Salve te Wanderer!¶
What is this about?¶
This is the documentation to plyr, a Wrapper around libglyr, a library for finding and downloading all sort of music-related metadata from a collection of providers. It’s written in C and therefore available for musicplayers written directly in that language, or for programs that used the commandline interface glyrc.
Use pip to install the package from source:sudo pip install plyr
Manual Installation (most recent):
Install libglyr if not done yet. Either..
- ... compile from Source: https://github.com/sahib/glyr/wiki/Compiling
- ... or use the package your distribution provides.
- ... in doubt, compile yourself. I only test the latest version.
Install cython if not done yet:sudo pip install cython
Build & install the Wrapper:git clone git://github.com/sahib/python-glyr.git cd python-glyr sudo python setup.py install
Silly question. You’re looking at it. But when we’re on it: There are only a few chapters, since there is not so much to cover. Every chapter is split into a description, and a reference. After all those theory chapters you are going to be rewarded by some practical examples.
Please have fun.
Other things to note?¶
Please use a own useragent, if you integrate glyr into your application. You can set it via:
qry.useragent = 'projectname/ver.si.on +(https://project.site)'
Why? In case your application makes strange things and causes heavy traffic on the provider’s sites, they may ban the user-agent that makes this requests. So, only your project gets (temporarly) banned, and not all libglyr itself.
