Python bindings for Musicbrainz' NGS webservice
Branch: master
Clone or download
Freso Specify supported version(s) of Python in
This specifies which versions of Python the library is compatible with.
This both prevents the module from being installed in an incompatible
Python environment, and will also enable users after future releases to
still `pip install musicbrainzngs` and get a version that is compatible
with their Python setup.

Versions are based on the ones currently being tested for in Travis
according to `.travis.yml`.

Musicbrainz NGS bindings

This library implements webservice bindings for the Musicbrainz NGS site, also known as /ws/2 and the Cover Art Archive.

For more information on the musicbrainz webservice see


# Import the module
import musicbrainzngs

# If you plan to submit data, authenticate
musicbrainzngs.auth("user", "password")

# Tell musicbrainz what your app is, and how to contact you
# (this step is required, as per the webservice access rules
# at )
musicbrainzngs.set_useragent("Example music app", "0.1", "")

# If you are connecting to a different server

See the file for more examples.
