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 1 (deprecated)

User scripts / GreaseMonkey / User javascripts / UserJS

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 in file lists)

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.
