Music Downloader ๐ŸŽถ ๐ŸŽง ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿฆ„

tests latest tag Python 3.6 pypi-version pypi-downloads

Features

  • download songs, albums, public playlists from Deezer.com (account is required, free plan is enough)
  • download Spotify playlists (by parsing the Spotify website and download the songs from Deezer)
  • download as zip file (including m3u8 playlist file)
  • 320 kbit/s (currently only 128 kbit/s, see this issue) mp3s with ID3-Tags and album cover
  • download songs via yt-dlp
  • KISS (keep it simple and stupid) front end
  • MPD integration (use it on a Raspberry Pi!)
  • simple REST api
  • proxy support (https/socks5)

How to use it

There is a settings file template called settings.ini.example. You can specify the download directory with download_dir. Pressing the download button only downloads the song/album/playlist. If you set use_mpd=True in the settings.ini the backend will connect to mpd (localhost:6600) and update the music database. Pressing the play button will download the music. If use_mpd=True is set the mpd database will be updated and the song/album/playlist will be added to the playlist. In settings.ini music_dir should be the music root location of mpd. The download_dir must be a subdirectory of music_dir.

As Deezer sometimes requires a captcha to login the auto login features was removed. Instead you have to manually insert a valid Deezer cookie to the settings.ini. The relevant cookie is the arl cookie. Important: The ARL cookie must be of a non-premium account!

kmille@linbox:deezer-downloader poetry run deezer-downloader --help
usage: deezer-downloader [-h] [-v] [-t] [-c CONFIG]

Download music from Deezer with a nice front end

options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -v, --version         show version and exit
  -t, --show-config-template
                        show config template. At least you have to insert the ARL cookie
  -c CONFIG, --config CONFIG
                        config file - if not supplied, the following directories are considered looking for deezer-downloader.ini: current working directory, XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable, ~/.config, /etc)

How to get it up and running

with pip

You can run pip install --user deezer-downloader. Then you can run ~/.local/bin/deezer-downloader --help

with Docker

You can use the Docker image hosted on hub.docker.com. Login into your free Deezer account and grab the arl cookie. Then:

mkdir downloads
sudo docker run -p 5000:5000 --volume $(pwd)/downloads/:/mnt/deezer-downloader --env DEEZER_COOKIE_ARL=changeme kmille2/deezer-downloader:latest 
xdg-open http://localhost:5000

with Vagrant

vagrant up
vagrant ssh
sudo vim /opt/deezer/settings.ini # insert your Deezer cookie
cd /opt/deezer && sudo poetry run deezer-downloader --config settings.ini

# On the host:
xdg-open http://localhost:5000 # view frontend in the browser
ncmpcpp -h 127.0.0.1 # try the mpd client

as a service

We use it with nginx and ympd as mpd frontend

  • / goes to ympd
  • /d/ goes to the downloader

The deployment directory contains a systemd unit file and a nginx vhost config file. There is also a patch to add a link to the ympd frontend. The debug tab will show you the debug output of the app.Shortcuts

If you want to debug or build it from source: there is a docker-compose file in the docker directory. The docker/downloads directory is mounted into the container and will be used as download directory. You have to check the permissions of the docker/downloads directory as docker mounts it with the same owner/group/permissions as on the host. The deezer user in the docker container has uid 1000. If you also have the uid 1000 then there should be no problem. For debugging: sudo docker-compose build --force-rm && sudo docker-compose up

developer setup (tested on Ubuntu Jammy)

  sudo apt-get update -q
  sudo apt-get install -qy vim tmux git ffmpeg

  # python3-poetry is too old (does not support groups ...)
  sudo apt-get install -qy python3-pip
  sudo pip install poetry
  git clone https://github.com/kmille/deezer-downloader.git
  cd deezer-downloader
  poetry install
  poetry run deezer-downloader --show-config-template > settings.ini

  # enable yt-dlp
  sudo pip install yt-dlp
  sed -i 's,.*command = /usr/bin/yt-dlp.*,command = /usr/local/bin/yt-dlp,' settings.ini

  # enable mpd
  sudo apt-get install -yq mpd ncmpcpp
  sudo sed -i 's,^music_directory.*,music_directory         "/tmp/deezer-downloader",' /etc/mpd.conf
  sudo systemctl restart mpd
  sed -i 's/.*use_mpd = False.*/use_mpd = True/' settings.ini

  # 1) Adjust the Deezer cookie: vim settings.ini
  # 2) Run tests: DEEZER_DOWNLOADER_CONFIG_FILE=settings.ini poetry run pytest -v -s
  # 3) Run it: poetry run deezer-downloader --config settings.ini
  # 4) Try out: ncmpcpp -h 127.0.0.1 && xdg-open http://localhost:5000
  # 5) Downloaded files are in /tmp/deezer-downloader

ctrl-m: focus search bar
Enter: serach for songs

Tests

cd deezer-downloader
DEEZER_DOWNLOADER_CONFIG_FILE=settings.ini poetry run pytest -v -s
# if you don't setDEEZER_DOWNLOADER_CONFIG_FILE the default template file will be used. Some tests will fail because there is no valid arl_cookie.
