I am trying to install the beets-popularity plugin on my beets installed via Docker on my Synology NAS. When running the install script i get this error:
Any idea how can i fix it, or if there is another similar plugin that i can install easier ?
Thanks. Did the upgrade but now it seems that the plugin cannot be found. Tried the manual steps from GitHub - abba23/beets-popularity: Beets plugin to fetch and store popularity values as flexible item attributes but git does not seem to exist inside the container.
Does Synology use the LSIO Docker container?
Hello! It looks like
beets-popularity is not on PyPI:
…so it will not be installable via
pip. Perhaps the plugin author deleted it from PyPI. If you want to forge ahead anyway, you would probably need to clone the repo yourself and install it from there.
You could also try installing directly from GitHub with
pip install git+https://github.com/abba23/beets-popularity.git
Trying your suggestion gives me:
this is the container i am using Docker
From the screenshot you’ve provided, it seems like git isn’t installed in the container. As the container seems to be Alpine based, try
apk add git (you may need an
apk update to refresh the package repository before running this).
@jackwilsdon your help was much appreciated. i managed to make it work now. all the best !
Does this survive container recreation though?
No. But i exported locally the container with all settings
I don’t know how you do this with Synology, but if there’s a way you can add your own custom additional volume you can script it: Customizing our Containers | LinuxServer.io
