lastfm-autocorrect

A transform stream (objectMode) that attempts to auto-correct and enhance track metadata using Last.fm's correction API, Levenstein distance and SoundEx.

It does the following things:

  • Tries to correct the track title, artist name and album name. If any of these have been corrected the autocorrected property will be true and the corresponding boolean properties trackCorrected, artistCorrected, albumCorrected will be set.
  • If any of track title, artist name or album name have been corrected, the original data will be stored in the original property.
  • Will try to find the MBIDs (MusicBrainz IDs) for track title, artist name and album title and store them in trackMBID, artistMBID, albumMBID accordingly.
  • Sets a duration property containing the track duration in milliseconds. If Last.fm does not provide a duration, the average duration of all tracks that have passed through the stream will be used.

This module requires a Last.fm API key.

API

new LastfmAutocorrectStream(lastfmApiKey)

  • lastfmApiKey: Your Last.fm API key

Input Format

The stream takes JavaScript objects in the following format:

{
    title: "The track title",
    artist: "The artist name",
    album: "The album title"
}

Example

var LastfmAutocorrectStream = require('lastfm-autocorrect'),
    SomaStationStream = require('somastation'),
    through = require('through');

var LASTFM_API_KEY = 'YOUR_LASTFM_API_KEY';
var groovesalad = new SomaStationStream('groovesalad');
var autocorrect = new LastfmAutocorrectStream(LASTFM_API_KEY);

groovesalad
    .pipe(through(function (track) {
        console.log('Original:');
        console.log(track);
        this.queue(track);
    }))
    .pipe(autocorrect)
    .pipe(through(function (track) {
        console.log('Auto-corrected:');
        console.log(track);
    }))

Output:

Original:
{ artist: 'Global Communication', title: '9 25', album: '76 14' }

Auto-corrected:
{ artist: 'Global Communication',
  title: '9 25',
  album: '76.14',
  trackCorrected: false,
  artistCorrected: false,
  trackMBID: null,
  artistMBID: null,
  albumCorrected: true,
  albumMBID: null,
  duration: '578000',
  autocorrected: true,
  original: { artist: 'Global Communication', title: '9 25', album: '76 14' } }
