I’ve recently put what I hope are the finishing touches to a hefty pull request initially started by @mxmerz 5 years ago to refresh the beets commandline UI!
The finished product looks like this on my machine:
The PR is here: Importer UI overhaul rebase/update by davidswarbrick · Pull Request #3721 · beetbox/beets · GitHub , it builds on initial discussions in import formatting hard to parse mentally · Issue #1593 · beetbox/beets · GitHub and implementation in Importer UI overhaul by sampsyo · Pull Request #1685 · beetbox/beets · GitHub
What we could do with now is more users! Give this code a try, take a screenshot, feedback anything you do/don’t like or any bugs, or if code review is more your style please do feedback any improvements. All being well it’s hopeful we can merge this in soon
