Update music info with public database data

eval echo $(echoprint-codegen "/path/to/file.mp3"| jq ' .[0].metadata | "mp3info -a \"" + .artist + "\" -t \"" + .title + "\" -l \"" + .release + "\" \"" + .filename + "\"" ' ) | bash
echoprint identify your song, then return artist, song name and album name(release) in a JSON. jq parse it and mp3info set the data in your mp3 file. of course it depends on: mp3info jq echoprint You need to set the environment variable export CODEGEN_NEST_API_KEY='YOUR_ECHONEST_KEY_HERE' You can use it with find, but probably will bypass the 120 request/minute of developer account key. So, use a sleep to do it. Something like: find -name \*.mp3 | while read $f; do eval echo $(echoprint-codegen "$f" | jq ' .[0].metadata | "mp3info -a \"" + .artist + "\" -t \"" + .title + "\" -l \"" + .release + "\" \"" + .filename + "\"" ' ) | bash; sleep 1; done
