There also seems to be some bogus in 1586 that has to do with firefly not finding or loading its plugins.
Do you have more details on this? I know there are some config page issues, and problems with initial db scan, but don’t think I remember the plugin thing.
I had some issue with 1586 where it would fail to start if i moved some plugins from the plugins directory. May have been due to still having the ssc* lines in the config file but not having the plugin available? Can’t remember now.
BTW, if you’re thinking about scripting languages, my vote is for python! 🙂
