mp3riot (formerly known as f2html.pl)
I decided to rename f2html.pl into mp3riot. the reason is, that
the name f2html.pl does not clearly indicate, for what the program
is best suited for. Because the program has grown so much (and
because the the name should be more attractive to get more users),
a renaming seems to be a must to me.
There are some important news about mp3riot / f2htmlpl. Please see the NEWS
for further details.
Mp3riot (formerly known as f2html.pl) is a command line utility that searches recursively through directories,
builds a file list (with additional file information), and generates html files, plylists, etc. The output can be controlled,
links can be corrected, and more. The script is mainly desigend to create Web pages, playlists, and databases
for mp3-files, but can also used for other purposes.
Read the manual for further details.
- supports playlists in m3u, pls, and xml format
- supports sql output
- creates html pages, templates can be used
- supports advanced grouping methods
- supports slection by date ranges, file extensions, and by random
- supports renaming of mp3 files using id3tag information, templates or guessing can be used
- advanced string manipulation methods
- and much more ...
Latest version: mp3riot-1.3.zip
Older versions of mp3riot / f2html.pl:
You can also download a windows executable compiled with perl2exe. Then you need not
to install perl. But I have not testet the functionality of the executable in detail. So it is best
to use perl and the source of mp3riot!
Windows binaries of mp3riot:
perl mp3riot [options]
You can use nearly all commands in a config file (and it is the best to do it this way!). The syntax then changes sligthly, so that, for example,
--dir changes to dir=
- -h, --help: Show this screen and exit
- -k, --mkconf:Use an assistant to write a config file
- -o, --os win/unix: Default "unix", otherwise windows
- -Q, --sortby value: Default is NAME (the filename). You can sort the filelist by the following criteria: URLNAME, SHOWNAME, DIR, NAME, TITLE, ARTIST, ALBUM, YEAR, COMMENT, GENRE, TRACKNUM, SIZE, MODTIME, VBR, BITRATE, FREQUENCY, MINUTES, SECONDS, FIRSTCHAR
- -n, --doublicates: Check for doublicates of files by their filename
- -D, --md5doublicates: Check for doublicates of files by their MD5 sum
- -V, --seekvalues <n,+-n,n>: Three values that have to be seperated by ",". This is an useful option for --md5doublicates.
The first one is the offset in bytes, the second is
the number of bytes to seek (and the direction), and
the last value tells the program where to start from (1 means to
start from the begining of a file, 2 means to start
from the end of a file. So, a combination of 1000,-1128,2
tells the programm to start 1128 bytes before the file ends
(id3v1 tag is 128 bytes long!) and use
1000 bytes for calculation of md5 sums.
- -b, --dbfile file: Write database to a file for searching it
- -m --m3u file: Write a m3u playlist file. Directory and filename or GROUPPATH for writing m3u files for groups.
- -X --xml file: Write a xml playlist file. Directory and filename or GROUPPATH for writing xml files for groups.
- -L --pls file: Write a pls playlist file. Directory and filename or GROUPPATH for writing pls files for groups.
- -W, --b4s file: Write a b4s playlist file. Directory and filename or GROUPPATH for writing b4s files for groups.
- -t, --html file: Write a html file. Directory and filename or GROUPPATH for writing html files for groups.
- -a, --http name: Define the http address for url
- -r, --remove: Remove id3tags (do you know what you are doing?)
- -i, --mp3info: Use mp3/ogg info for html output
- -e, --ext: Remove file extensions in html output
- -f, --filesize: Use filesize for html output
- -c, --check ext: Select files by their extension(s) (e.g. mp3). For every extension use a seperate flag!
- -z, --skip number: Skip n elements of mount/directories/names
- -p, --conf file: Use a config file
- -w, --utf8 file: File with UTF-8 code for replacements in links
- -q, --nocs: Do sorting not case sensitive
- -j, --statfile file: Write statistics to file
- -d, --dir directory: Define the (multiple) directory(ies) the mp3s are stored in. For every directory use a seperate flag!
- -g, --sql file: Filename to store sql table in (only for mp3 and ogg!)
- -y, --replace file: Name of replacement file; in the file use <string_1>=<string_2> to transform <string_1> into <string_2>;
special characters like a backslash have to be preceeded by a backslash "\\" (used for directories)
- -s, --seperate path: Write seperate html files for every character
- -R, --rename: Renames mp3 and ogg file using their id3tag. The use of rename_template in the configfile is optional. If rename_template is not used,
the program tries to create a filename like: ARTIST - ALBUM - TRACKNUMBER - TITLE by using the id3tag. It assumes, that the filenames have a similar format
and tries to guess, whether the id3tag has enough information to create a better filename. Old and new filenames are stored in RENAME.bak
- -B, --renameback: Renames files back using the file RENAME.bak
- -T, --templatesHtml templates are used. They have to be defined in the conmfig file using the commands html_head, html_change, html_body,
html_footer, html_sep_head. See the README for avalable templates!
- -G, --groupfile file: Filename for grouping information: <groupname1>=<TYPE>=<string1>,<string2>,...
Prossible types are: EQUAL, NAME, DIR, TITLE, ARTIST, ALBUM, YEAR, COMMENT, GENRE, TRACKNUM, SIZE, MODTIME, VBR, BITRATE, FREQUENCY, MM, SS, FIRSTCHAR
- -P, --grouppath path: The path, where to write the html files for group
- -O, --older number: Only files are selected, having a modification time higher than the specified days
- -Y, --younger number: Only files are selected, having a modification time less than the specified days
- -I, --id3tag: Use the id3 tag to get infos
- -S, --random number: Percentage of file to select randomly (e.g. 50 to select 50% of files/every second file)
Additionally, in the config file it is possible to use the commands:
- exec= param: Execute system command. This command can be used multiple times
- rename_template=string:string with templates for renaming files by their id3tag (to be used together with --rename)
The following rename templates are available: **TITLE**, **ARTIST**, **ALBUM**, **YEAR**, **COMMENT**, **GENRE**. **TRACKNUM**
- html_head= string: Html code for the head
- html_change= string: Html code if the first character between two file names change
- html_body= string: Html code for each filename
- html_footer= string: Html code for the foot
- html_sep_head= string: Html code for the head seperate html files by first character
The following html templates are available: **SUMOFFILES**, **SUMOFMEGS**, **DATE**, **URLNAME**, **SHOWNAME**, **DIR**, **NAME**, **TITLE**,
**ARTIST**, **ALBUM**, **YEAR**, **COMMENT**, **GENRE**, **TRACKNUM**, **SIZE**, **MODTIME**, **VBR**, **BITRATE**, **FREQUENCY**, **MINUTES**,
**SECONDS**, **HTMLINDEX**, **FIRSTCHAR**

- The option -q has been implemented and allows for doing the procedures in a non case sensitive way.
- The option -j has been implemented. A html file with statistics can be written out.
- The manual has been updated.
- The option -c has been updated. Now this option can be used more

"In the past year, Dronecode's developer community has grown from 1,200 to more than 2000 contributors, with more than 12,000 commits in the codebase. The rate of development is rapid with 1,000 commits being reviewed a month, with well over 2 million lines of code across the various Dronecode projects. Developers from Qualcomm, Intel, Parrot, Yuneec and many others are actively engaged in the development of the Dronecode technology stack. As a result, updates, new releases and project milestones are in motion all the time. For example, in late May, the APM project released version 3.3 of its flight code, and the PX4 project reached a milestone with the first RC candidate for release 1.0."|

kinds of apps. Native apps are developed using Qt; it will also support
apps written in GTK, Android apps, Ubuntu apps, and many others, if the
license allows and the app can be made to work at a technical

notes that "there are also a number of DNS-centric people with a

hundreds of e-mails."Among those offering resistance, it
reports, is Internet Architecture Board Chair Andrew Sullivan, who
