A program to write metadata from to a comic archive

Project description


PyPI version Codacy Badge Codacy Badge Build Status

Quick Description

A command-line tool to tag comic archives with metadata from


  • PyPi

    Install it yourself:

      $ pip3 install --user metron-tagger
  • GitHub

    Installing the latest version from Github:

      $ git clone
      $ cd metron-tagger
      $ python3 install


  1. Why no cbr (rar) support?

    • I'm not aware of any provider (Comixology, Humble Bundle, DriveThru Comics, etc.) of legally downloadable DRM-free comics that use the rar format.
    • It's a non-free software file format.
    • It is trivial to convert to cbz (zip) format.
