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

This page tries to list all external (to MusicBrainz) programs, scripts, reports, etc. that deal with MusicBrainz.

Possible incorrect data

Making editing easier

Access MusicBrainz using external APIs

Web Service Version 2 (current)

Web Service Version 1 (deprecated)

User scripts / GreaseMonkey / User javascripts / UserJS

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

Almost all those user scripts are stored at userscripts.org under the musicbrainz tag. Unfortunately userscripts.org is dying. Alternatives are listed at the GreaseSpot wiki.

Other known places with userscripts:

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.
