Python bindings for Light Media Scanner

Project description

Python bindings for Light Media Scanner.

Lightweight media scanner meant to be used in not-so-powerful devices, like embedded systems or old machines.

Provides an optimized way to recursively scan directories, handling the parser in a child process, avoiding breaks of the main process when parsers break (quite common with such bad libs and tags). One can opt to use the single process version, but be aware that if something bad happens during parsing, your application will suffer.

Parsers are plugins in the form of shared objects, so it’s easy to add new without having to recompiling the scanner.

The scanner will use SQLite3 to store file-mtime association, avoiding parsing files that are already up-to-date. This SQLite connection and the file id within the master table ‘files’ are handled to plugins for relationship with other tables.
