Wink

Since there are only a couple add-ons that would fit under this right now, I think I'll leave this as a tag (maybe a "Firefox" tag as well for ported FF add-ons)

Good point, I'm thinking an additional category called "Sound & Playback" would work well for this.

I think the only add-on that would strictly fit this right now is Vinyl Album Art. Maybe the other album art add-ons as well. Personally I'd rather just use the Library & Playlists category for these (I have included "appearance" in its description)

Agreed!

I've now gone through all the current Nightingale add-ons and I think they all fall under at least one of the categories. Here is the updated list along with my descriptions for them. If anyone wants to suggest more changes to anything, please do.
  • Library & Playlists: Add-ons that customize the organization, appearance and displayed information of your media library and playlists
  • Sound & Playback: Add-ons that change how your media is played and equalized
  • Devices & Hardware: Add-ons that enable communication and synchronization with your external devices and computer hardware
  • Web Services: Add-ons that integrate with services on the Internet to provide additional media and content
  • Tools & Utilities: Add-ons that help with Nightingale development and provide other miscellaneous functions
  • Feathers: Add-ons that change the visual theme of Nightingale

Sounds good to me (but I still think the web browser category would be nice to have, albeit empty). I'd be interested if these categories would have been sufficient for all Songbird add-ons as well... but I'd guess yes (when assuming browser is Tools & Utilities). The only real exception I can think of are non-feather visual add-ons like pure player (but afaik not available for Nightingale).
Alright, I'll include the Web Browser category - I suppose even if it's not too useful right now, the web browsing feature is a unique feature of Nightingale, so it deserves some showcasing.

As for Appearance, I'd say we add in the category later if it's really needed (I think Pure Player could be argued to be more of a utility?)
