linux default iconplow Publisher's description

Plow is a powerfull command-line tool for putting songs from your music collection into a playlist.

Plow is a powerfull command-line tool for putting songs from your music collection into a playlist. Most id3v2/ogg tag information is used by plow to create a (sqlite3) database for filtering. Additionaly plow supports fields like mood, tempo, language, etc.

What's New in This Release:

В· Version 0.0.3 contained a serious bug, which made it unusable.

System Requirements:

В· sqlite3 libs and binaries (best is >= 3.3)
В· taglib (1.4)


Download source code, then:

$ tar zxvf plow-x.y.z.tar.gz
$ cd plow-x.y.z
$ make
$ make install

If you use plow for the first time, it creates ~/.plow/plow.conf and ~/.plow/plow.sqlite.
Then edit ~/.plow/plow.conf and change at least path and player0 settings under [general] section. If you use Ogg/Vorbis files it is recommanded to change also the field names under [vorbis] section.


$ plow -I /path/to/music

to fill the database. This may take a long time.

That's it. Now you can try:
$ plow --help

or just create a playlist containing all files

$ plow
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
