bum is a daemon that downloads album art for songs playing in
mopidy and displays them in a little window.
bum doesn't loop on a timer, instead it waits for
mopidy to send a
player event. When it receives a
player event it wakes up and downloads album art for the current playing track. This makes
bum lightweight and makes it idle at
~0% CPU usage.
bum uses musicbrainz to source and download cover art, if an album is missing it's cover art you can easily create an account and fill in the data yourself.
bum outputs a
release-id which you can use to find the exact entry on musicbrainz.
bum is meant to be used with files that don't have embedded album art (
pip3 install --user bum
usage: bum [-h] [--size "px"] [--cache_dir "/path/to/dir"] [--version] bum - Download and display album art for mpd tracks. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit --size "px" what size to display the album art in. --cache_dir "/path/to/dir" Where to store the downloaded cover art. --version Print "bum" version. --port Use a custom mpd port.
