An application I have been working on to help with tagging flacs of live shows

Hello All,

I have been working on an application called TagBot for a few weeks and it is getting near being complete (I have wanted to build this for around 20 years and just finally decided to a few weeks ago). The purpose of TagBot is to aid with the tagging of live shows. It does this by way of an SQLite database that I have designed. I currently have a database built for Dave Matthews Band (this includes dmb, dm, d&t, d&f) and intend to build one for the Smashing Pumpkins, beyond that it would be up to other communities to create them.

Basically the app will try to suss out the date of a show based on the directory name and then fill in the search field. If the date cannot be found you can manually enter one. Regardless of how this date is gotten you then click search and get the data for the show on that date. If multiple shows are returned you can select the correct one (this was absent from the video I shared). From there you are presented with the setlist on the left and the flac files on the right. You then drag and drop the titles to the files, if a file is multiple songs in one you can drag over multiple titles and the app will assemble them. If the number of setlist items matches the number of files you can click a button to map the titles over 1:1. It will also autofill the artist and album.

The format for the date, track title, and album are all configurable with a template system. The artist names are able to be transformed from "dmb" to "Dave Matthews Band".

Here is a quick demo video I made the other day, the application's UI is basically set but a number of features were missing from this video, including the saving of tags. I finished up the code to save tags this morning so the app should be completely functional at this point.

If this is an incorrect forum to announce this project then I apologize and ask that a mod please move it. I hope others in the community will find this useful. Once it is ready I intend to make the github repo public. TagBot is licensed under gplv3.

I suppose technobabble would have been a better place to post this. Can a mod please move this topic? Thanks

Thanks Lynne. I am attempting to make it useful for more than just me. I am hoping to make a Smashing Pumpkins and U2 database before I am completely burned out.

Well the first release of TagBot is up, and already replaced with a second release.

Basic usage can be found here. Be sure to watch the video for the flow of the application and also to download the database located here.

The releases can be found here.

If you have any issues please post them here or to the github issue tracker.

I created a Phish database a few days ago.

Re: An application I have been working on to help with tagging flacs of live shows

Hey all. Wanted to provide an update on TagBot.
I started a new feature last night, currently I am calling it Automate: Rapid Mode. Previously the automate button would map tags to files at a 1:1, this worked somewhat but was rather limited as usually the number of tags does not match the number of files. In this new mode the application will highlight a tag and the user double clicks on the file that it correlates to. If a file contains multiple tracks the user can double click the same file multiple times. If a mistake is made you can cancel and start over or just drag and drop the correction at the end. My wife wants me to add an undo button so I will be investigating if this is something I want to do. This feature is still in development but it is coming.

On a side note this application is useless without a database. I have created a DMB, Dead, and Phish database thus far. I still intend to create one for U2 and The Smashing Pumpkins. If anyone can think of any other bands I am open to suggestions here. Of course a user can also create their own database to use. If someone needs help with this I am more than willing to help with that. This process has been a thorn in my side for years and finally having a way to automate it has been a dream of mine.

To be clear TagBot is fully functional in its release state. As always if you find a bug please let me know and I will get it fixed asap or at least provide a work around for it.
