Sweeper : Automatically tag your music collection with metadata from Last.fm

by 1 other (via)
A while back Last.fm released a command line tool to retrieve metadata for an arbitrary mp3 from their new fingerprint database. I tried it yesterday and it seemed way better than MusicBrainz. So, as a person with a lot of random mp3s, I cooked up a script for retagging entire folders of songs.

Last.fm Tagger

So, I'm trying my hand at Cocoa, namely RubyCocoa. Objective-C is a bit out of my grasp right now. If I start needing big performance boosts, I'll go that route. In the meantime, writing RubyCocoa apps is insanely fun. I wrote this basic tagger in 2 days (roughly 6 hours) and it works pretty well! If you plan on trying out this app, create a small playlist with the name 'lastfmtagger' and put a few albums in there.
