~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                              musicfs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
musicfs is a FUSE module implementing a media filesystem in
userland. The purpose of musicfs is to provide filesystem hierarchy
based on id3 tags of mp3-files.


Usage
~~~~~
1. Compile:

$ make

2. Make the initial configuration with the provided script

$ bash initialize.sh

3. Start musicfs

$ ./musicfs <mountdir>

4. Add your music path(s) to <mountdir>/.config

$ echo "/storage/music" >> <mountdir>/.config


Screenshot
~~~~~~~~~~

This is a "screenshot" (not really, but it sounds cool) of musicfs,
displaying the hierarchy we expose. /tmp/music is my mountpoint, and
the paths are added to my music collection when I append them to
.config.

vannlilje:/tmp/music% echo ~/Music/mfs_demo > .config
vannlilje:/tmp/music% tree
