Documentation

liblinker

This utility creates an organized album -> artist -> track directory structure from a given folder containing music files. If you…

  • Want to organize your massive torrent folder while keeping everything seeding
  • Want to merge multiple music folders into one location
  • Don’t have permission to move the original files
  • Want to keep iTunes files or other junky application files out of your original library (use liblinker -> point iTunes/whatever at the output directory)

This is for you.

Hard links are used when possible, otherwise symlinks are used. Also supports moving or copying instead of linking, if you're into that sort of thing...

Supported formats: MP3, FLAC, Wave, MP4 (M4A/AAC)

Requires Python 3.4+

pip install liblinker
