Download and display album art for mpd tracks.

Project description

🎵 bum

|PyPI| |MIT licensed| |Build Status|

``bum`` is a daemon that downloads album art for songs playing in
``mpd``/``mopidy`` and displays them in a little window. ``bum`` doesn't
loop on a timer, instead it waits for ``mpd``/``mopidy`` to send a
``player`` event. When it receives a ``player`` event it wakes up and
downloads album art for the current playing track. This makes ``bum``
lightweight and makes it idle at ``~0%`` CPU usage.

``bum`` uses `musicbrainz <>`__ to source and
download cover art, if an album is missing it's cover art you can easily
create an account and fill in the data yourself. ``bum`` outputs a
``release-id`` which you can use to find the exact entry on musicbrainz.

Note: ``bum`` is meant to be used with files that don't have embedded
album art (``mopidy-spotify``).
