Search engine for music related metadata

Glyr comes both in a command-line interface tool (glyrc) and as a C library (libglyr).

The sort of metadata glyr is searching (and downloading) is usually the data you see in your musicplayer. And indeed, originally it was written to serve as internally library for a musicplayer, but has been extended to work as a standalone program which is able to download cover art, lyrics, photos, biographies, reviews and more.


Install the latest version of glyr as follows:

guix install glyr

Or install a particular version:

guix install glyr@1.0.10

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
