This plugin helps you keep track of newly imported music in your library.
To use the
importfeeds plugin, enable it in your configuration
(see Using Plugins).
To configure the plugin, make an
importfeeds: section in your
configuration file. The available options are:
absolute_path: Use absolute paths instead of relative paths. Some applications may need this to work properly. Default:
dir: The output directory. Default: Your beets library directory.
formats: Select the kind of output. Use one or more of:
- m3u: Catalog the imports in a centralized playlist.
- 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.
- echo: Do not write a playlist file at all, but echo a list of new file paths to the terminal.
m3u_name: Playlist name used by the
relative_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. Default: None.
Here’s an example configuration for this plugin:
importfeeds: formats: m3u link dir: ~/imports/ relative_to: ~/Music/ m3u_name: newfiles.m3u
