Flashbake-iTunes

Flashbake-iTunes is a plugin for Flashbake that adds information for the current track into the automatically generated commit message.

The plugin uses Applescript to get the track information because of the nice Applescript hooks available in iTunes. There are a couple disadvantages to this, though--(1) this plugin will only work on Mac OS X, and (2) Python must call an external script, adding complexity and possibly processing overhead, and essentially creating a "Frankenscript." It works well, though.

Installation and Use

Copy itunes.py and current_track.scpt to ~/.flashbake/plugins/ (create this folder if it doesn't exist).

Add the following line to your .flashbake file in your local project:

plugins:itunes:iTunes

Test that the plugin works:

flashbake -c /path/to/local/project

Customization

By default the iTunes plugin adds three lines to your commit message:

Track title
Artist - Album
1:03/4:43 - * * * *

This message is generated by current_track.scpt. You can modify the Applescript to customize the output of the track information.
