Create automatic playlists.
MusicCabinet helps you create good playlists, based on your local music library.
- pick one or more genres (pop, 90s, piano...), and get a playlist of popular songs by artists matching these genres.
- pick an artist, and get a playlist of popular songs by related artists.
- pick an artist, and get a playlist of popular songs by that artist.
Browse by theme.
MusicCabinet also helps you browse your library, not by artist name, but rather by musical themes.
- pick a genre, and display your top artists that fits best in that category.
- pick an artist, and display your other artists that are most closely related.
- browsing is enhanced using artist image, artist biographies, genre descriptions, and album cover art.
How does it work?
- you run a PostgreSQL database on your own machine.
- the database stores information about your local music library (artists, albums, tracks).
- meta-data, such as related artists, top tracks, genres and image urls, is fetched from last.fm and stored.
- methods to help you browse your library or generate playlists are exposed through an API.
- MusicCabinet is a Java library, meant to be bundled with other applications.
