Fuzzy Search Plugin

The fuzzy plugin provides a prefixed query that search you library using fuzzy pattern matching. This can be useful if you want to find a track with complicated characters in the title.

First, enable the plugin named fuzzy (see Plugins). You’ll then be able to use the ~ prefix to use fuzzy matching:

$ beet ls '~Vareoldur'
Sigur Rós - Valtari - Varðeldur

The plugin provides config options that let you choose the prefix and the threshold.:

    threshold: 0.8
    prefix: '@'

A threshold value of 1.0 will show only perfect matches and a value of 0.0 will match everything.

The default prefix ~ needs to be escaped or quoted in most shells. If this bothers you, you can change the prefix in your config file.
