Importing local data

Local music collection

The Beets music organiser is recommended for large music collections. You can use calliope.beets or cpe beets to list the contents of the Beets library.

Linux desktop users who have the Tracker search engine installed can use calliope.tracker or cpe tracker to list local music files.

Playlists stored as files

Use the calliope.import_.import_() function, or the cpe import command to load playlist files.

I recommend that you store your playlists in XSPF format. It’s the most flexible and widely supported playlist format I know of.

Playlists from applications

Most apps can import and export playlists in a format Calliope can read.
