IntelliJ and Rails

After I had seen this post where it was announced that the next version of IntelliJ (still a GREAT IDE for Java) will support Rails. Well, now it's been released and there's no word about it. A search on the JetBrains site gives no hits for "Rails" either (not even as a plugin). Very disapointing. Will have to stick with RADRails then. Or does any reader know if Rails for IntelliJ is still/already alive/available?

UPDATE: Dmitry has provided a link for the plugin (see comments). Thanks, Dmitry! Given JetBrain's history with IDEs I am very much looking forward to giving this a try.

We never promised to include Rails support in IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. The Ruby/Rails plugin is being developed independently from the IDE itself, and is currently at a pre-alpha stage.

You can get more information about the plugin at http://www.jetbrains.net/confluence/display/RUBYDEV/Home.

Python script to set genre in iTunes with Last.fm tags

Now that I have started to seriously use iTunes I figured it might be nice to have the genre tag set in a meaningful way. Since I have a reasonably large collection of mp3s doing that manually was out of question - I wrote me a Python script to do that. There seems to be a large demand for such a functionality (at least I found a lot of questions on how to automatically set the genre tag) so maybe someone else finds the script useful. It is pasted below.

General Strategy

The basic idea is to use Last.fm's tags for genre tagging. In iTunes the genre tag is IMO best used when it only contains one single genre, i.e. something like "Electronica", not something like "Electronica / Dance". On the other hand dropping all but one tag would lose a lot of information, so I decided to use the groupings tag for additional information that is contained in the list of tags that an artist has on Last.fm. In the example above that would be something like "Electronica, Dance…

mp3tagger on GitHub

On the mp3 tagger post I have received quite a bit of feedback and feature requests. Therefore, I thought it might be a good idea to do "social coding" and put the code on GitHub where it can easily be forked (and the forks can be watched).

Other than that, the latest version of the tagger contains these improvements:
the Last.fm keys and secret are not stored in the code anymore, but entered on the first run and stored in ~/.mp3tagger.cfgyou can run the script in two additional modes: simulation and ask. In simulation mode no changes to mp3s will be saved, in ask mode you will be asked to save each change. Start the script with flags "-m simulation" or "-m ask", respectively.It is now possible to specify a list of genre tags that will be considered (additionally to the mp3 default genre tags). The list needs to be stored in a config file at ~/.mp3tagger_genres.cfg (in the "generic" section of the file). The full format this file needs to have is …
