The package python-musicbrainz2 is a client library written in python, which provides easy object oriented access to the MusicBrainz Database using the XMLWebService. It has been written from scratch and uses a different model than PythonMusicbrainz, the first generation python bindings.

API documentation can be created from the source code using epydoc and is also available online. The source distribution comes with example code which demonstrates some of the most important features. Questions about python-musicbrainz2 can be asked on the MusicBrainz DevelopersMailingList.

Installation

Mac OS X: ctypes 0.9.6 doesn't compile using gcc-4.0

According to 1157, you have to patch ctypes to make it compile. There is a patch against ctypes-0.9.6. You may also use ctypes-0.9.9.3 or later which seems to compile, but this version doesn't work with the old python-tunepimp package, so picard-0.6 won't work. picard-0.7 doesn't require the old python-tunepimp anymore and will work.
