importfeeds plugin helps you keep track of newly imported music in your library.
To use the plugin, just put
importfeeds on the
plugins line in your
configuration file. Then set a few options under the
importfeeds: section in the config file.
dir configuration option can be set to specify another folder
than the default library directory.
relative_to configuration option can be set to make the m3u paths
relative to another folder than where the playlist is being written. If you’re
using importfeeds to generate a playlist for MPD, you should set this to the
root of your music library.
absolute_path configuration option can be set to use absolute paths
instead of relative paths. Some applications may need this to work properly.
Three different types of outputs coexist, specify the ones you want to use by
m3u: catalog the imports in a centralized playlist. By default, the playlist is named
imported.m3u. To use a different file, just set the
m3u_nameparameter inside the
m3u_multi: create a new playlist for each import (uniquely named by appending the date and track/album name).
link: create a symlink for each imported item. This is the recommended setting to propagate beets imports to your iTunes library: just drag and drop the
dirfolder on the iTunes dock icon.
Here’s an example configuration for this plugin:
importfeeds: formats: m3u link dir: ~/imports/ relative_to: ~/Music/ m3u_name: newfiles.m3u
