Fuzzy Search Plugin¶
The fuzzy plugin provides a prefixed query that searches your 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 Using Plugins). You’ll then be able to use the ~ prefix to use fuzzy matching:
$ beet ls '~Vareoldur' Sigur Rós - Valtari - Varðeldur
To configure the plugin, make a fuzzy: section in your configuration file. The available options are:
- threshold: The “sensitivity” of the fuzzy match. A value of 1.0 will show only perfect matches and a value of 0.0 will match everything. Default: 0.7.
- prefix: The character used to designate fuzzy queries. Default: ~, which may need to be escaped in some shells.
