Looking for a {Artist -- Album} script for exporting

Post by Plethora » Thu Feb 26, 2004 2:11 am

:roll: Curious about this scripting stuff.

I'm looking to export a large list into a txt, html, or xls file. But I would like this format.

[Artist1] [Album]
[Artist2] [Album]
[Artist3] [Album]

This format would save ink for printing and redundancy. My guess is that I would want to use the path, but I guess I could use the library of MM, they're pretty much the same.

I have a .bat file that does this, though kind of retro it does work.
Here is an example...

tree /a > c:\docume~1\administrator\desktop\mp3tree.txt

If you create a .bat file with the dir pointing to your audio files this should create a .txt on your desktop. You can change where it exports the .txt to if you so desire.

So, my question is can anyone help me complete something like this in MM?

Thnx Again for a wonderful product!!


I've done a little scripting in other programs, not enough to brag

This might be a good start http://www.songs-db.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=701 it has a script doing it the other way around. Listing tracks per album.

It isn't that advanced as you'll need to sort the list you want to output in MM itself, but it gets the job done. Besides it can gives some hints on scripting.

PS. I haven't been able to confirm this but it seems that the names MM uses to link to the different fields have changed. At least this was reported in another thread.
