Note: this page needs more flesh and to be linked to.

This page tries to list all tools external to MusicBrainz that make editing or viewing data more convenient. These include any programs, scripts, reports, etc from various sources.

Editing tools

Making editing easier

User scripts / GreaseMonkey / User javascripts / UserJS

See Guides/Userscripts.

User scripts are javascripts that a user installs in one’s browser and that change the behaviour of visited website (MusicBrainz). Those scripts will add some functionalities to MusicBrainz or let the user do many repetitive things in only one click, etc.

Some user script repositories (alpha sorted):

Other known places with userscripts:

※ Here is a bitbucket/github/gitlab userscript installer (it adds green icons to INSTALL scripts directly from those repository file lists)

Parsers

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.
These metadata parser extract virtual any type of metadata from any type of audio track, including MusicBrain Identifiers or other metadata tags supported by MusicBrainz Picard.

Valuable online databases

See Other Databases.

URI Description Comments (on reliability etc...)
http://www.discogs.com/ Discogs
http://allmusic.com/ Allmusic
http://en.wikipedia.org/ Wikipedia
http://amazon.com
http://amazon.co.uk
http://amazon.fr Releases dates often wrong
http://amazon.de Often omits to mark imports as "[Import]"
http://www.metal-archives.com Encyclopaedia_Metallum
http://www.encyclopedisque.fr For French vinyls
http://www.lpdiscography.com/ Has dates, labels, and catalog numbers

About amazon's [Import] label not trustworthy, here is the smoke-proof to check whether the IMPORT is bogus or not on .fr Switch the tld to .de: http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00004UH7R Check what they have as a label, in this case: Label: France (Megaphon Importservice) => it comes from france, and the [Import] is on .fr is bogus.
