Beets plugin that defines some useful template fields to customize your path formats in a more lidarr way.

Project description

Beets - Lidarr Fields

This is a plugin for Beets. It provides some template fields to customize your path formats in a more Lidarr way. It works faster than using the built-in inline plugin because it evaluates those fields only once per album (same value for all tracks). Currently, this plugin provides three template fields:

  • releasegroupartist
    It refers to the "Release Group Artist" (or the first one if multiple) which is whom Lidarr links a release to.

  • lidarralbum
    Original album name, but with illegal characters replaced the same way Lidarr does it.

  • audiodisctotal
    Similar to beet's 'disctotal' field, only it ignores video medias like Blu-ray, DVD, etc.

Plugin only lightly tested by me. Use at your own risk!


To install it, use pip:

pip install beets-lidarr-fields


git clone
cd beets-lidarr-fields
python install


Enable the plugin in beets' config.yaml

plugins: lidarrfields

How to use it

Use it to build your path formats in beet's config.yaml, like it's explained in the Beets Docs. To make it look like Lidarr's default format, set it like:

    default: $releasegroupartist/$lidarralbum ($year)/%if{$audiodisctotal,$disc - }${track}. $title

per_disc_numbering: yes

Be aware that the aunique template function will (most likelly) not work on lidarralbum.
