Use musk to impart the demonic scent of musk to your music. Musk allows you to extract tags from MP3 files and perfume MP3 files with fragrant tags.
If you're on Ubuntu, you need to have the following packages
musk depends on: ruby-dev and libtag1-dev. To install
these dependencies, you can use:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ruby-dev libtag1-dev
If you're on Mac OS X, you can use:
brew update brew install taglib
When you have all the necessary dependencies, you can use:
gem install musk
musk command delegates to subcommands based on its
first argument. The most common subcommands are:
To extract tags from an MP3 file, run
musk extract with the path to
the MP3 file. For example,
musk extract ~/tracks/bonobo/jets.mp3 Path: jets.mp3 Title: Jets Position: 6/13 Artist: Bonobo Release: The North Borders Genre: Electronic Year: 2013 Comment: -
To extract tags from MP3 files in a directory and its subdirectories,
musk extract with the path to the directory. For example,
musk extract ~/tracks Path: bonobo/jets.mp3 Title: Jets Position: 6/13 Artist: Bonobo Release: The North Borders Genre: Electronic Year: 2013 Comment: - Path: emancipator/kamakura.mp3 Title: Kamakura Position: 4/14 Artist: Emancipator Release: Safe In The Steep Cliffs Genre: Electronic Year: 2010 Comment: -
To see the output in the csv format, run
musk extract --format csv.
musk extract --format csv ~/tracks bonobo/jets.mp3,Jets,6/13,Bonobo,The North Borders,Electronic,2013,- emancipator/kamakura.mp3,Kamakura,4/14,Emancipator,Safe In The Steep Cliffs,Electronic,2010,-
--format csv option prints MP3 tags in the following order:
path, title, position, artist, release, genre, year, comment.
--format csv option allows you to effectively combine
several commands together. For example,
musk extract --format csv ~/tracks | cut -d',' -f2 Jets Kamakura
