update mp3 metadata and file/directory names using the discogs api

Project description

Discognition

Discognition is a command line tool to reorganize your media library. It uses data available from the Discogs API to add/modify ID3 tags, change file names and alter library directory structure.

Requirements

  • python3
  • Discogs account (free)

Installation & Setup

  • Install via pip pip install discognition (required python packages: mutagen and discogs_client)

  • You need to have a Discogs account in order to get a Discogs API token. Once you have registered for an account, you can generate or access your user token at https://www.discogs.com/settings/developers

  • Add your Discogs API user-token and your music library directory using the --generateconfig option:

discognition -g TOKEN /PATH/TO/LIBRARY
  • Or if you prefer to create your config file manually, add the following to ~/.discognition-conf.yaml:
token: TOKEN
directory: /PATH/TO/LIBRARY

Usage

discognition [-h] [-t [TAG [TAG ...]]] [-p] [-rn] [-rd] [-i] [-R] [-s ]
                    [-g [[...]]] [--require-durations] [-v]
                    [directory]
