Types Plugin#

The types plugin lets you declare types for attributes you use in your library. For example, you can declare that a rating field is numeric so that you can query it with ranges—which isn’t possible when the field is considered a string (the default).

Enable the types plugin as described in Plugins and then add a types section to your configuration file. The configuration section should map field name to one of int, float, bool, or date.

Here’s an example:

    rating: int

Now you can assign numeric ratings to tracks and albums and use range queries to filter them.:

beet modify "My favorite track" rating=5
beet ls rating:4..5

beet modify --album "My favorite album" rating=5
beet ls --album rating:4..5
