Download lyrics and metadata from Genius.com
LyricsGenius - a Python client for the Genius.com API
This repository is intended to provide an easy interface for programatically accessing the song information stored on Genius.com. Check out my blog post for a more thorough description of the package and its usage.
To use the Genius API you'll need to sign up for a (free) client that authorizes you to access their API. You'll need to supply your
client_access_token from Genius when using this module. See Usage below for an example.
LyricsGenius requires Python 3.
Install the package via PyPI using
pip install lyricsgenius
Or, install the latest version from GitHub:
pip install git+https://github.com/johnwmillr/LyricsGenius.git
Import the package and search for songs by a given artist:
import lyricsgenius as genius api = genius.Genius("my_client_access_token_here") artist = api.search_artist("Andy Shauf", max_songs=3)
Search for a single song by the same artist:
song = api.search_song("To You", artist.name)
Add the song to the artist object:
Save the artist's songs to a JSON file:
You can also call the package from the command line:
export GENIUS_CLIENT_ACCESS_TOKEN="my_client_access_token_here" python3 -m lyricsgenius --help
Search for and save lyrics to a given song:
python3 -m lyricsgenius song "Begin Again" "Andy Shauf" --save
Search for five songs by 'The Beatles' and save the lyrics:
python3 -m lyricsgenius artist "The Beatles" --max-songs 5 --save
