Nightingale is a media player based on Songbird but it's also more than this.

We are also building add-ons, web platforms and other stuff.

Porting Songbird add-ons

It's quite easy and doesn't really require programming knowledge, documentation here.

Nightingale is missing some complete locales, you can help by localizing in your language! More information here.

We need rad illustrations to spice up our website. Wheter it is an illustration for a blogpost or for the frontpage, they are very welcome!

We don't have anything in that direction yet, so feel free!


Songbird gave a good documentation, but most of articles were out of date.

We need a refreshed documentation with brand new screen-shots and also documenting our changes.

Songbird documentation is backed up, we need people to adapt it and put it on this wiki.

We want more people to test Nightingale, and help us squish all bugs!

As a test subject, you will need to deal with multiple version of Nightingale and also Songbird.

More information on how to report bugs here, you can also help us complete the quality assurance wiki article.

Want to spread the word? We need you to tell the world about the player. Writing review, blog post, telling people etc. We will have some goodies for the best!

It's also on how to make a smart use of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+).

Have a look at the dedicate page for promotion.

Bug Bounty

You can put up a bounty for a bug, so a foreign developer might implement it when the team doesn't implement it as fast as you wished:

If you can't decide for a specific issue you can donate money to the Nightingale project on Bountysource (in the left bottom corner of the page) and we can then decide on which issue to place the bounty.


We are still debating on how we will handle donations.

We will need money for:

  • Web hosting (currently handled by Matt Parnell)
  • Goodies like stickers (currently handled by Antoine Turmel)
  • Hardware (To pay servers, computers)
  • Future events to promote Nightingale (currently handled by Antoine Turmel)
