Sumaid requested to merge Sumaid/gnome-music:songeditor into master

Depends on

Tags Supported

  • Title
  • Album
  • Artist
  • Track Number
  • Album Disc Number
  • Creation Year
  • Album Artist
  • Musicbrainz Ids (Recording, Release, Release Group and Artist)

Current Implementation

  • Browse through multiple matches returned from acoustid query operation
  • Able to edit tags manually
  • Tag Fields can be filled with current suggestion using 'Use Suggestion' button
  • Submit will update the tags with whatever was there in entry fields

Current Limitations (May 2020)

  • Too many suggestions sometimes. We need a way to filter and sort the results.

update 2019-11-11

  • fixed some rebasing issues
  • fixed some code style issues

  • suggestions are now ordered by (year, album title) (they were not sorted before)
  • misc cleanups and simplifications
