Scripting

I have been improving the Rename Filename/SubFolder Masks to allow a bit more control over how your files are named from your tags

i.e $if(%bestartist%,%bestartist%-)$if(%album%,%album%-)$if(%trackno%,%trackno%-)%title%
would could give you

The Cribs-The New Fellas-01-Hey Scenesters!.mp3
or
The New Fellas-01-Hey Scenesters!.mp3

depending on your metadata.

This syntax comes from http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Titleformat_Reference#.24if.28cond.2Cthen.2Celse.29

but for this release Jaikoz will not support much more than the simple if statement. However in later releases I plan to support more functions using a suitable templating/scripting language.

I'm a big fan of this feature. I store compilations differently than regular albums differently than singles. It would be awesome to be able to write one script to define the track names for all of them.

Thanks.
