  1. Ability to define file permissions for Unix systems

    When Bliss modifies files on a Unix system it sets default file permissions of 644 using whatever owner and group that Bliss is running as. I would like to be able to define what permissions get applied to files, so I don't have to manually alter permissions if I want other users to be able to modify my music files.

    • The creation of an album catalogue interface

      Having a seperate web page that can view your collection (from chosen location) and browse the album art assigned - from this you can choose to correct artwork through bliss, this would be an excellent way of browsing your collection and correcting artwork once bliss has finished scanning

      • Adding a "Restart bliss" option to the web interface.

        This is a feature that I did not think would be needed, but with the latest version being released I was not able to see the update from the web UI until bliss was restarted. Since I run bliss on CentOS, there is no provided init scripts and the one I have created only starts bliss so the easiest and quickest way for me to reboot bliss is to bounce my server (which also serves media via SubSonic).

        The update process restarts bliss at the end so I assume the code for a restart is already written and could easily…

          • Add a 'starts with' filter to the artist overview

            The album overview has a 'starts with' filter which enabled you to filter by the start character.

            The same option should be available for the artist overview.

            • Shrink artwork (due to data size) should be automatic

              When art is too large (in terms of data size) the shrink artwork option is manual, I have to go through each album and click the fix. I'd rather they were all shrunk automatically.

              • Explain what directory or file has "No Album Title" when I hit 'why?'

                I have 12 'uncompliant' objects (albums? songs?) showing on the bliss screen which say 'No Album Title'. There's no explanation under 'why?', and AFAICT, no way to get the actual directory or file name of the offending object. So I have no idea what to fix!

                • Implement styles and moods tagging from Allmusic.com

                  The genre tagging from Allmusic.com is already implemented. Moods and styles would be an awesome addition.

                  • Add ability to filter and print the activity log

                    After Bliss has completed its library scan, it would be good to be able to identify those albums which Bliss touched and, more importantly, which ones it didn't (or couldn't).

                    Being able to filter the activity log by "found non-compliant" or "modified" and then printing that filtered list would make it much easier to then go through and manually correct those albums

                    • Add album art aspect ratio to compliance

                      99.9999% of album art is square as it is from a CD or vinyl cover, which is also square. Some album art online, while valid, is not square. Some are slightly rectangular, having the top and/or bottom slightly trimmed. This is annoying.

                      If the cover art system could be told (optionally) to exclude any images that aren't 1:1 aspect ratio (within a certain percentage, say two or three pixels either way), so that all the images you get presented with (and it auto detects while fixing) are square it would overcome the problem.

                      The cover art selector could have a…

                      • Individual rulesets for different locations.

                        Since multiple music folders are close to implementation, I want to be able to specify different rulesets for different folders.

                        • Support for "wildcard" directory prefix

                          Support for "wildcard" prefixes to allow for directory structure such as /storage/music/flac & /storage/music/mp3. Pointing Bliss to /storage/music currently generates a Uncompliant file path warning.

                          • Missing tracks in albums should be detected

                            Title says it all I think.

                            BLISS should (optionally) check if an album in a collection is complete or if it's missing songs and possibly even display the missing ones, so I know which ones to buy.

                            Pretty much like this beets plugin http://beets.readthedocs.io/en/v1.3.19/plugins/missing.html

                              • Automatically suggest image files of same folder as cover.

                                Some covers are hard to locate on the internet in large resolution, but I already have many in a subfolder called 'covers' per album.
                                Perhaps you can display these covers (the .jpg files wich are in the same folder as the mp3/flac and/or those in a subfolder called 'covers') immediately on the 'choose an alternative' tab.

                                  • Derived tags

                                    bliss should allow textual tags to contain "derived" data; that is, to provide consistent manipulations of canonical data to a defined scheme.

                                    An example of this may be to append the bitrate to an album name. Using a template engine, the album could be defined as so:

                                    Album name: <album name> [<format>]

                                    Tags could potentially be combined with others:

                                    Track name: <track name> (<artist name>)

                                    Set out in more detail here: https://www.blisshq.com/music-library-management-blog/2017/10/03/derived-tags/

                                      • Don't alter the timestamps on the files

                                        Bliss alters the timestamp on each file it fixes, this is really unwelcome behaviour. The timestamp is an important part of the metadata and I don't want it altered. I know that it is possible to change the file without altering the timestamp (on NTFS at least), could this feature be added?

                                        • Ability to enter missing track number (or set to 00)

                                          I have a number of pieces that are the result of recording old cassettes, or sometimes albums, or pieces that I have recorded live, or lectures, or whatever, that simply do not HAVE track numbers.

                                          Bliss complains that they're uncompliant, because they don't HAVE a track number... which is fine. But I have to bring up some external tag editor because BLISS doesn't let me enter a track number. Ideally, a "if track is missing utterly, number them in alpha order in that directory automatically, and don't ask me" function would be best. Or, perhaps, a "Set to 00" button,…
