    An open-source Shazam client for Linux, written in Rust.

    Related: songrec. Similar tool, written in Rust. Haven't used shaq yet but it seems simpler?

  • nixpkgs

    Nix Packages collection & NixOS

    If you want to test this without python versions, pip, whatnot you can use `nix run github:figsoda/nixpkgs/shaq#shaq -- --listen` or `nix shell github:figsoda/nixpkgs/shaq#shaq` and use `shaq` in your temp shell.

    Or, once this @figsoda PR[0] gets merged and it gets in the nixpkgs unstable you can use `nix run nixpkgs#shaq -- --listen` or `nix shell nixpkgs#shaq` instead.
