LocalAudioFiles by Horst Nogajski

The Local Audio Files DB is a combination of a Module and a SiteProfile. It is intended to import MP3-files from your filesystem into ProcessWire, read ID3-Tags and pull coverImages from it to feed the DB.

The Local Audio Files DB is a combination of a Module and a SiteProfile. It is intended to import MP3-files from your filesystem into ProcessWire, read ID3-Tags and pull coverImages from it to feed the DB.

####How does it work?####

  • The Site has 4 sibling Tree Branches: genres - artists - albums - songs
  • Each of them hold child-pages: genre - artist - album - song
  • The logical relations are nested parent-children ones: a genre hold artists, each artist hold albums, each album hold songs
  • To support both, slim and fast data relations & the logical hirarchy, the module extends the ProcessWire variable $page with some additions. It uses the addHookProperty mechanism to achieve that
  • It uses an own caching mechanism for large lists, that can be prebuild when running the importer-shellscript, or it build the cache on demand
  • Also it comes with a FrontEndHandler class that provides a lot of functionality, for example fully customizable FormSelectFields of all genres, artists or albums
  • More detailed informations and code examples are collected in a demo section of the site

The extended $page variable together with the LocalAudioFiles-FrontEndHandler gives you comprehensive tools to work with your music collection.

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
