It's goal is to be able to catalog your entire CD collection allowing for searches of your CD/DVD files with a clean and simple interface.
Easy to use interface (if you feel it does not follow the gnome hig then it's a bug).
Allow the use of plugins (external programs) to collect information for each file of a CD in your catalog.
Searches can be performed on CDs or files in the collection.
It also catalogs compressed files (using external programs such as unzip, unrar, etc.).
The following programs and libraries are needed to run CDCollect:
- Mono version 1.1.17 or later.
- gtk-sharp libraries version 2.8 (including gtk, glade, gdk and gnome).
- sqlite library version 3.2 (so mono can use it).
You can download the official releases of CDCollect and get information on the changes for the new versions in the news page.
For the brave out there you can try the public svn repository with the latest development version. Note that the svn version may not compile at all for some time!To checkout the CDCollect svn repository you need to type this command on a terminal "svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/cdcollect/cdcollect/trunk cdcollect"
If you do not use the provided packages, you can compile the source of CDCollect with the usual chain "./configure", "make", "make install". or using monodevelop (use the project file "cdcollect.mds").
Bugs and Feedback
CDCollect is still in a early stage of development so if you have any comment go to the sourceforge project page and please fill any bugs there.
