A parser and serializer for ID3v2 tags

Project Description

An ID3 parser and serializer for Python 3.

Example Usage

Creating an ID3 tag from scratch

Input:

from id3parse import ID3, ID3TextFrame

id3 = ID3.from_scratch()

id3.add_frame(ID3TextFrame.from_scratch('TIT2', 'Why Don\'t You Get A Job?'))
id3.add_frame(ID3TextFrame.from_scratch('TPE1', 'The Offspring'))

print(id3.serialize())

Output:

b'ID3\x04\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00=TIT2\x00\x00\x00\x1a\x00\x00\x03Why Don\'t You Get A Job?\x00TPE1\x00\x00\x00\x0f\x00\x00\x03The Offspring\x00'

Parsing an ID3 tag

Input:

from id3parse import ID3

id3 = ID3.from_byte_array(b'ID3\x04\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00=TIT2\x00\x00\x00\x1a\x00\x00\x03Why Don\'t You Get A Job?\x00TPE1\x00\x00\x00\x0f\x00\x00\x03The Offspring\x00')

for f in id3.frames:
    print(f)

Output:

TIT2: Why Don't You Get A Job?
TPE1: The Offspring

Loading and saving an ID3 tag

from id3parse import ID3, ID3TextFrame

id3 = ID3.from_file('01 - The Offspring - Why Dont You Get A Job.mp3')

id3.add_frame(ID3TextFrame.from_scratch('TPE1', 'The Offspring'))
id3.add_frame(ID3TextFrame.from_scratch('TIT2', 'Why Don\'t You Get A Job?'))

id3.to_file()

Querying frames

from id3parse import ID3, ID3TextFrame

id3 = ID3.from_file('01 - The Offspring - Why Dont You Get A Job.mp3')

tpe1 = id3.find_frame_by_name('TPE1')    # Returns a frame, fails if more than one
tpe1.text = 'The Offspring'              # frame with this name is available

privs = id3.find_frames_by_name('PRIV')  # Returns a list of frames
for priv in privs:
    print(priv)

id3.to_file()
