Thank’s for your answer and sorry for my late reply. It’s look like a little bit tricky for me, do you have some example how to do that please ?
After reading this issue https://github.com/beetbox/beets/issues/3444 i’d be more comfortable with an “real”
exit code when beets failed to import music
My watch script look like this he run in background in a docker container on my Nas :
#!/bin/bash beets_dir="/config/beets" beets_config="/config/config.yaml" WATCH_DIR="/Incoming/Music" BEETSDIR=/config export BEETSDIR FPCALC=/usr/bin/fpcalc export FPCALC inotifywait -m -e create,moved_to --format '%w%f' "$WATCH_DIR" | while IFS= read -r dir_path; do /usr/local/bin/beet -c "$beets_config" import -q -i --flat "$dir_path" done
I might add a condition in the loop after Beets’s job like this (not tested):
#set my variable from beets's exit code beets_exit_code="$?" if [ ! "$beets_exit_code = 0 ] then cp -rf "$dir_path" /my/fallback_dir/ echo "[$date] Not imported $dir_path" >> $log_file fi
Another solution i said previously, can be to add a third option
skip for the
quiet_fallback “mode” who run script instead of implement code that i would be may be the only one who use it.
