AudioLink makes managing and searching for music easier.

AudioLink is a tool that makes searching for music on your local storage media easier and faster. Your searches can include a variety of criteria, like male artists, female artists, band, genre, etc.

It works with MP3 and Ogg Vorbis files and creates a MySQL database in which it stores the information about the music files. It creates symbolic links to the actual music files based on the search results. You can search for multiple fields, like artist, band, composer, lyricist, etc.

It is flexible, you have options of using a command line interface, multiple choices of GUIs, designing your own search criteria, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Currently, it's called AudioLink, 'cos the first milestone would just handle audio files... subsequent versions will be capable of searching for content in HTMLs, PDFs, PSs and other file formats.

This project started with my need of searching for files on my local machine, be it music or any stored information in .txt, .html, .pdf formats. The main goal of the software is to make searching for _content_ on local file systems (or remote file systems mounted in the local namespace) easier. This differs from other search tools, which look for files, not content. You can't use traditional tools like grep to search for songs or a particular artist, for example.

If you are in search of such a tool, AudioLink is for you!

The project will further be improved upon to include a LAN crawler, which will sniff on NFS, SMB, FTP, among other protocols, to collect information on the files residing on other machines as well.

AudioLink is currently stable and pretty usable. I use it daily on my desktop. Currently, it has only a command line interface (CLI), and creates symbolic links (symlinks) to the actual music files. Exporting to playlists in formats used by popular media players, supporting multiple GUIs and other options will be added soon.
