  npm install node-id3v2.4

  const nodeID3v2 = require('node-id3v2.4');

  let tag = nodeID3v2.readTag(filename);

node-id3tag

After installation 'node-id3tag' command will also be available for use in shell/cmd.

Help:

you can try to get help on 'topic' (and 'subtopic')

    node-id3tag [-?|-h]
    node-id3tag -? picturetype
    node-id3tag -h frametype image

List tag with:

    node-id3tag -l 'path/to/file.mp3'

Add frame:

    node-id3tag -af artist,'the artists name' 'path/to/file.mp3'

Add frame and list tag:

    node-id3tag -l -af image,'path/to/image','picturetype' 'path/to/file.mp3'

Tag is not writen until you add '-u' argument:

    node-id3tag -l -u -af TXXX,'my description','my text' 'path/to/file.mp3'

Remove frame:

    node-id3tag -u -RF title 'path/to/file.mp3'

Remove ambiguous frame with:

    node-id3tag -u -RF TXXX 'path/to/file.mp3'

gives a message:

    [-1] : removeFrame: insufficient criteria: ''. should be 'description'

so you have to:

  node-id3tag -u -RF TXXX,'my description' 'path/to/file.mp3'

Notes:

There are many media files in the wild with malformed tags or frames, which sometimes leads to unpredictable behaviour.

TODO:

  • support for all possible frame types
  • use 'template' approach for reading in data ( add Buffer.eat() )
  • clean code
  • improve stability with malformed tags/frames
