For the past week I’ve been trying to track down the source code for an old open source .NET library called
sharepod-lib. It was open sourced in 2010 on Google Code, and then removed in 2012 or 2013. I’ve exhausted my Googling ability, and am asking for some assistance.
So far, I’ve tried Wayback Machine (it only archived a handful of the original source files), searching GitHub (no copies), searching Google for various class names, and even reaching out to the original author. My current thinking is that when the software was acquired in 2013 the repo was taken down, and the author no longer has the rights to distribute the software (however this is just a hunch as they’ve not yet replied to my email).
My goal is to update the library for .NET Core, making it cross-platform. I’ve only found three other libraries for interfacing with an iPod: gnupod (written in Perl, works well, but is a pain to distribute as a binary), libgpod (an absolute PITA to compile, and doesn’t seem to work with the few examples I’ve tried), and ipod-sharp (built around HAL which is deprecated on Linux).
If you happen to have a copy of the library, know someone who might have a copy, or have any tips on tracking down a copy, I’d really appreciate hearing from you!
