Tagtool allows you to perform mass ID3 tag cleaning operations.

Project description

Mass clean metadata of downloaded MP3 songs.

I wrote the initial version as a simple script that just worked. This tool later became an exercise in command line application design as I’d never done it before. It uses docopt (along with some hackery to allow sub-commands)

pip install tagtool

You could also use `pipsi <https://github.com/mitsuhiko/pipsi>`__ to install.
