Music Library OCD Fixer

My first open source project

As someone who used to spend way too much time beautifying and organizing my music collection, I always wanted something to automatically fetch metadata (track name, artist, album art etc.) for all my tracks in one go. I was learning about JSON and REST APIs at that time and decided to write a Python script to do just that. A friend also happened to maintain the perfect API for this.

Something amazing happened when I put my project up on GitHub: unknown people started adding new features to it. Someone added an extra feature for lyrics, and another person improved upon my CLI arguements for the script. I found all this very exciting, being a newbie to the whole social coding thing!
