Beets is the media library management system for obsessive music geeks.

The purpose of beets is to get your music collection right once and for all. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes. It then provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music.

Here's an example of beets' brainy tag corrector doing its thing:

$ beet import ~/music/ladytron
    Ladytron - Witching Hour
(Similarity: 98.4%)
 * Last One Standing      -> The Last One Standing
 * Beauty                 -> Beauty*2
 * White Light Generation -> Whitelightgenerator
 * All the Way            -> All the Way...

Because beets is designed as a library, it can do almost anything you can imagine for your music collection. Via plugins, beets becomes a panacea:

If beets doesn't do what you want yet, writing your own plugin is shockingly simple if you know a little Python.


You can install beets by typing pip install beets. Beets has also been packaged in the software repositories of several distributions. Check out the Getting Started guide for more information.
