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.
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 Music Players:
To be implemented:
- Support for other common media players
- Support for other sources of lyrics
- Improvements to the way Lyricist searches for lyrics. If a title includes superfluous words such as "feat." lyricist may not find any lyrics.
- 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.
