muspy Configuration

To use muspy's API, the follow plugin must be configured with the email address and password you used to register with muspy. It will also need your muspy User ID. If you do not know your User ID,

Sign in to muspy.com and click the Subscribe in a reader link (the RSS icon in the subnavigation). Your user ID can be extracted from the resulting URL: https://muspy.com/feed?id=<your userid>

Add the following to your Beets config.yaml.

follow:
    email: <your email>
    password: <your password>
    userid: <your userid>

Options

Add the auto option to the follow section of your Beets config.yaml to automatically follow an artist when an album of theirs is imported into your library.

follow:
    auto: yes

Setting the auto option will also unfollow an artist after an album removal if none of the artist's albums remain in your library.

Commands

beet follow [query]

Query can be any string following Beets' query string syntax.

All matched items will have their album artist (if one exists) added to muspy.

If no query is included, all album artists in your library will be added to muspy.

Similar to follow, all matched items will have their album artist (if one exists) removed from muspy.
