tool to tidy up your music chaos

Project Description
Musichaos
=========

Bring tidiness into your music chaos

--------------

``musichaos`` is a tool to tidy up the chaos in your local music library
on a file basis. It pulls the tags from the audio files and structures
the audio files like this:

::

~/music
│ ├── Artist 01
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01
│ │ │ │── Title 02
│ ├── Artist 02
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01
│ │ │ │── Title 02

Installation
------------

From pip:

.. code:: bash

pip install musichaos

From source:

::

git clone https://github.com/timofurrer/musichaos
cd musichaos
pip install .

Usage - Command Line Interface
------------------------------

``musichaos`` can be used as a CLI tool.

To use it just specify the root directory which contains your music
chaos and a target directory where to put the clean structure. They can
point to the same location.

::

musichaos ~/downloads ~/music

This will end up in the following structure

::

~/music
│ ├── Artist 01
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01
│ │ │ │── Title 02
│ ├── Artist 02
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01
│ │ │ │── Title 02

If you do not want to move the audio file but link them instead - run
the following command:

::

musichaos ~/downloads ~/music --link

This will end up in the following structure

::

~/music
│ ├── Artist 01
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01 -> ../../../downloads/Some_weird_audio_file_01.mp3
│ │ │ │── Title 02 -> ../../../downloads/Some_weird_audio_file_02.mp3
│ ├── Artist 02
│ │ └── Album 01
│ │ │ └── Title 01 -> ../../../downloads/Some_weird_audio_file_03.mp3
│ │ │ │── Title 02 -> ../../../downloads/Some_weird_audio_file_04.mp3

If you are not sure what ``musichaos`` will do - just do a dry run:

::

musichaos ~/downloads ~/music --dry-run

Let's have a look at the help message:

::

Usage: __main__.py [OPTIONS] ROOTDIR TARGETDIR

Tidy up your music chaos.

Options:
-l, --link Link audio files instead of move.
--dry-run Run a dry run.
--help Show this message and exit.

Usage - Python Package
----------------------

``musichaos`` can be imported in your python project, too. Just install
it in your python environment and ``import musichaos``:

.. code:: python

from musichaos import Musichaos

chaos = Musichaos(rootdir)
chaos.tidy_up(targetdir, link, dry_run)
