How to install magnatune
- Download and install ActivePython
- Open Command Prompt
pypm install magnatune
python-magnatune provides a simple command line utility called magnatune that can be used to search the magnatune database and get the streaming urls.
For example, to get all the albums from Curl
magnatune --artist Curl
To get the streaming urls of all songs from Curl
magnatune --artist Curl --stream
The result can be user with mpc, for example to add all those songs to mpd
magnatune --artist Curl --stream | mpc add
If you have a subscription login and want to hear the music without ads, you can use it
magnatune --artist Curl --login login:passwd --stream
You can also download albums. This will download all the albums of curl, and extract them to the current dir
magnatune --artist Curl --login login:passwd --download --dlformat ogg --extract
Of course, there is a short version. With the login and dlformat set in my config file, I just do
magnatune -a Curl -de
python-magnatune requires python 3. I strongly recommend that you use virtualenv. With virtualenv installed, you can install python-magnatune by doing
pip install magnatune
To work with the development version, clone the repository at https://github.com/madjar/python-magnatune and do
pip install -e .
python-magnatune looks for default values of all arguments in the config file ~/.python-magnatune/config.ini. See config.ini.example for more information.
The source code is available on github.
