Pure Python package for retrieving details of songs in computer. The main purpose is to provide easiest possible interface for updating and retrieving information. For example the ID3 feature of multiple same named frames is not default, the default is the fact that single song most likely has single artist, title, album name, etc.
Why on earth would you want to create yet another tagger thingie? Simply there doesn't seem to be any decent tagging program licensed for free use, those which are free are under GPL, and that is no-no for most of the projects.
Note: Both of the dependencies are pure python packages.
Remember to first get the above dependencies.
This package uses
distutils and is easily installed using that:
$ setup.py install
Under Windows you can start the command prompt with administrator rights (by
cmd.exe and using "Run as administrator") then run the above
>>> import songdetails >>> song = songdetails.scan("data/song.mp3") >>> if song is not None: ... print song.duration 0:03:12
>>> import songdetails >>> song = songdetails.scan("data/commit.mp3") >>> if song is not None: ... song.artist = "Great artist" ... song.save()
songdetails has two project references:
mpeg1audio. It is best to create own workspace for this project, where you also add those two projects.
There exists two Eclipse launch configurations:
tests/Tests for songdetails.launch- Unit tests.
docs/SphinxDoc songdetails.launch- Generating documentation.
Using Eclipse you must go to Run Configurations dialog and run them once so they appear to the list.
