Add-on tutorial for Audio - zag - 2015-12-16

I would like to see a new Add-on written as a tutorial for Audio over the web.

Source site: http://www.theaudiodb.com/testfiles/

- Audio Plugin listing the tracks on the above website page (all are cc licensed)
- It would be nice to see the cover art as well
- Code uploaded to GitHub and commented extensively

Thanks!

Gist for now without comments. https://gist.github.com/curti/d8e48b4c95538b3225fa

A thousand thanks for this!

I'll give it a test, but would really appreciate some comments so I can write a full tutorial based on it.

Brilliant!

Gist updated. I have added comments; however, it is not as thorough or as comprehensive as @Roman_V_M's video example add-on comments. Please feel free to add/remove comments as needed.

Thanks tested and working perfectly, although I had to download Beautiful soup module manually when using a clean install.

Thanks again, I will write up the tutorial soon.

Only improvement I can think of is to browse the albums instead of just tracks. But this should get most people going.

Excellent, odd that BeautifulSoup did not install automatically unless I missed something.

If I have some free time I may look into updating it to browse by album; but I initially decided against it because all the mp3 files are listed on the same page.

because it only installs deps when you go through the addon manager for install (install from zip/repo)
