flaccurate - The music verification tool

Hello all,

I have been working on a music collection verification tool.  For all those OCD about their collection, wanting some (convenient) verification about its integrity over time.  I started out looking at a convenient wrapper around flac header checksum verification, but then wanted to extended the functionality to mp3 audio too, with a goal to make a web interface which displays your music collection, their checksum and their status.

For now it is a simple Python CLI - for those able to do so, you can of course clone the source code and install the deps to run it manually:
https://github.com/c1432666/flaccurate

For those running linux, I have provided a nuikta compiled executable as a release of the project on github:
https://github.com/c1432666/flaccurate/releases/download/v0.1.0/flaccurate-0.1.0-linux-amd64.zip

Usage feedback welcome.

Hi,

It's a very interesting project. Are you planning to build a GUI at some point?

Hi Vivasdavid,

Thanks for the feedback.  I intended to build a web based interface, which was going to be a simple wrapper around the contents of the database, and be able to kick off a scan.  I started it as a CLI, to get the main functionality up and running so I can get it out their and used by folks, and also in a form which could be invoked via cron for a regular check to be scheduled.

Out of interest, what are your expectations of a GUI if it had one?

Hi,

To start with, a simple interface would be enough, with the possibility of using drag and drop, just like AudioTester:

Why not use an existing tool like Multipar https://multipar.eu/ which provides automated recovery as well?

Hello,

The project seems to be interesting and I want to try it. Unfortunately, I can't manage to make it work, because I don't really know what to do with the files I downloaded. I downloaded the release you provided from Github.

What steps should I follow to use flaccurate? I'm running Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 at the moment, but can also run Windows 7.

Thanks in advance!
