Without any more info I can't help (specific usage, config, videos, ...) . At first, it sounds like a problem on your side... check you are using latest version and you don't have other plugins slowing down your foobar installation.

There is nothing exotic on the gui (except the filtering), and can't experience any lag at all with a lot of playlists.
Scrolling works fine, the same than left and right menus or any other feature. Filtering is also pretty fast.

So a quick description: your video shos the red outline box right under the cursor as you move it. Mine has a second (or so) delay between mouse movement and red box movement, then another split second delay before the tooltip pops up. Left/right clicking produces another second-or-so delay from click to menu popup.

One thing I noticed from looking at console.log, is that I have many "[12:38:18 PM] Missing font: FontAwesome" lines, though I dont know what date they were written.

You have skipped the installation instructions. Read the readme pdf or the txt file instructions... you are missing at least one dependency. Not sure if you have other installation errors.

Fix that and then report.

I think I got it. I hadn't installed the font. Though this was buried in the docs and not directly stated ("Playlist manager requires some fonts.")

But it seems much more responsive now! Thanks

Yep, I will update the github page too to make it more obvious. The pdf is right and up to date but the page was created months ago when the docs were not present yet and is outdated. That's my fault. I have also updated the txt installation notes.

Code: [Select]
Some scripts may require additional files or dependencies (like fonts). Check the 'INFO' section
for more details, the github page and the related pdf documentation at 'readmes' folder (if available).

Btw the problem was the console logging. Everytime the font was required and not found, the console was flooded with missing font messages (instead of only warning once) thus slowing down the entire UI. Installing the font solved the problem, but that's also a fault on the code. I have changed it to display a popup (so users are warned clearly) and log to console once per session  (so the script will continue working fine without UI slowdowns).

Thanks for the report :)

Makes sense! Thanks for taking the time to fix the root issues! (docs, logging)
