This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/musichoarder

Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean Python Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • flacon

    Audio File Encoder. Extracts audio tracks from an audio CD image to separate tracks.

    For splitting flac/cuesheets I use Flacon.

  • puddletag

    Powerful, simple, audio tag editor for GNU/Linux

    For subsequent tagging I use Puddletag or Picard. Puddletag's great for automated tagging as well as getting tags in great shape, customised tagging, formatting and renaming/moving folders and collateral. It also supports tag sources in addition to Musicbrainz.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

  • picard

    MusicBrainz Picard audio file tagger

  • audiometa

    Collection of Python scripts to curate audio metadata

    To ensure I consistently eliminate all unwanted tags and for deleting unwanted tags en-mass I use a Python script that does the job.

  • fdt

    FDT is an Application for Efficient Data Transfers which is capable of reading and writing at disk speed over wide area networks (with standard TCP). It is written in Java, runs an all major platforms and it is easy to use. FDT is based on an asynchronous, flexible multithreaded system and is using the capabilities of the Java NIO libraries.

    For bulk copying from at linespeed from my desktop to my music server I use FDT.

  • beets

    music library manager and MusicBrainz tagger

    beets (setting it to prefer discogs metadata over musicbrainz personally)
