List music library

I usually keep a page with an updated list of all the songs in my library in this link.

Two good list generators are Oidua and Dnuos. I prefer the layout of Dnuos, so that’s the one I’ll talk about here.

Installing Dnuos

Method 1:

  1. Download the Dnuos package available on AUR:

  2. Install normally

    $ tar xvfz dnuos.tar.gz
    $ cd dnuos
    $ makepkg

The package version 1.0.11-2 available on AUR gave an error during installation. My solution was to install it manually.

Method 2:

  1. Install Mercurial

    $ sudo pacman -S mercurial
  2. Download the folder with the Dnuos source code

    $ hg clone
  3. Install Dnuos

    $ cd dnuos
    $ sudo python2.7 install


The program has several options as parameters, but the one I use to create my list is:

$ dnuos --template=html -f musicas.html /media/external/Music/

This takes a few minutes, the time depends on the size of your library.
