LyricsFinder is a modular and easily expandable Python Package that is used to extract lyrics from music. By having the ability to use a combination of a Google Custom Search Engine and a set of extractors for several sources, lyrics are attained with much higher accuracy and generally from the best desired source.
- Python 3.6+ with
Note: While the Google tools aren't technically required for this project, much of the beneficial functionality depends on such keys/search engines. However, direct searching/parsing from a supported URL source is possible to incorporate with this package, though not the recommended way to utilize it (unless one requires a specific application requirement/design need).
The following modules will be automatically downloaded and installed as part of the standard setup:
sudomay be required to install depending on your system setup. If any permission errors occur, please use the sudo flags.This package can easily be installed with one of
pip install lyricsfinder # if pip matches Python 3.6+
pip3 install lyricsfinder # if pip3 matches Python 3.6+
pipversion matches that of Python.
Many systems will allocate
pip3to Python 3.x+, so
pip3can be used if your system has this installed. (
pipwill, in this case, be associated with Python 2.7.x)
Alternatively, you can install directly (ensure
python3 --versionis 3.6 or greater):
python3 -m pip install -U https://github.com/GieselaDev/LyricsFinder/archive/master.zip
From Source (slower/manual way):
$ git clone https://github.com/GieselaDev/LyricsFinder.git
$ cd LyricsFinder
$ python3 -m pip install .
Testing the package (optional):
You can now import the package
lyricsfinderas normal within your project.
lyrics = lyricsfinder.search_lyrics("Dusk till Dawn", google_api_key="api key")
Lyricsinstance (see below).
LyricsFinder is designed with expandability in mind. The following is a very brief structure of the project:
- Results can be stored in JSON format to cache by using
json.dumpon the dict that is returned by calling
- The original
LyricsOriginmodel class contains the following attributes:
- Similarly, the
Lyricsmodel class contains the following attributes:
lyricscontain newline parsed lyrics, the
querywhich was searched for, the
source_namefrom one of the listed sources in the above chart (such as Genius), the
source_urlwhich contains the base URL of the source, and the
urlcontains the direct link for the track lyrics on the given source. The
timestampis a standard UNIX timestamp from the request time and the
titleis the parsed title of the track in question.
Please see the example of an implementation of this at the bottom of this README.
Some current implementations:
Lyrics are cached in MongoDB for faster loading in this implementation.
[IMPORTANT] Please note that the above live example is not for large-scale use; the public API is monitored and rate limited to prevent abuse. If you wish to host your own version, the GiTils package linked above is the implementation of the API (along with other utilities).
Please feel free to open any issues on GitHub for questions and/or support. We're happy to help!
