id3-genre

Map of ID3 "Genre" field names to byte number

id3-genre

Install with npm:

$ npm install id3-genre
var genre = require('id3-genre');
 
// byte number to name (for reading ID3v1) 
genre(93);
// "Psychedelic Rock" 
 
genre(107);
// "Booty Bass" 
 
genre(200);
// "Unknown" 
 
 
// name to byte number (for generating ID3v2) 
genre('Hip-Hop');
// 7 
 
// `null` for unknown names 
genre('Bad Mamma Jamma');
// null 

If a Number is passed in, then the byte number is looked in in the genres table and the matching String genre is returned, or "Unknown" if a value < 0 or > 147. This is useful for reading the ID3v1 genre byte for human display.

If a String is passed in, then the genre name is looked up in the genres table, and the byte number for the given genre is returned, or null if an unknown genre is given. This is useful for getting the byte number when saving ID3v1 tags.
