Overview

ID3 Parsing For Go

Andrew Scherkus May 21, 2012

Introduction

Simple ID3 parsing library for go based on the specs at www.id3.org.

It doesn't handle everything but at least gets the imporant bits like artist, album, track, etc...

Usage

Pass in a suitable io.ReadSeeker and away you go!

f, err := os.Open("foo.mp3")
if err != nil {
        return err
}
defer f.Close()
tags, err := id3.ReadFile(f)
if err != nil {
        return err
}
fmt.Println(tags["artist"])

Examples

An example tag reading program can be found under id3/tagreader.

go get github.com/bobertlo/go-id3/tagreader
tagreader path/to/file.mp3 [...]
