Ogranize your music library. A Python3 program that renames all selected music/audio files in a folder with a specified naming convention. Names are generated from the metadata (ID3) from the audio files. Before using this program, use a metadata editor like MusicBrainz Picard, Beets or EasyTAG to add the correct metadata to the audio files.
- Rename many audio files at once
- Rename all files in subdirectories as well (recursive)
- Choose the naming convention (ex. track.title.flac or artist.track.year.mp3)
- Give a separator for the naming of the file (ex. track.title.flac or track_title.flac)
- Works on all systems that can run Python
- Supported audio formats
- MP3/MP2/MP1 (ID3 v1, v1.1, v2.2, v2.3+)
Note: When using the install script, TinyTag will be automatically installed
Installation and Usage
Method 1: Run installation script (Unix/Linux based OS only)
The installation script will move the python program to
~/.local/bin. Make sure that
~/.local/bin exists and that is added to $PATH.
git clone https://github.com/tdeerenberg/Musort.git cd Musort.git chmod +x install.sh ./install.sh
After that, simply use the command
musort to use the program.
Method 2: Clone repo and run manually (All Operating Systems)
Clone the repository and run the Python program
git clone https://github.com/tdeerenberg/Musort.git cd Musort pip install requirements.txt
After that, run the program with
Method 3: Docker installation
git clone https://github.com/tdeerenberg/Musort.git cd Musort docker build -t musort .
After the docker installation is complete, musort can be run with:
docker run --name musort --rm -v "/:/HostMountedFS" -it musort
Tip: You could alias something like
alias musortd="docker run --name musort --rm -v "/:/HostMountedFS" -it musort"then use
musortusage is explained above
