beets plugin to copy non-music files to import path
A plugin that moves non-music files during the import process.
This is a plugin for beets: a music library manager and much more.
Installation of the plugin can be done using these commands:
git clone https://github.com/sbarakat/beets-copyartifacts.git cd beets-copyartifacts python setup.py install
If you get permission errors try running it with sudo
You will then need to enable the plugin in beets’ config.yaml
It can copy files by file extenstion:
copyartifacts: extensions: .cue .log
Or copy all non-music files (it does this by default):
copyartifacts: extensions: .*
It can also print what got left:
copyartifacts: print_ignored: yes
Renaming works in much the same way as beets Path Formats with the following limitations: - The fields available are $artist, $albumartist, $album and $albumpath. - The full set of built in functions are also supported, with the exception of %aunique - which will return an empty string.
Each template string uses a query syntax for each of the file extensions. For example the following template string will be applied to .log files:
paths: ext:log: $albumpath/$artist - $album
This will rename a log file to: ~/Music/Artist/2014 - Album/Artist - Album.log
plugins: copyartifacts paths: default: $albumartist/$year - $album/$track - $title singleton: Singletons/$artist - $title ext:log: $albumpath/$artist - $album ext:cue: $albumpath/$artist - $album ext:jpg: $albumpath/cover copyartifacts: extensions: .cue .log .jpg print_ignored: yes
This plugin was built out of necessity and to scratch an itch. It has gained a bit of attention, so I intend to maintain it where I can, however I doubt I will be able to spend large amount of time on it. Please report any issues you may have and feel free to contribute.
