Lyricist

Lyricist prints the lyrics of the currently playing song to the shell. The program grabs the track information from the operating system and scrapes various websites for lyrics.

News

09.24.14 - Rhythmbox is currently supported.

09.15.14 - Development has resumed. I am in the process of converting Lyricist to Python 3.

05.26.14 - SongLyrics.com is now supported.

05.20.14 - A functional version of lyricist now exists.

Supported sources:

  1. AZLyrics.com
  2. SongLyrics.com

Supported Music Players:

  1. Banshee
  2. Rhythmbox

To be implemented:

  1. Support for other common media players
  2. Support for other sources of lyrics
  3. Improvements to the way Lyricist searches for lyrics. If a title includes superfluous words such as "feat." lyricist may not find any lyrics.

Known bugs:

  • SongLyrics.com often gives a blank "page" of lyrics. This is in contrast with their "No Lyrics Found" page, which the program correctly handles. The program outputs a series of spaces. This bug will be further investigated.
