TabLoader is an amaroK script for downloading Guitar Tabs.
This python script can download guitar tabulatures from the song, which is played, for you. After downloading, the tab can directly be opened by a program of your choice.
In this Version, only GuitarPro files from MySongBook.com are supported, but in later versions, support for other pages and for the PowerTab format will be implemented.
If you find bugs, or want to have a feature implemented, just send me a mail and let me know. The textbased browser "Lynx" is required in order to use this plugin. This will perhaps change in later versions.
How it works:
In the configuration dialog, you can say if you want to keep the tabs that get downloaded, and the location in which they should be downloaded to. If you don't want to keep them, they will be loaded in a temporary directory, and then deleted. You are also enabled to define the file format of your choice (GP3 or GP4) and define the command to open the tab with.
If you want to open them in DGuitar (http://dguitar.sourceforge.net), you can write something like this:
cd ~/DGuitar&&java -jar dist/DGuitar.jar
Please note, that you need at least the DGuitar developer version from 23.12.2005, because this is the first version which supports parameter passing.
If you want to use the original GuitarPro program emulated in wine, you can type something like this:
cd ~/".wine/dosdevices/c:/Programme/Guitar Pro 4"&&wine GP4.exe
This TabLoader script will pass the downloaded tab as a parameter.
To download a tab, just right-click on the playing song, chose "TabLoader" and then "mysongbook.com".
In the TODO list:
Add support for PowerTab files?
The tabs to download should be chosen based on the rating.
The user should have the possibility to choose which of the available tabs he want.
Please give me feedback.
What's New in This Release:
Sorry that it took so long, but it seems that MySongBook.com changed their design again. With this new version, TabLoader should work again.
