SnagLyrics (Beta)

SnagLyrics is a simple app to import lyrics into iTunes for viewing on the ipod. It uses 2 different databases (LyrDB and LyricsPlugin.com) and MusicBrainz fingerprinting to achieve a high success rate. It also uses my MTAudio library I posted earlier. Cheers.

Looks professional. Thanks.

If it had an iTune-ish gui then it'd look a lot better.

Glad you like the app. IMHO the iTunes GUI is ugly though. I use iTunes becauase of its stellar ipod support and COM interface not its GUI.

It keeps telling me I don't have internet, when I know I do. Could you possibly add a small ping in there to make sure or possibly give an option to not prompt me, as this would be great to leave running for a few hours while I add lyrics to my 80gb set of music...

A few other minor things:

* Make the edit not scroll horizontally automatically (take out the $ES_AUTOHSCROLL style)

* Option to not report skipped songs?

* Have a better counter system, e.g. Done: ###, skipped: ###, failed: ###, total: ### / ####

* Is this what you intended with the progress?

I'll take a look and see whats wrong with the code for checking the internet. I'm also going to change the prompt for no internet to a simple message in t the edit box so it can continue right after it goes back up.

A few other minor things:

1 Make the edit not scroll horizontally automatically (take out the $ES_AUTOHSCROLL style)

2 Option to not report skipped songs?

3 Have a better counter system, e.g. Done: ###, skipped: ###, failed: ###, total: ### / ####

4 Is this what you intended with the progress?

1.Thanks. Will do.

2.Sounds like a good idea. on the TODO after the other things are fixed.

3. Also on the todo list.

4. There should be a function in there to redraw the status bar when the window is minimized. That happened to me until I added the code. Maybe it got lost or is flawed. I'll take a look.

All in all, Thank you very much Mat for the useful feedback. and AC/DC rules btw (Wheres whole lotta rosie?) =P

few other bits:

1. Option to export failures (and optionally skipped) as a text file (or csv maybe), a playlist is a good idea though.

2. Resizing for the GUI (should be simple to implement)

Good work though, it works very well.

The export option sounds good.

Resizing is a definite.

That quote thing should be a simple stringreplace. =)

Thanks I will integrate your changes into the current version I am working on. I changed a lot of things the biggest of which is having the importing engine in a separate process to easily avoid any lockup issues and make maintaining the code easier. This also means anyone with basic programming skills could write a custom interface in their programming language of choice. A download should be available in the coming days.

Edit:Spelling

Updated to V0.6B

Now has the importing engine in a separate command line process to make things a lot more stable among other things.

Still to be implemented:

-GUI Resizing (using mat's very generous offer of code)

-Check for internet connectivity

-Log files

Get it above and please report if you find any bugs.

Cheers.

Edit:There is a small bug with the button icon not changing back after a job is done. It will be fixed in the next release

Any status bar fixes?

The status bar should work as intended now. It seemed when the internet went down the code would hang and the progress bar would get corrupt. The main code being in a separate process fixed the status bar problem as far as I can tell.

I found it was going wrong when I resized the GUI using the code I gave you... I'll do some more testing later today.

Thanks. =)

Anything else you noticed? The gui feels a lot smoother to me which is a big plus.

Updated to 0.6.1 Beta

  • Fixed a bug with button icon not changing back after job is done
  • Modified Syntax of SLCore.exe and included a text file showing it's syntax so it can be used by others

Download from the link in first post.

Please note. Using SLCore.exe you can import lyrics from the command line or even write your own GUI. =)
