Metadata for humans

Metadata extract metadata from files, without having to deal with exotic library compilation, complex API or multiple libraries. Give Metadata a file and it will return a dictionnary with your precious metadata.

>>> import metadata
>>> metadata = metadata.extract(file)
>>> metadata.get('creation_date')
datetime.datetime(2010, 9, 28, 7, 51, 8)
>>> metadata.get('title')


Extract metadata from almost any kind of files : video, music and other.


To install metadata, use pip :

$ pip install metadata


Metadata uses hachoir behind the scenes.
