Pithosfly

A fork for Pithos, a native Pandora Radio client for Linux, that saves the stream you are listening to disk. It downloads, rips music intelligently, saving songs into mp3 files into individual folders, named after a radio stream. The files are properly tagged and the cover art is saved into the mp3.

Configure folder to save to by adding the following to pithos.ini (usually found in ~/.config/):

save_to=/path/to/folder

Run:

cd /folder/with/source

python3 -m pithos

Or to see verbose output run

python3 -m pithos -v

You can also build and install per Pithos' own instructions:

  • Remove if already installed installed
  • Get the prerequisites
sudo apt-get install python3-setuptools python3-dbus python3-gi python3-gi-cairo \
  gir1.2-gstreamer-1.0 gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 gstreamer1.0-plugins-good gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad  \
  python3-pylast gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1 gir1.2-notify-0.7 gir1.2-keybinder-3.0 gnome-icon-theme-symbolic \
  python3-mutagen

Note: that python3-mutagen is available for Ubuntu 15.10 and after, however it works fine on earlier releases. You can get it from here.

  • Then run

sudo ./setup.py install

(you might need some more libs for the latest pithos). More details here.

The original Pithos homepage is here.

This fork follows the mainline code commits.
