Hi,

I just wrote a small plugin for fetching lyrics from MusixMatch and would like to share it with the community. MusixMatch does not allow to get more than 30% of the lyrics through the API due to licensing restrictions.
To make the plugin work, one has to install a musixmatch python api and obtain a API Key from MusixMatch, which is for free. The installation instructions would be contained in the plugin .py file.

I did not find a place where I could upload the plugin. The forum here does not allow me to upload .py files. Does anyone know how I can make the plugin available?

Best

You can add a pull request on https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins to have your plugin included in the official plugin list.

Note that the need for an external Python library will make this impossible to use for Windows and most OSX users, so if possible the dependency should be bundled with the plugin.

Cool, thanks a lot. I added a pull request (https://github.com/metabrainz/picard-plugins/pull/60) and added the needed modules to the plugin.
