===Userscripts===
 
 
 
see: [[External_Resources#User_scripts_.2F_GreaseMonkey_.2F_User_javascripts_.2F_UserJS|Exterenal Resources / User scripts]]
 
 
 
Userscripts generally only work under [http://getfirefox.com Firefox] with the [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/ Greasemonkey] extension. Google Chrome support can be very hit-or-miss, Opera compatibility is very sparse. Script compatibility under [http://google.com/chrome Google Chrome] is greatly increased when using the [http://www.chromeextensions.org/appearance-functioning/tampermonkey/ TamperMonkey] extension.
 
 
 
===Parsers===
 
 
 
[https://github.com/VxJasonxV/MusicBrainz-Track-Parsers Bandcamp, Beatport, and Local File Parsers] (with great assistance comes great responsibility)
 
 
 
These parsers are meant to be run at the command line passing in either a URL (Bandcamp release, or Beatport release), or a directory with a set of files. The local file parsers run on all files in a directory with the same extension, and are intended to output a whole release, suitable for copying / pasting into the tracklist page's Track Parser. They are written in Perl, require at least Perl v5.10 and a differing set of Perl Modules based off the particular service. The local file parsers are currently format specific.
