I have at least four avocado boxes of cd’s in my basement, many of them damaged by decades of shipping around the country without their cases. A lot of them are ripped, and I also download live recordings thanks to bt.etree.org all the time. All this data has almost filled a terabyte cloud drive. Plus it’s scattered all over a pile of old hard drives and home directory backups. Finally, I want an easy way to keep my old phone active as a stereo receiver via VLC.
So, Tapedeck strives to organize this type of music collection and provide a way for you to enjoy your music.
I’ve had some scripts around for a while to manage my music, but I’ve never built them into anything bigger partly because they require some complicated programming techniques that I never really mastered. Now that I have found some easier ways to program this type of thing, I feel like I can put it all together into a nifty python package.
Install Homebrew - “The missing package manager for macOS”.
Install some handy programs that tapedeck requires:
$ brew install python3 ffmpeg sox aria2 postgresql icecast2
- Install termux
- Install deps
- git clone http://github.com/zthompson47/tapedeck
- make it happen
- let me know
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
